How to identify central or complex apneas using software

RE: How to identify central or complex apneas using software
That should have been enough to titrate on the ASV, I would ask the doctor to organise another sleep study on it. As you know, you still need the leak fixed though.

"More currently sleep lab 2/2017 resulted in ResMed Air Curve 10 VAuto with results:
OA 10.4, CA 12.5, Unk 10.1, AHI 37.3"

For auto-cpap from machine data, or software. Set the min pressure at 'med' median pressure or 90% OR 2cm below 95% pressure. max pressure at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings

Thanks   I will keep you posted on developments.   Earlier I said things move like molasses and  they still are.   I'll post next week after new mask is available.

You were on ST. You have mixed apnea, that the ST will treat, although not well. So they send you home with a Vauto in S mode. it doesn't get sillier than this. I'd dust off the old ST, till it's sorted.

Sorry, I got mixed up when you said the latest. Of course you have the ST, it says so all though this thread and your charts. I haven't really spoke about results other than the leaks, that prevent the machine holding the 14 and 23cm pressure.

From earlier:  "You were on ST. You have mixed apnea, that the ST will treat, although not well. So they send you home with a Vauto in S mode. it doesn't get sillier than this. I'd dust off the old ST, till it's sorted. "

You are right about that.   In the middle of the Mar - May 2017 situation with the VAuto I had about 3,000 miles of driving to do.   I switched back to my old S/T to get enough sleep and treatment to feel safe to drive.   After a few weeks of VAuto I felt myself going "down hill" yet I had to comply with Medicare usage.  FWIW c!

You are going to feel a lot better once the leak is fixed and the machine can treat the OA/H and provide a backup breath for the CA.
