Default Sleep Apnea and C-Pap machines.......

Anyone have any experience with this? It seems to be more common than I thought. Some patients bring their C-Pap machines in to the hospital with them so they can get restful sleep.

Scubie and I both have one. Without it, Scubie will stop breathing for 1 1/2 minutes, or more, at a time while sleeping. I'm not that bad, but during my initial sleep study my oxygen saturation stats went down to like 70 something percent.

I have one too. I have sleep apnea and didn't realize how bad I was sleeping until I did a sleep study and got a cpap machine. Although they can be somewhat of a pain to sleep with, especially if you turn alot, they are worth it. It took about 2 weeks of sleeping with it to realize how rested I was.

I have one aswell. I've had sleep apnea since I was a little kid. It's helped a great deal, but I still do not get great sleep, because when I sleep my legs/feet move constantly due to several back injuries.
