Do the long term consequences of a gastric sleeve outweigh the benefits to my high bmi, high blood pressure, bulging disc and obstructive sleep apnea?
Have your patients been able to lower blood pressure using the resperate device? I'm 6 mo. In on sleep apnea treatment - hoping to see BP improvement.
Yes over time: Sleep apnea does contribute to harder to control blood pressure. The longer you're using your CPAP there usually is improvement in terms of blood pressure control. Weight loss is also a contributing factor that helps since as you sleep better, you're more energetic, less dependent on natural Adrenalin to keep you going and less likely to crave cards and sugars for a quick energy boost. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is sleep apnea related to COPD and/or asthma? What are some effective treatments for someone with sleep apnea and COPD - cpap, bipap, pillows?
Completed sleep study and have mild sleep apnea. Oxygen recorded during sleep 86%. Will a CPAP machine help ease my high rate of PVCs (20,000) a day.
CPAP and PVCs: Hi Derrick, there is data that demonstrates that CPAP usage does decrease the number of PVCs, but this was only in patients diagnosed with heart failure. Keep in mind that regular CPAP usage should improve any current symptoms related to sleep apnea such as day time fatigue and will also prevent long term complications such as pulmonary hypertension. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have pH due to severe central and obstructive sleep apnea. I use an asv machine and oxygen 4l. What other treatment(s) are available?
Heart OK?: Your question seem to suggest at least two things that need to be addressed. Central sleep apnea is usually caused by heart problems. Check with a cardiologist about this matter. The fact that you need additional oxygen suggests that obesity might be a significant modifiable factor. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

This is typically done at a sleep center, and evaluated by an md who is a sleep specialist. Sometimes this data indicates that you stop breathing at night.

What allergy masks are effective and comfortable for sleeping? Being reusable, machine washable and not requiring replacement filters would a big plus
Too good to be true: There is no mask that can be comfortable and effective yet washable. Sometimes a HEPA filter in the bedroom right above your head may help. The best approach is avoidance especially if you are allergic to dust mites. Consult an allergist. ...Read more
Is "Provent Therapy" from sleep apnea as effective as a CPAP or at least 50% effective, compared to CPAP?
Provent therapy: Cpap is the gold standard and the most effective. Pro ent can help in mild apnea but really is not that effective for moderate to severe apnea. Maybe you should contact an ent who does sleep apnea surgery if you are not tolerating cpap. Good luck and feel better! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Patient 89yr old on Dopermine and Tramadol for low blood pressure in hospital a good with COPD
And adding a third thinner Coagulation forAfib ok?
Use HealthTap Prime: We won't be able to get to an answer on this complicated case in 400 characters. In general, dopamine is used to temporarily increase blood pressure when it becomes too low. The pain medication Tramadol, to my understanding, lowers blood pressure (does not raise it) - that may be the cause of the low BP. I'm not sure why 3 anticoagulants are needed for Afib (usually 1 suffices). Use HealthTap Prim ...Read more
