You might want to talk to your doc about the problems you are having with your treatment.
Hang in there for more responses to your post and much success to you.
I finally got an appointment to see my sleep doctor. He said ASV might be the ideal machine. However, I have some heart issues and he said he will not prescribe ASV for someone with heart issues. He said that there might not be too much more I can do with the breathing machine end of things to get my AHI from 6-8, which are what it usually is, to under 5. That is too much fine tuning. He said if I want to control the CSA, I should try to improve my heart function. He also said that my tiredness and lack of energy might be due to the medication I am on (beta blocker and blood pressure medication) which tends to, as he put it, "put my heart in the jacuzzi". In other words, if I is pumping less energetically to help extend its life, I may naturally just have less energy.
He did end by saying that if I wanted to try it, I could lower my pressure from 11 to 10. I've done that and am going to monitor the data to ensure OA don't get any worse, and I'll see what happens with CA.
He also gave me the reference to the AASM practice parameters document for dealing with CSA.
So, I am going to lower my pressure and will also try to get more exercise to get my heart functioning better. Maybe an improved diet will also all my GP to lower the dosage of the blood pressure meds.
Thanks for the help.
