At my latest appointment, I apparently failed the spirometer test when flat on my back, so the neuro talked to me about a Bi-Pap. I'm not aware that I have breathing difficulty. I'm a real klutz when it comes to trying to use the spirometer. I'm unable to make a seal on the thing, as whatever controls my lips doesn't work right. Also, I can't understand how one is supposed to blow out as hard and fast as possible and then continue to blow slowly for at least six seconds without taking another breath. Seems like it has to be one or the other.
I'm going to suffer through a night at a sleep clinic where other methods of measuring oxygen/CO2 levels are employed. If I have to start using a Bi-Pap, so be it. I'm skeptical because my blood oxygen and CO2 levels are very good. Comments, anyone?
