Central Apnea 9 month old

Hi! I'm new to this site but I'm hoping for some tips and support. I have a 9 month old girl who has had central apnea since birth and therefore been on oxygen while sleeping since. As she's getting older and able to move it's getting very difficult to keep the cannula on her. When she wakes (and even in her sleep she pulls it out). Any ideas how to keep it on? Anyone had experience with central apnea? When did it resolve? We do sleep studies about every 3 to 4 months and it's getting better but she still has about 11 episodes a hour. We test again at 13 months.
