Cheyenne stokes respiration
#1
Hope you can shed some light. Last night (for the first time since I started using my machine), I had 15 minutes of cheyenne stokes respiration (all clumped together). How should I interpret that?

I asked a similar question not too long ago. not sure how to link another post though. scroll down below your post to "possibly related threads..." for several threads that will likely answer your question. post again if not, for the experienced members to weigh in.

Hi sleepytimegal,
No need to worry about an occasional cheyne stokes (periodic breathing) episode. Most of us experience this now and then. If this was continuous through the night or something you see more often, you could bring it up to your doctor. Cheyne Stokes is often associated with heart disease, but as I said if this is an occasional episode, I wouldn’t worry over it.

If you would like someone to look at your chart to give you peace of mind, post it here.

Follow the links in my signature line for organizing graphs and then use the attachment feature to post a screenshot of the daily page.

There are more threads on this subject...scroll down to bottom of page “possibly related threads.”

While this answer is a little late, Yes! Post #1 and the Thread url are the same.

Cheyne Stokes.  Not the aboriginal stokes.  Smile

Hi sleepytimegal,
Thanks for posting a graph.  If this cluster of Periodic Breathing and Clear Airways around 7:20 is a one time occurrence, I wouldn’t pay much attention to it.  If this occurred all night or more often, then you may want to bring it up to your doctor or Cardiologist just to rule out any other health issue. Just keep watch on it.

One thing I suggest is to change your EPR setting from 3 to 2.  This may help prevent
Clear Airway events, and it’s not likely you would even notice a difference in the EPR.
Otherwise, your results look good.
