  • CENTRAL ALVEOLAR HYPOVENTILATION AND SLEEP - TREATMENT BY INTERMITTENT POSITIVE-PRESSURE VENTILATION THROUGH NASAL MASK IN AN ADULT CHEST Guilleminault, C., Stoohs, R., Schneider, H., Podszus, T., Peter, J. H., VONWICHERT, P. 1989; 96 (5): 1210-1212

    Abstract:

    Idiopathic central alveolar hypoventilation, uncommonly seen in middle-aged adults, has often been treated by tracheostomy and assisted ventilation during sleep or by implantation of a diaphragmatic pacemaker with or without tracheostomy. We report the successful treatment of a middle-aged man by the easy application of intermittent positive-pressure ventilation through a nose mask.
