Since CPAP needs are primarily due to the throat geometry and not how much you weigh... there is no 'fat mode'.

The CAs are insignificant, and probably a result of disturbed sleep while waking up.

Fat mode was just a funny comment on my side not to be taken literally''''lol
throat geometry???? the question revolved around CA's and yes weight can cause an increase or decrease in pressures the change in CA's have been progressive this is not just a one night thing.

You need to first figure out if you were awake or asleep when those CA/centrals got flagged before you start worrying about them.

It's normal to have an occasional real asleep central anyway...
and the awake/arousal centrals simply don't count.

Why not use auto bipap? It's nothing more than an apap with better exhale relief options.

Your prob right , now i'm down more weight i'll be 200lbs and feeling great 80lbs now on Keto in 5 months :)
i turned down the setting to keep from blowing up, and let the machine make the adjustments
Looks like the flow rate really changes 1/2 way into the night and all hell breaks loose.
If you were me, and thank god your not ,i'm a mess most of the time, if i made a change
what would be the best options.....?
and thank you for your help '''''''
