Risks using EERS?
#11
RE: Risks using EERS?
The EERS article references the physicians that developed and who routinely prescribe and furnish EERS modifications. I think it's always best to work with your doctor rather than experimenting with solutions that sound good. The EERS is a fairly simple concept, and lends itself to DIY experimentation provided you understand the objectives and respiratory feedback mechanisms at work. If your son has little or no central apnea as diagnosed from sleep tests, but manifests problematic CA when using PAP, then experimenting with rebreathing space is an alternative to options like ASV. Conservative addition of expiratory space either improves the problem or not, and can be fine-tuned based on experimentation. I have no argument with other members advocating doing this in cooperation with the physician.
