My Sleep Apnoea – part 3

2 Sep

So today I had to return to the Sleep Clinic, to find out the results from the CPAP machine.  This machine had a microchip in it, which recorded how many times I stop breathing during the night, for the past 7 nights.

The nurse connected the microchip from the CPAP machine to her computer, and it wasn’t good news I’m afraid.  I still have to use the dratted thing.  During the past week, I stopped breathing, on average, 14 times an hour.  That’s approximately every 4 minutes.

It looks like Darth, my hubby’s nickname for my CPAP mask, and I will continue to be bed buddy’s for at least another year.

Well, that’s me back from the Sleep Clinic.  The nurse weighed me, and confirmed that I’ve lost around about a stone since I was last there, in September 2010.

She has given me another CPAP machine, which has a microchip in it.  It will record how many times I stop breathing during the night.  So, I have to use this machine for a week, and take it back next Friday, when the nurse will put the microchip in her computer, and we’ll find out the results.
