Re: sleep apnea?

i was diagnosed with sleep apnea. I went to a doc to talk about after my friends told me that i stop breathing when i sleep. basically i would snore loudly stop breathing and then gasp for air. i do remember sometimes gasping but not often... the doctor set me up with a company called vitalaire. they gave me a machine to take home. the machine kept track of heartrate and counted the amount of episode i would have in a night. They analyzed the data sent it to my doc and he prescribed a CPAP. I only use it sparingly now it seems the apnea will go away for months at a time but will come back occasionally...
