I had sleep apena as a child what is the odds that my 21 month old may have or will have it?

Depends on type: There are 2 main types of sleep apnea - central where your brain forgets to tell you to breath while you sleep, and obstructive, where the airway structures are more "floppy" and tend to block the airflow while you sleep as you relax those muscles.

If pulse ox is low at night- how to tell if it's sleep apena or copd? Is there a sure fire way to tell the cause? Sleep study showed very few.

I have COPD and a recent blood test showed my hematocrit of 55. Oxsymmetry test was ok. What could be the cause? Sleep apnea?       Thanks

Ask your doctor: Your hematocrit is slightly high but it is not unexpected if you have COPD which causes some impairment of oxygenation of the blood. So your body is making more red cells in order to compensate for it. Ask you doctor if the other blood cells are all normal because similar changes can occur in Polycythemia Vera(P.Vera) which is a blood disease where there is excessive production of red cells &wbc, ...Read more
