This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

I am sorry you have been found to have sleep apnea and asthma

Dr. David :

sleep apnea can keep you from breathing properly at night time.

Dr. David :

you might need to be treated with a CPAP machine to help you breath better at night.

Dr. David :

also some patients need a tongue tethering surgery to help hold the tongue down so breathing can be easier when you sleep.

Dr. David :

are you on CPAP treatment?

Customer:

Not on cpap treatment
