There is an excellent article on Sleep Apnea in the November issue of Men’s Health. In this article, an apparently fit author breaks all stereotypes and finds that he is apneic, having “27.7 suffocation episodes per hour.” This is called moderate (bordering on severe) apnea with an AHI (apnea index) of 27.7. The oxygen in his blood “fell to levels typical of climbers at a Mount Everest base camp.” We call this oxygen desaturation. There are a number of ways that these numbers can be reduced. This article describes the author’s journey into learning and treating his apnea.
You can find this article at the Men’s Health site:
Certainly worthwhile to read this article.
