Complex Apnea and Ischemic Strokes


#1

I am new to this forum and regrettably I can check the block for both of these conditions. Post stroke, and thankfully fully recovered, my neurologist started excluding origins for the stroke. After two sleep studies, the second being a titration, I will soon be the owner of a DreamStation Auto SV and I chose a DreamWear Nasal Mask to match up with it. To say the least, I believe my complex apnea played a role in my stroke and I have more than a passing interest in beginning this new chapter of my life.

I would appreciate any and all information you may have on your experiences with complex apnea and use of ASV equipment, especially Repironics DreamStation and mask. Thank you!
