  • I use mine all the time, even when camping. I was ignorant about it affecting your heart. And I've had a heart attack.

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was going to blame you.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
    The things that come to those that wait will be the scraggly crappy junk left by those that got there first.

      as best I understand what happened with me was a few years back I had a case of the flu .... the flu virus interacted with the Sleep Apnea (don't understand how) and the combo caused the heart problem .... once that link was made, it can kick back in at most any time

      • I too was ignorant to the fact about the heart condition. I use my cpap machine every time I sleep. My diabetes doesn't help either. Diabetes can reak on havoc on several systems in the body but apnea scares me the most. You don't know if you're going to wake up or not.

          • update ....

            as can be seen from this thread started back in 2009, I've been dealing with Atrial Fibrillation (AF or AFib) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atrial_fibrillation and Atrial flutter (AFL) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atrial_flutter .... over time I

            1 was placed on various meds which worked to various degrees over various periods of time

            2. under went Electrical cardioversion which involves the restoration of normal heart rhythm through the application of a DC electrical shock which didn't last a week

            3 and most recently radio frequency ablation. http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Condit...p#.WNrf7sm1vIU

            the radio frequency ablation took place at Duke University Hospital on Dec 28th .... last week in a post surgery examination it was determined that (so far) all's good .... today in an appointment with my long time cardiologist, that determination was confirmed and I'm now back on a yearly appointment schedule .... in July I have another appointment at Duke and if things go as they are now, I'll be released .... sure hope that is the case

                  • It amazing talking to folks who suffer from AFib, so many folks here who are in my age bracket (70+) seem to suffer from it and have gone through what JBar has, but the last procedure is new to me. Now that Jim mentioned it many seem to suffer from Sleep Apnea and use C Pap machines.
                    Hope everything goes the right way Jim.

                      • Thanks everyone for the good thoughts. We were both very happy with the results of the last two doctor's visits.
