Brief Answer:
There is no relation between CPAP and hemolytic anemia

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

CPAP has nothing to do with autoimmune hemolytic anemia. It won't make it any worse (or better). CPAP may only cause local problems attributed to the pressure of the device on the face or the pressure of the air.

I hope I've answered your question. You can contact me again, if you'd like more information or clarifications.

Kind Regards!
