I'm not sure if my sleep apnea is working or not as I only seem to get my machine checked out once a year. I don't know if I should check out my SD card in my machine, to see how things are going?

Page for STUART G. a happily married parent of two young boys.

 Under the care of my Hospitals Lung Finction Clinic. Ive had problems with leaks and noise from my machine. Howrver I now think it's as good as I can get it. Recently been told a section 47 meeting needed to be held because my sleep apnea put my boys at risk? I do not believe this is true. I came back to this forum after several years to see if anyone else had experienced this? It seems I am the first....
