Obstructed Sleep Apnea

Missy's sleep study is complete.

The kid has 5 episodes per hour of obstructed breathing. Her REM sleep is poor, amongst other things. Her oxygen levels were pretty good but the co2 was high.

C-pap, here we come!!

You can only imagine how good it is to have hope that some of her grumpiness is related to her poor sleep and that we can do something to help her.

No restless leg syndrome, it's all about the obstructed breathing.

YESS!!

Wow! Seems that this could impact Missy in lots of ways. Praying she'll be able to get adjusted to the C-pap quickly and that she'll feel better in the process...melinda

What's a c-pap?

it's a machine that helps them breath... keeps the air ways open. It has a mask, etc...
