You might want to talk to your sleep doctor and get you cpap checked to make sure your AHI is still good.
I have been considering this. I did mentioned it to my cardiologist but he didn't think there was any connection.
I didn't think with sleep apnoea that your heart actually stopped but just your breathing/airway becomes blocked (which I assumed would temporarily slow your heart) and then your brain kicks in and wakes you.
No, sleep apnea can cause your heart to do weird things. I have been having problems with apnea and PVCs, but it can also cause tachycardia, bradycardia and your heart stopping for a couple of seconds. I would definitely check to make sure you are still sleeping well.
I will, thanks for the advice.
There are a few different electrical reasons to explain a "pause". And I didn't think 3 seconds was a big deal. There's also something called "escape rhythm" to help back-up pacing in the absence of a sinus beat ( a P wave).
The electrical system is complex, so I would ask what caused the pause. Each of the different causes have different implications.
