Lungs Breathing Patterns; Are they High Yield?

Are these abnormal patterns of breathing- Apneustic, Cheyne Stokes, Biot's Breathing tested in Step 1.. They are given only in the kaplan lectures (Resp Phys) where they arent explained very well. Neither did i find them in FA nor in Uworld ques of Resp Phys ( was hoping to find some ques of them to better my understanding of them,, but didnt see any )

They used to be quiet important during MBBS, if they arent High Yield for step 1 then better i dont bang my head over them..
If any of u guys happened to see them under high yield topics then please share

keep studying Hard!!
