Think about what the machine sees and what it is trying to figure out. It only sees the end of the tube and has to identify apneas, by type. It does this with pressure pulses and is trying to figure out if there is:
A. a tube, a mask, and lungs (central)OR
B. a tube, and a mask (obstructive)
in your case it will now see a bottle, a tube, a mask and then maybe lungs. This will "look" different and react differently to the pressure pulses. I would think that if you had a large enough bottle, the machine would lose the ability to detect central apneas because the volume of the bottle would look like the same volume of lungs.
Thanks, I have also made up a 250ml bottle would that be a better bet. Cheers Steve
