Thanks for listening to my o2 Tara talk!
You’re going to love this information-packed download about #NighttimeBreathingProblems!
It will help you know if all things you’re dealing with–ranging from tiredness and other physical complaints to emotional complaints like anxiety and depression–have a real, treatable cause.
And if you want to help other people learn about nighttime breathing problems, this download is perfect for you.
The infographics and questionnaires make it easy to see the signs of #NighttimeBreathingProblems. And with 50% of men, 25% of women, and 11% of children affected, it’s important to know. Why? Because if you can uncover the cause, you are on your way to a solution!
Get all the good things I described in the talk here:
Maybe you already have a sneaking suspicion–or more!–but you’re not ready to go take on the expense, time, and hassle of an overnight sleep study. Well, you have options!
There are lots of ways to monitor your sleep at home. Two sleep monitors that I have experience with are pictured below.
Both monitors give you your o2 level (via “pulse oximetry”) like the $25 gadgets you can find, but these monitors are more sophisticated and give you much more: heart rate and movement. And it’s heart rate and movement info that helps you uncover if you have a nighttime breathing problem that disrupts your sleep but doesn’t make your o2 levels drop.
The first model you see is under $100, but it only works on certain operating systems. And you need a cable attachment to upload your data to your computer. If that’s OK for you, this unit may do the trick for you! (Click image for details.)
This next model is close to $200, but it uses Bluetooth technology to upload your data to your device. Just open the app, turn on the unit, and within seconds a nicely detailed graph of your night of sleep pops up. For me, the extra cost for this unit was well worth it because I use it most nights to monitor someone’s sleep(!) and the ease of uploading the data has saved me so much time.

The bottom line: Go with the cheaper unit if saving money is more important than saving time. But if you’ll use it often and want a seamless user experience, investing the extra dollars may be worth it!
