Now I see Cheyne Stokes emerging???

Now I see Cheyne Stokes emerging???
Hi Everyone,
My journey to getting proper therapy continues.  My series of docs have been a challenge, to say the least.  When I first joined this group, you recommended I be treated for CSA with ASV.  Yet my docs and insurance company don't agree!  I started on BiPap, when it failed, they switched me to CPAP.  When it failed, AutoCPAP.  Today I got to see my doc again, to surrender once again.  Its been a grueling and difficult process.  I downloaded my data to Sleepyhead this morning, hadn't done that in a few weeks.  But with the doctor's appointment today, I wanted to be ready.  Looking at the data, I now see Cheyne-Stokes breathing being reported for the first time.  Yikes!  What do you think?  Could the choice of therapy be the cause?  Could this just be some anomaly?  How worried should I be?

Thanks a ton for your consideration.
JP

I would hold off on jumping to firm conclusions just now.  Often our machines say CSR, but upon closer inspection they are CA's after all.

The charts you have posted can't tell us much; there is no 'discrete' hourly data that we can use to say one way or another.  Please post a screenshot of your 'daily' charts.

As stated above a bit of PB isn't bad, but your history to me still says ASV. We need a 15 minute view of the Flow rate to verify CSR

This should be posted in your other thread, Now I have to search and find it to make sure I'm not saying anything that is contra-indicated.
