RE: Newbie With A Few Questions
Grim Jim,

You may still want have the AFib checked. I have OSA and have AFib as well and sometimes just feel drained. Been on CPAP for a week and a half and am feeling better, getting the best sleep of my life. Blood Pressure coming down, sleeping all night, polycythemia (high red blood cells) test tomorrow, hoping for some good news there. I don't know how they will treat the AFib yet, but currently taking beta blockers for it. Stay with it Jim and make sure you get the treatment you need to take care of yourself, I'm sure other people depend on you in your life.

RE: Newbie With A Few Questions
I have been on C Pap for 3 weeks & I also have a irregular heart beat & have been seen by cardiologist & had EkG & ultrasound of the heart. I am now using the 30 day monitor to record my heart, I've had it 3 weeks & so far, so good the cardiologist says. Irregular heart beat will cure with C Pap treatment from what my sleep specialist says
