I am taking care of a 50 year old quadruple bypass patient that had surgery on 10/7, home on 10/12. He is having bouts of heavy sweating and heat flashes mostly when he wants to sleep at night for a longer period of time. He cannot get comfortable in any position. He is trying not to take his pain medication because he hasn't had surgery related pain and it doesn't make him sleep anymore. His temperature and BP is right where it should be. Is there something we can do to help him sleep at night?
