Pronounce it just like the tail end of diarrhoea.
Basically, it means that you stop breathing when you're sleeping. Usually your breathing sort of catches up with you, but in medium to severe cases this means that you do not get enough oxygen during the night. People with sleep apnoe are often dull, tired and headachy during the day time.
I do not know why they linked sleep apnoe to Ch this time, but I remember an article, a long while back, about a mechanism that makes you change the nostril you breathe through when you sleep. The research said: change-over every 2 hours. This sounds very familiar to me and maybe to others with clockwork nightly CH.
Then there is the oxygen angle in sleep apnoe. Many of us abort CH attacks with O2.
I would like to see the article you refer to, though. Any chance of anubody digging it up?
PF minutes and may they stretch into hours
