I went to the GP and asked for a sleep study. She didn't think I needed one, she feels that all the problems are related to over weight. I am about 30 lbs more than I'd like to be, but not obese. She did give me a # to call for the sleep clinic. They did the study, called me to tell me that the report and what the report was and that was sent to my Dr. She signed her name on a paper req a CPAP theraphy, and I took that back to the sleep clinic. The gave me an auto one for a week, which determined the pressure. I returned the auto, picked up my own cpap and the tech was really good. Set the pressure for me and way to go. A week later I had to take the oxygen test to see if those levels were up and they were. 2% of the time they were 96, 42 % at 97 and 52% at 98. So the pressure remained at 10. She then sent the results on the the GP. In the meantime before the CPAP or any diagonosis for OSA I was under the care of an ENT for nasal polyps and surgery was scheduled right smack in the middle of the wait for the results of the home study. My ENT thought it best to wait until the surgery was done and the healing inside the nose. He was really good about the cpap theraphy and sugggested that anytime I need to go to a hospital to bring the machine with me. The aneathiologist(sp?) was happy to know that I mentioned the apnea to him and had the staff on guard for the recouvery room. They kept coming to me telling me to breath. I could hear them talking that I had sleep apnea so we need to watch her for a bit and remind her to breath.
That was the 1st of June and I am all good now! Sleeping all night and hopefully will start seeing some results soon.
