I always concentrate on my heart and not my lungs

Here is what the pulmonary specialist says is wrong with me.

1. Organic Idiopathic Sleep-related Nonobstructive Alveolar Hypoventilation - apparently this caused my heart failure

2. Health Maintenance - I am too fat

3. Restrictive Lung Disease - I think this is from breathing too much paper dust and sand and animal dander in the dog business

4. Obstructive Sleep Apnea - My blood oxygen levels drop into the 40% levels without my bipap machine. They drop into the 80's with it. Levels below 90% cause brain damage.
