People suffer from all sorts of injuries and illnesses everyday. Often these cause cheyne-stokes respiration's and yes, the problems which caused the respiratory condition can be fixed. Head injuries is a prime example of an injury that can cause cheyne-stoke restorations and again head injuries can and have been fixed prior to death. SO, fix the cause you fix the respiratory issues.

Cheyne-Stokes respiration is an abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by breathing becoming shallower until it stops for a while and then breathing starts again and rapidly crescendos to a peak before decaying away again. The pattern repeats, with one cycle typically lasting about 1 minute. It is an oscillation of ventilation between apnea and hyperapnea with a crescendo-decrescendo pattern, and is associated with changing serum partial pressures of oxygen and carbon dioxide.Cheyne-Stokes Respiration

What is Cheyne-Stokes respiration?

It is when apnea alternates with periods of rapid, heavy breathing (hyperapnea).This type of breathing is found in patients who have had heart failure, strokes, and brain injuries or tumors. It can also be a symptom of carbon monoxide poisoning, and can be found in some otherwise healthy patients who have been in high altitudes. Hospice care workers use Cheyne-Stokes respiration as an indication that death is approaching - terminally ill patients have reported that there is no discomfort to this condition (though it can be alarming to onlookers).
