I Just got a called from my doc on results from my sleep study (one of those take home machines).
Going off verbally from what my doc told me, for the 6 hours I snored over 6500 times (most of the night). I stopped breathing 481 times. My O2 dipped to 77% and Heart rate between 49bpm and 143bpm.
I should be getting my machine next week. Hearing those results explains why I’m always so tired during the day and why my blood pressure is so high.
I am severely overweight at 350lbs so obviously the weight needs to come off for this to get any better.
My question is: does the machine help at all in terms of getting a good night sleep, do you wake up feeling better as opposed to without using the machine?
