Have you tried to lower your pressure to see if it would reduce the centrals ?? I have an Resmed Adapt and it is in the ASV mode and my pressures are 4-3-8 much lower then yours, and during my 3 sleep studies the higher the pressure they applied the more centrals it caused ..I'm a new user less then a month .
I was getting 27 out of 29 an hour and the ASV treatment has stopped all of them .. I still have apnea and hypopnea's some which are probably stopped centrals and mine are caused by pain and the continuous use of opioid medication for a back injury . So my AHI varies because of its use but am having good days as low as .45 and bad nights are in the 6 to 8 range so far with it .. so much of a improvement, and today finally I think I am starting to feel the effects in a good way !
