I went from a handful of hypopnea to basically no apneas and hypopnea but ahi of 15-25 nightly from Clear Airway Apneas.

Central = Clear Airway in Dreamstation/Mapper

thank you for the notification  of a home sleep study for Centrals. I hope I can get the home study  one for centrals but I think my dr. wants the lab to do it for some reason.

STB123, I hope you will start your own thread and work with us.  CPAP induced complex apnea is more common than you know, and the solution is a bilevel ASV.  Your BiPAP is made to resolve obstructive sleep apnea, and is of little use in treating complex apnea, but certain settings will make your symptoms much worse.  You will need to fail at BiPAP before being admitted to a trial for ASV.  It may be a frustrating experience, but you will eventually be treated to near zero events.  Hope you will start a new thread...we've seen this many times before.
