Analysis of cardiopulmonary coupling to assess adaptive servo-ventilation success in complex sleep apnea management

Abstract

Adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV) is used to treat complex sleep apnea syndrome (CompSAS), but with variable success. Factors influencing success are poorly understood. ASV devices determine their output based upon characteristics of a given breath and on proprietary algorithms that assume a periodic breathing pattern. Periodic breathing patterns produce… (More)
