Sleep Study

I got the results from the test. Went to the hospital to spend the night connected to more wires than I ever imagined. Slept fitfully as usual. Results would take weeks and the weeks are over.

 They are ordering me a CPAP because when I sleep on my side I quit breathing an average of 8 times an hour. They order CPAP for anything over 4-5 times an hour so it is moderate. However when I sleep on my back it increases to an average of 17 times an hour that I stop breathing.

Medical supply company should contact me in a couple of weeks when machine is ready. I have another appointment with the sleep doctor in September.

Did you know that Sleep Apnea is the leading cause of atrial fib?
