CCHS
Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome
congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) or primary alveolar hypoventilation, is a respiratory disorder that is fatal if untreated. Persons afflicted with Ondine’s curse classically suffer from respiratory arrest during sleep.

Persons who have CCHS get it at birth, or develop it due to severe neurological trauma/damage to the brainstem. The diagnosis may be delayed because of variations in the severity of the manifestations or lack of awareness in the medical community, particularly in milder cases. (Chin, 2006).[1]

This very rare and serious form of central sleep apnea involves an inborn failure of autonomic control of breathing. About 1 in 200,000 live born children have the condition. In 2006, there were only about 200 known cases worldwide. In all cases, episodes of apnea occur in sleep, but in a few patients, at the most severe end of the spectrum, apnea also occurs while awake.

A persons gender or race is not a determining factor when dealing with susceptibility to CCHS. Males and females are both affected equally and a person’s ethnicity, as of this point, has been not been coincided a variable to the disease.

How to mould and fit somnoguardAP

December 15th, 2009

The mandibular has two clear hard outer separate shell trays, which is filled up with a soft mouldable material, which molds the upper and lower teeth one at a time, and there are no limits as to how many times each tray can be molded. When you gently wear the soft SomnoGuard® AP mandibular advancement adjustable positioner medical device, into your mouth after easy custom fitting, the mandibular which molds around your teeth fits gently and holds your lower jaw forward, made after molding with the screw adjuster. If you require further adjustment, you can be readjusted as many times as you like. When the lower jaw is in that position, the upper airway is wider and eliminating the vibration and you can breathe more easily without obstruction (snoring).

December 15th, 2009

Getting prepped by Vlad, the scoring technician, at New York Hospital Cornell Medical Center Sleep Lab for a sleep study to evaluate my apnea and titrate a cpap treatment.

Special thanks to Vlad for participating in the video. When my camera battery died, he let me borrow his (he has the same camera) and changed memory cards and setup shots. And, he is natural on camera – A star is born!

Also thanks to him and the other techs at NY Hospital Sleep Center for their humanity and competence.
