Sleeprider, what settings would you recommend on the current machine?  If you provide the information, then if Gbarrie feels he must talk with the clinic before making changes, he can tell them precisely what he is going to do.

Gbarrie, I'm still curious to know the answer to these questions:  Do you have some way of knowing that these hypopneas are central in nature (rather than obstructive)? For example, did you have a bunch of central hypopneas flagged in your sleep study? Anything else you can tell us about how your doctor arrived at the diagnosis of central apnea?

I have never seen my sleep study when I mentioned it at my last visit I was told " you don`t need to see it we look after that "  I am going to contact them and make an appointment to see her but having this info will certainly help.

RE: Central Apnea
In Canada, (Ontario at least) your health records are yours, held in custody by your doctor. You do have a right to a copy of them at a nominal cost. My clinic charged $20 for each of my reports. I didn't ask for the raw data records, mostly because They are too detailed until interpreted.

I found that a simple call to the actual clinic that did the study emailed me my file at first request, no cost. The doctor doing the interpretation, that is a whole other issue so far. I am in Ontario Canada as well.
