Very Strange OSCAR Results
#1
Very Strange OSCAR Results
In my entire 10+ years of PAP therapy, I've never had results like this before. 
I must admit that last night was a "fitful" sleep session where I remember quite a few arousals. Probably 5 occasions. 
I'm guessing that the clumps of centrals would probably correspond to the times I woke up, but it just looks very odd and extremely unusual for me. 
The second screenshot is a typical sleep session for me. 

   
   
My get-up-and-go musta got up and went.  Cool

RE: Very Strange OSCAR Results
You got into some "periodic breathing," where you do some heavier breathing, which blows off some CO2, which reduces your drive to breathe, which results in a CA, which is followed by heavier recovery breathing, and on and on. I bet you're right that this is connected with your fitful sleep. When you experience an arousal from sleep, this often involves heavier breathing, which can set off a periodic breathing cycle.

Just keep an eye on it. If you see this every now and again, I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. If it gets to be a regular thing, you might turn off your EPR to see whether that helps.

Thanks, Dormeo.
That’s pretty much what I was thinking too. 

I’ll watch things and hopefully this just a one-off situation.
