RE: previously diagnosed, expertise requested for data interpretation
The problem with BPAP is it can make the centrals worse. I take it that your EPR is reduced to try to resolve the centrals, and a few OA are coming through, but most events are central. If so, that suggests complex apnea, and the treatment for that is ASV, which can provide enough pressure support on a breath by breath basis to cause a breath during an open airway apnea, or to increase respiratory volume during hypopnea. Bilevel without a backup rate, waits for you to spontaneously take a breath, and it follows with pressure to make it easier to breath. That works great, but anyone that develops central apnea with pressure support or EPR needs the backup function.

RE: previously diagnosed, expertise requested for data interpretation
thank you for the link to resmed video that was helpful

new headgear last night (initial data with new headgear), AHI is improved from ~4-5 to ~2-3 but CA events are still consistent in frequency and number, Large Leaks are now clustered and higher in number, mask pressure appears more erratic and higher max than all previous data, hypopnea is unchanged, flow rate waveforms appear to be mixed but smoother or more rounded but mixed with thanks for your expertise
