Upgraded to the AutoSet from the Elite. Now, reading the data, centrals are showing up where I have never had them before.
With 2 weeks of data from the Elite, not a single central apnea. On the first night with the AutoSet, I had them appear. Note: my first night w/the AutoSet was set exactly as the Elite (cpap mode at 11). I didn't use auto until the next night.
Someone answered on a previous thread that both machines are capable of recording/recognizing centrals. I'm just baffled though because the only variable that has changed was the machine. Wondering, did anyone else ever experience this type of thing? Any ideas to why it may be occurring??
Btw, AHI's are still <2 consistently w/the Elite and AutoSet so I am very thankful for that! Just trying to figure why the AutoSet shows them and the Elite did not...strange!
A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures....
My AutoSet (used at straight 7 pressure) also registers random centrals on most nights, see my last thread. It could be the way the machine reads your breathing. Also, not sure how different the two machines are but it could be your body getting used to a new device.

I just recently had this problem. My centrals were eliminated by turning off EPR. I had it set at 3. In my case though my AHI was creeping up.
