Well, in spite of your obviously poor experience with your health care providers, there is good news here. If you have gone from a diagnosed severe sleep apnea with an AHI of 56 to a treatment AHI of 1 to 4, you would now be considered functionally normal as long as you stay on your treatment every day. That means you can rest easy during your sleep with no chance to have a stroke or heart attack according to our best current knowledge. So be happy, be relaxed. You did it. Now just keep up the good work. Arthur B. Luisi, Jr., D.M.D.
