Central sleep apnea due to other medical disorders- not Cheyne-Stokes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Central sleep apnea is characterized by insufficient drive to breathe during sleep and is associated with major co-morbidity. There are many forms of central apnea including the classic Cheyne-Stokes breathing pattern which is common in patients with advanced heart failure. This article focuses on other forms of central sleep apnea that may occur in conjunction with various medical conditions including brainstem tumors/abnormalities such as Chiari type I malformation, chronic pain/opioid use, congenital central hypoventilation syndrome, neurodegenerative, neuroendocrine, hormonal, and neuromuscular disorders, renal failure, and stroke.
