really it is difficult to me to know how much the medicine and doctors and intensive care can help and to which degree the disease of your baby is advanced, I wish the diagnosis of central apnea is not precise so the problem could be than less severe, the second possibility frequently neurointensivists omit is the tracheo-laringeal disfunction which could be present
