"Clear airway" events

"Clear airway" events
   

I have an interpretation, whether the airsense flags these as CA or OA. They look very similar

I don't want to influence anyone else's interpretation. 

What do you think?

RE: "Clear airway" events
I would suggest to be more readable chart FLOW, zoom more in on flow chart, from my limited understandings, possibly at times general may be able to Identify difference form CA from H or O often if the CA Flow will most often go FLAT LINE more immediately, re signal from Brain identify too low CO2 or as to much Oxygen. So brain in effort to rectify will more sudden stop breathing? Or otherwise times such as "JUNK SLEEP" the Sleeper is waking, tossing, turning unaware during movements actually holding breathe, but is no Physical full or partial blockage. Where as often H or O may at times happen more slowly Partial or fully blockage airway, then except for the exceptions when may not happen as so sudden too?

RE: "Clear airway" events
Interesting the lack of interest...

My suspicion was correct. CSA, sub cheyne stokes amplitude on the Airsense.

I ran serial SPO2 with and without CPAP. Averages showed zero difference at 87%. Percentage of time under 90% was 68-87% with lows in the mid 70s.

It took forever to get through to my doc (I am looking for another provider who is responsive), but was prescribed O2 to be used with CPAP. I have not done well at all with CPAP and it did nothing so i ran the O2 without CPAP.

At 1 lpm, no CPAP. Average SPO2 went up to 97%, with 2 events totaling 2 minutes under 90%.

So CPAP is nonsense for me. I do not have OSA at all.

This will probably be my last post to this forum as the entire problem seems to be alleviated with low flow O2.
