You'll note I am listed as an Advisory Member. I am honored to be listed as such. See the fine print - Advisory Members as a group provide advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies. Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment.
When we are awake, we are breathing a lot differently than when asleep. I'd not be surprised to see it increase while I'm awake. It doesn't need an event to do so. Just a detection of narrowing of airway or some other something. Or aliens.
Also, Opal, try to refrain from playing with the font sizes. I know it is fun to do but it can make reading your posts difficult for some of the old farts around here. Or us young ones who need their eyeglass prescription changed.
