Abstract

Three patients, two suffering from congenital central hypoventilation syndrome and one from late onset central hypoventilation are reported. In both conditions the diagnosis was based on exclusion of hypoventilation derived from either peripheral or central but not primitive causes and on polysomnographic evaluation. The three patients presented various degrees of hypoventilation severity requiring different respiratory supports. The difficulties encountered in arranging rapid and efficient discharge at home are discussed.
