All great replies~!
If your husband has questions or concerns that are slowing him down, and wishes to talk to a hosehead about them (before a Doc), I for one would be happy to fill him in all he wants. I'm a retired long haul truck driver (yup-CPAP was on the road with me), and I was getting my DOT medical card all along (same PCP for 20+ years), and suddenly one day, my resting heartrate was through the roof and could not be lowered (that's what took me off the road for 9 weeks, til we figured it out). Better to see if OSA is an issue before damage gets done.

That wouldn't make me feel very comfortable. How did they determine what type of OSA you had, what pressure you needed, etc.? Do you look at your data in ResScan or SleepyHead? What is your pressure?
I have to say me50, I tend not to have an interest in the details, till I find I need to.
Having followed the instructions so far, I had them look at my data yesterday and thus far they say all is well with readings.
The reason I went in the first place was for headaches, which I have had a for a lifetime, with no obvious cause.
I note some on here who have had morning headaches, have had good results with CPAP giving them a normal oxygen level.
So far even with good readings my headaches persist.
I have decided to persist for a few months and see how it goes.
Thanks for your info.
