Bob, to be honest, I cannot answer these questions. Lee had a very brief and hurried meeting with his doc about 2 weeks after the study was done. I was not present at that meeting, so I requested a copy of the sleep report. This is where I got the info. We are having a meeting with the doc next month, and I have LOTS of questions. As far as the 33 apneas--it's 33 "arousals", i.e. awakenings, NOT apneas. The report said there were no real apneas. And so I question why it says "REM specific sleep apnea". The report said he had a total of 59 minutes of REM sleep, and there was nothing indicating a different in the number of awakenings during REM vs. other sleep time. There was also mention of a long REM latency period, whatever that means. So, when I get some answers, I'll be happy to share them. Perhaps I should not have even mentioned it in my post, not having more info than I have. For this I apologize. Joy
