Listener Questions

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.

Dear Sleep Doctors,
My wife and I are not sleeping together any more. She wakens at night with her heart racing, labored breathing, and in a severely anxious state. Is this a sleep disorder, or is there something wrong with her head?

Tune in to hear Dennis, Bill, and Brian answer these questions!
