  1. I am watching this lying in bed avoiding sleeping. Do I win a prize?

  2. Hi Dr. Sleep, I have OSA and had Catheter Ablations for AFib, now I’m throwing lots of Central Sleep Apneas. I was at 10/5, so I went to 9/4 (still 5.9 Central’s per hour), so now I’m going to 8/4. All of this is on a BiPap. I hope I don’t need an ASV. Before my Catheter Ablations my A/H Index was under 2 per hour. So it’s not like I just need to “adjust” to the Bipap and Central’s will go away. They’re a new phenomenon. So now I’m going to lower my Bipap to 8/4 and see how I do. Have you ever heard of this happening?

  3. You can’t control sleep so quit the meds – anxiety makes sleep difficulty so get up and do something you like and your brain will then allow you to sleep
