S/T mode is BiPap mode with a breathing rate. Ask your doctor first for a breathing rate per minute.

I believe S/T mode will eliminate the central apneas.

Doubtful.

ST mode does more to *cause* centrals than anything else.

Hmm.

I wonder if there's another mode that might do the job a little better...
