I do know that once I take the mask off that I can recover from fast breathing much easier. Maybe this is from stopping the dreaming or maybe its from taking the mask off so that I can get enough fresh air. I am not sure on that. I will assume that I have had a central apnea and that air deficit results in faster breathing as CO2 levels in the blood increase. There is probably a dream factor that is occuring too that accelerates the breathing and heart rate(air consumption). I am usually in some craze dream and starting to get panicked I guess. The dream is one of those crazy chase type dreams that make you feel like your running or chasing something or being chased. You get the fast breathing and fast heart rates. It has not transformed into a death dream yet so I will assume that O2 is not too low. Usually when O2 gets too low the death dream will freak me out and kick me out of dreaming.
Post your experiences with fast breathing and crazy dreams and do you have difficulty getting enough air while using cpap/bipap. Also let me know anything about my idea of the breathing set up of cpap/bipap and the breathing limitions imposed by the mask.
