SCRMC HealthBreak | South Central Sleep Center – CPAP  

Posted on July 30, 2018

AJ Reynolds spent much of his life exhausted and did not know why. He slept eight hours a night and still woke up tired. After falling asleep while riding a lawnmower, he decided to visit John Wallace, the medical director at the South Central Sleep Center in Laurel, and was found to have obstructive sleep apnea and was treated with CPAP. Sleep apnea patients’ sleep can be interrupted many times through a night, causing sleep loss and stress on the heart. CPAP eliminates the sleep apnea by opening the patients’ airways, stopping their snoring, and allowing them to get a good night’s rest. AJ Reynolds has slept with a CPAP machine every night since the study in 1997 and has not struggled with sleep apnea since.
