    Dear Sir or Madam

    I work as a Business Developer in Sweden and just got involved in an innovation project about monitoring sleep apnea in home environment using mobile phones.

    Do you know if there are any mobile app that really works? That has evidence by comparing against “Laboratory-based polysomnography gold standard to measure sleep objectively”.

    I would be very grateful for your opinion about this. I read the article on your homepage bur understood it as that more development and testing is needed.

    Yours faithfully

    How is it legal, ethical or moral for a website supported by licensed physicians in the United States to give dangerous, inaccurate medical advice to patients in order to make a profit by selling a DANGEROUS device that “sanitizes” CPAP machines with a gas that is TOXIC for humans & animals to breathe?

    I have 2 sleep apnea maching that both work but are no longer used. Are they recylable for someone who can’t afford one?

    My mother was seen by a pulmonologist after she had a sleep study. My mother was told during that sleep study she stopped breathing 91 times. They have stressed to her that she needed a machine. Well today she found out that since she does not have insurance she can get the machine and now she is scared. Are there any programs out there for people who need it and can not afford one? Can she get a used machine anywhere that maybe people have donated? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
