Smile CPAP and my Heart
I went to the heart doctor today. He had an student/new doctor with him. My doctor started questioning me and ask about my cpap use. At the end of this part of his exam he turned to the new doctor and ask him did he get all of that. I am a little slow but I understood that he was pointing out the good effects of my cpap and the recent changes to the pressures. I felt better and his exam showed that I was improved. He ask that I bring him some of the Sleepyhead charts as he wanted to know more about what it could do. I wish my sleep doctor was as interested.

Just my personal opinion. My posts are not medical advice or a statement of fact. Please consult a qualified physician or other qualified medical personnel. Please comply with all applicable laws, codes, regulations, and protocols.

it'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy
