Hi Leboyf. Welcome to the forum.

Cheyne Stokes respiration is defined as a waxing and waning breathing pattern with a central apnea after every cycle. It also needs to go on for an extended period (I have seen 45 minutes mentioned) before there is any clinical significance. As CSR can be (not always) associated with congestive heart failure, I have to ask if your heart-health is good? From what I can see on the chart this is not CSR, and your machine would flag it if it was.

I suspect you're seeing a form of sleep-wake junk: a period of irregular breathing as you move between sleep and being fully awake. Generally this can be ignored.
