Usually, sleep-related breathing disorders can be classified into two categories: obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA).
OSA is caused by mechanical airway obstruction, while CSA is caused by neurological dysfunction; however, Complex sleep apnea (CompSAS) occurs when previously nonexistent
central apnea (CSA) is triggered by OSA treatment.
CompSAS patients can fail to improve with ventilator therapy, causing them to continue experiencing symptoms of daytime sleepiness, poor sleep quality, fatigue, and loss of
concentration persist despite treatment.
Keep watching to learn more about CompSAS, its symptoms, prevalence, and available treatments.
