I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and I also was having problems with my heart. After 5 sleep studies they finally got me sleeping very well and a normal heart rhythem.
On my 2nd sleep study it was found that I was having 120 apnea eppisodes an hour (very severe) and I was also prescribed with a c-pap machine at first running at a pressure of 18 and then 20. My apnea episodes went down to opprox. 60 to 80 per hour (a definite improvement). But It was not until I was put on a Bi-pap machine running at pressures of 26 on insparation and 21 on exhelation and 1 litre of oxygen\hour that everything got close to normal.
These pressures are extremely high but the pay off is worth it. For the first time in 15 years I finaly get a good restfull nights sleep, and a normal heart rhythem.
