Re: For Axe

Yes, Cass, you are correct. Sleep apnea puts a strain on the heart. That is what my husband's pulmonary specialist told us. My husband prefers the full face mask and the only trouble he had with it in the beginning was getting the mask not to leak air. My husband also has COPD. Both of his problems are now under control. Don't let your husband give up. Tell him to keep trying because he will be a new man with the CPAP. My husband is so cheerful when he awakes in the morning after his restful sleep with the CPAP that he actually annoys me sometimes. (I am not a morning person)
