There are several types of Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) and treatment for each can often differ depending on the cause of your CSA. Read below to help you to understand which treatment is best for you.
Adaptive Servo Ventilation, using ResMed’s PaceWave therapy, is an effective treatment for many forms of Central Sleep Apnea (CSA).1 Pressurised air is sent from a therapy device through air tubing and a mask to the upper airway.
If you have high-altitude Central Sleep Apnea (CSA), descending to a lower altitude should make your CSA symptoms disappear.2
In a similar fashion, drug-induced Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) by painkillers can also disappear when you change or eliminate your medication.
Untreated Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) can lead to a host of complications and serious health risks. Finding the right treatment for you can diminish associated risks.
