Sleep apnea is notorious for causing heart problems and is, according to my cardiologist, responsible for my afib. Make sure you speak up if you have problems or it doesn't seem to be working properly. I use the Nasal-Aire II, which is an oxygen-like nasal set up, and does not require a mask on my face. A humidifier is important. Making sure you use it every nite is important. Good luck -- let us know how you're doing.
