Are there any risks with a CPAP machine? My father was diagnosed with OSA & says the machine gives him chest pains & dizziness. Is this normal?

In brief: Mgt

Sometimes this does occur with CPAP.
i would advise checking with your home company to see if less pressure can be used, and whether the mask fit is too tight. A follow up appt is indicated to rule out any other causes.

In brief: Adjustment

Discuss CPAP adjustment with sleep doc.
Other options are dental devices to reposition jaw forward or sleep apnea surgery.
