Sleep Study


Nebraska Red

Recommended Posts

so, on the advice of my doctor, and the insistence of my wife, I went for an overnight sleep study last night.

 

what a horrible night.

 

first, they cover your head and shoulders in sticky goo, apply pads and stickers and then hook you up to a remote monitor. then, they put a sensor under your nostrils, hook up an oxygen monitor and say have a good night's sleep.

 

then, after what appeared to be about 5 minutes, the 2 "aides" come in and try to put a mask on me because I am having occasional sleep apnea episodes. it is at this point that I discover that I am clinically claustrophobic. no matter which mask they try, I stop breathing. the full face mask sends me into a blind panic. I now know why I had so much trouble trying to scuba dive in the past.

 

the aides give up and tell me to go back to sleep

 

SLEEP!!, these 2 people just tried to suffocate me and they want me to sleep. at 5am, I gave up, called them into the room and told them I was leaving.

 

that was a horrible night.

When the doctors insisted on covering your head and shoulders with their sticky glue, did you check they were bona fide qualified doctors ?

 

Bet the test came with a free anal probe

ffs Nebraska

 

after years of reading about how you've varnished the decking or made a BBQ or picked up the kids from soccer camp (in your pick up) or how it's snowing or it's hot....finally something that interests me

 

until it abruptly ends, with no antecedents or context

 

 

 

I feel like slapping you

it was a study , I don't get the feedback from the specialist for about a week. As for context, apparently the doctors around here seem to think that excessive snoring is bad for you, and after you hit 50 years of age, they have found another test to add to the many others they have planned out for you.

The good news is that the treatment to stop you developing respiratory and cardiac failure if you are actually having significant epsiodes of apnoea overnight is a tight fitting mask you have to wear every night.

Prostate check, another anal probe.

Colon cancer check, probe.

 

Prostate check done, colonoscopy done, echocardiogram done, sleep study done,

 

I'll find out on Thursday if he has any more tests on his list. Hopefully, no more things getting shoved up my ass.

Just the cystoscopy I would think.
