We will also answer one of our listener submitted emails. This one is from Harvey:
Dear Sleep Doctors,
Do you take care of nasal problems that get in the way of proper compliance
of CPAP equipment? I use a CPAP unit and I stopped using it due to nasal
restriction,  but I don’t have any known allergies. I would like a second
opinion as I went to a surgeon and he wants to do a nasal operation.
