The system's monitoring technology and signal analysis software are so advanced that it can automatically detect and classify apneas or hypopneas, Cheyne-Stokes respiration, sighs, and coughs, and correlate these with cardiac or other parameters -- all outside of the laboratory or clinical setting.
Finally, in a recent study, we aimed to evaluate acute effects of adaptive servo ventilation (ASV) on Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR) and neurohormones in the patients with HE and showed that one night ASV treatment improves CSR, partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood, and oxygen saturation and provides significant reductions in plasma catecholamines and NT-proBNP levels in the patients with HF and CSR (6).
