RE: Struggling with Sleep Apnea/Narcolepsy/Dysautonomia
What can you tell us about the failure of CPAP for him? Could he sleep with the CPAP? Did he wear it all night long?

In what specific way did CPAP fail?

What specific CPAP machines did he use? What masks?

Did you check the data from the CPAP machine to see what his AHI was at home? What pressure range, etc.?

BTW, Zeo is apparently currently in some form of bankruptcy or something similar, so consider that if you're making purchases or want to make any.

Where are you located? USA, elsewhere, large city, etc.?

Get the free SleepyHead software here.
Useful links.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Oh great.
One of the few machines I have that works well and they go bust?
