Central Sleep Apnea, Any Ideas?

December 11th, 2011

Since 10 to 15% of people with Apnea have Central Sleep Apnea, I’m looking for like-diagnosed people who are willing to share their stories, cures, what they are doing with their Doctors, if anything. I was diagnosed in 2004 and have never been told it’s a not a curable condition, but surfing the internet tells me about "diaphramatic pacing" and the ability to get well. So far, Doctors have about killed me (no offence), and I find aerobic exercise to be of the most benefit. What do you find?

But it depends on an individual and severity of symptoms. If symptoms are present, treatment is warranted. The decision to treat should be made on an individual basis.

I have heard of several different treatments aimed at central sleep apnea and include positive airway pressure, adaptive servo ventilation (ASV), oxygen, added dead space, and overdrive atrial pacing.
It also depends on age and condition of lungs etc.
