Thanks Trish.  Fred, I've had my echo and the doc said: --While the left ventricular ejection fraction remains reduced (35%--normal is about 55%), there has been some modest improvement in the left ventricular ejection fraction (previously 25%).    No problem with fine tuning the cpap settings.

So I guess at this time, I'm ready to forged ahead. I realized that I check most of the boxes for causes of central apnea as outlined in that Mayo Clinic info you gave me.  The only other info I need update is that I've started wearing a cervical collar about 3 weeks ago.

I'm available and open to all suggestions.  Let the games begin.

At LVEF <= 45%, yours is 35% and previously 25%, you are not a candidate for ASV to treat your Central Apnea.

I understand. I'm hoping at this point that I can tune up the pressure. I noticed that I've experienced a significant reduction in the central apenas by adding the collar. So that positional adjustment was helpful. I have also eliminated the ramp up. 

Any other thoughts appreciated.
