My wife is getting used to sleeping in a quiet bedroom

I stopped using a CPAP machine to sleep a few weeks ago. After 17 years.

My O2 levels are now solid in the 90’s. And I have to admit losing 80 pounds was key. Walking ~3 miles/day at [a moderate] elevated respiration rate helps, too.

My sleep doc told me I could stop. That I had corrected everything causing my sleep apnea as far as he could determine.

Frankly, I’ve been very happy with the solid sleep I’ve enjoyed over the years with a couple of different CPAP machines over time. Wore the first one out in a decade.

Took a year before I tried this. Love the change.

Some companies that have been known to violate air quality rules were able to keep at it for years, or even decades.” (ProPublica 1/29/21) https://www.propublica.org/article/deq-louisiana-pollution
