Is this Cheyne-Stokes?

Is this what Cheyne-Stokes respiration looks like?

I'm afraid I need a BPAP machine for my central apneas... What do you think?

I would suggest that you download your data in ResScan too and see what it shows.

Hope this helps a little bit.

looks like you had a lot of events. Can you post the statistics from ResScan?

Sure. These are the days I slept with my mother's S9.

And these are the latest stats of the machine I am currently sleeping with. The hospital gave it to me for 3 nights to complete the auto-titration at home.

I don't know. Is it possible for you to talk to your doctor about this?

Yes, it is. But my appointment for today was postponed, so I'll have to wait until next week.

On the other hand, I think the total AHI is too low (less than 5) for the central apneas to matter at all. I'm sure they won't prescribe an ASV to lower the AHI from 4 to 0.

If you are really concerned, especially since you wont be seen until next week, ask 2 talk 2 the nurse or have your doc call you 2day.
