"That is a normal CA reading. Insignificant events such as swallowing, biting, or breath pauses can be caounted as CAs or hypops ffrom time to time. As long as your AHI is under 5 I would not worry."

"Since my pressure was set at 16, I have hardly had any OA's, and yes, the AHI has fallen to below 5. I was just wondering why the CA and HA's do not seem to be affected whatsoever by CPAP. I must admit that they have reduced slightly when…"

"I'm not a doctor, and I'm sure one will be along to help! However it's my understanding that normal CPAP isn't particularly effective on central apnoea events. BiPAP and ASV are used for helping treat them."
