I'm waiting for an evaluaton to see if I have apnea. During a recent hospiltisation after an angioplasty, my daughter, who was watching me while I recoverd, noticed tha every few minutes, my respiration monitor flagged "APNEA". It was brief enough that the nurses dind't respond.

DW has said for seeral years that I suffer from apnea, but since I had never wakened feeling starve of oxygen, I didbn't accept her diuagnosis.

I will be going to our local hospital's sleep clinic in a couple of weeks to determine if I have a problem. If I do, I sure hope the CPAP machine doesn't disturb our sleep. I haven't had any "Oh my goodness I'm dying from lack of oxygen" incidents. DW reckons I have apnea because I snore so viloently that I ratttle the windows next door!

Judging from your symptom descriptions and speaking from personal experience, I predict that you are going to diagnosed with sleep apnea. The CPAP machines do create a certain amount of noise, but compared with your snoring, the DW probably won't even notice the machine running !!

She may not, but you will. They do take some getting used to...
