This is my first post and I will try to keep it short. I started using CPAP machine about a year and half back. My incidences were on the pretty high (about 35 per hour) and after using it for all this time, cant go without it for a good night sleep. I feel refreshed, don't sigh all day long after bad sleep.
But the question is more about my dad. He has a heart condition (74 years old), has a pacemaker (rate responsive) implanted and I see the same symptoms that i had myself. Always tired, snores real heavy all night and would wake up sometimes suddenly. With his myriad heart problems, i feel that using CPAP and having a good night sleep on a consistent basis, would help his health and well being lot. I have tried to encourage him over the phone (he lives abroad) to go do a sleep study and get a CPAP but he (and mom) told me that they are worried of him using any machine because of his pacemaker.
question 1- Is there any kind of interference of CPAP machine with pacemakers?
question 2- Anyone on the board fit the profile of using CPAP and also being on pacemaker?
any kind of advice or pointing towards any website would be real helpful.
Thanks in advance for your patience reading my long post.
