Sleep Apnea Information CPAP Machines

First, CPAP is not what people need.  Most people need AutoPAP.  This is a machine
that adjusts pressure as you sleep.  It allows for both inhalation and exhalation.  Breathing
out against a constant pressure can make normal breathing difficult.
 
Second, the there are three different pressure settings on an AutoPAP machine that the
user is going to need to experiment with: 1) minimum pressure 2) maximum pressure and
3) the ramp-up pressure and time of the ramp-up.  Most machines have adjustments for

National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners

Hello Drivers;  New Rules!  Starting in March of 2014 the rules have changed about who can and cannot do the medical exam for commercial drivers.  Only physicians who have been trained, tested and certified can do the medical exam for you.  If you go to anyone else they will reject the medical card.  The list of approved physicians is on the government website dot.gov under National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners.  You can look it up by state.  You will have to fax, mail or take a copy of the medical examiners card to the DMV.  If you fail to do so they take your first born.  Well maybe not your first born but they can and will take away your right to drive a commercial vehicle. As if there is not enough stress with driving a commercial vehicle they have to add more.  Take good care of yourselves and do not believe everything you hear or read on the radio or the internet!  

Low cost testing for Sleep Apnea

Hello Drivers: I have finally found an organization that has low cost sleep apnea testing and it is approved by the DOT.  You can do the test in your truck or at home so no need to go into a clinic and stay over night.  The cost for the sleep apnea screening is $200.00.  The other clinics charge $1,200.00 and up so this is great news.  I am still looking for low cost, good quality C-Pap machines.  I will let you all know when I find them.  I found some for $1,300.
