Diagnosis:
ICD-10: G47.31 Primary central sleep apnea

Supply:
ASV Machine
Duration: 12
Max Exhalation Pressure: 15cm
Min Exhale Pressure: 4cm
Maximum Pressure Support: 15cm
Minimum Pressure Support: 3

"Provide all necessary supplies, heated tubing, water chamber, headgear, chinstrap, heated humidifier, and please fit with a PAP mask.  Please set patient up ASAP."

The order is under clinical review.  Fingers crossed!


That is indeed a prescription for the Aircurve 10 ASV, and those are near-default settings.  So much for the "sweet spot".   Dielaughing

The insurance team approved it! Now the DME needs paperwork from the insurance provider and my doctor before they will dispense the machine. Endless hoops to jump through!
