CHEYNE-STOKES RESPIRATION ISALTERNATING HYPERPNOEA AND APNOEA. PERIODIC RESPIRATION. WHERE IT OCCURS:- IN PRIMARY NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER THIS POINTS TO BILATERALCEREBRAL DYSFUNCTION, USUALLY DEEP IN THE HEMISPHERE OR IN THE UPPER BRAINSTEM., AND IS A SIGN OF INCIPIENT CONING. THIS RESPIRATORY PATTERN ALSO OCCURS IN METABOLIC COMAS, IF THERE IS CARBON DIOXIDE RETNTION FROM PULMONARY DISEASE., WITH CHRONIC HYPOXIA AT HIGH ALTITUDE ABOVE 3500M. AND THIS MAY HAPPEN IN NORMAL PEOPLE DURING SLEEP.
