Kath Hope replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"I don't think those symptoms are specific to central sleep apnoea.  Your app should tell you if those apnoeas are obstructive or  centrals.  It sometimes says 'CA.'  Sometimes when people first wake it takes a…"
