another question-cheyne-stoke breathing?
#1
I just got back from picking up the equipment for another level three sleep study and the Respiratory therapist asked how I have been doing in the last few days(I was just there on Thursday). I said I felt I wasn't doing that great with the CPAP so she printed out a reading and seemed quite shocked. She said that I showed periods of cheyne-stoke breathing which were highlighted in green on the paper. She said she was sending it off to her head office to get a second opinion. She said this wasn't typical. I left feeling uneasy. Has anyone else had this happen? Is it pretty common? How is it treated?

It is neither rare nor common. The ASV machines are used to treat CSR.
