Dear Sleep Doctors

This week our question comes from Jerry in Pulaski, TN. He writes:

Dear Sleep Doctors,

I was diagnosed several years ago as having sleep apnea and I submitted to using the CPAP equipment. But I could not tolerate the noise that it made because together with the tinnitus noise that continually plagues me, the combined noise level was unbearable. My question is ... has the latest SA equipment been improved to reduce the noise level experienced?

Sincerely, Jerry
