  1. The Veteran is SC'd for TBI. A VA sleep study indicated central sleep apnea. Assuming a nexus has been medically determined between the TBI and the central sleep apnea: Questions: 1) Is central sleep apnea (CSA) a separate ratable neurologic brain disorder apart from TBI or is it rolled into the TBI rating? and, 2) While obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is considered and rated as a respiratory condition, why is that the same for CSA, which has it's etiology associated with an organic brain dysfunction?, Should CSA be considered a "chronic sleep impairment" to be rated analogous to a sleep impairment a mental health condition like PTSD, depression or an anxiety disorder etc. might cause?

  2. I'm asking for help on behalf of another veteran who just got SC'd for adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood at the 50% rate based, in part on, "chronic sleep impairment". He already has had for years non-service connected obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and uses a CPAP machine. The question is: can his non-service connected obstructive sleep apnea, (a respiratory condition), be aggravated by the "chronic sleep impairment" from his SC'd mental health condition...thereby getting his OSA SC'd?
