Re: Sleep Apnea causing ventricular tachycardia
For sleep apnea this severe, I would use the CPAP again, but ask for a sleeping pill to help you sleep so you aren't fighting it. Also, be sure your CPAP pressure is set high enough to keep your airway open and prevent the apneic spells. It takes sometimes a month or two to get used to the CPAP enough to sleep decently, and a sleeping pill will relax you enough to not be so bothered by the equipment. V tach is very serious, and I would ask the cardiologist to prescribe home monitoring for your heart with an alarm which will ring and awaken you after 3 or 4 consecutive PVC's, as these are caused by lack of oxygen, and they should stop as soon as you start breathing. You can also be on nightime oxygen hooked up to the CPAP to help prevent the low oxygen levels putting you into V Tach. I am on CPAP with oxygen, so I understand how difficult it is to get used to, and find a system that works for you.
