My thoughts in response to this link:
This is why a sleep technologist’s job is very important & not a lazy job as most would assume. The bewitching hours for heart attacks are usually between 3a-5a, when people tend to code aka have a heart attack! It is believed that at this time most people should be in their longest stage of Rapid Eye Movement (REM) which is where your heart rate becomes very erratic & breathing may become compromised i.e. obstructive sleep apnea. So, we carefully monitor patients all night & we are trained to recognize changes in vital signs that indicate distress on our monitoring systems & follow emergency protocols! At this time, I urge all of you who have children especially to learn CPR because it’s crucial to know what to do in emergencies! Please, also get your older children trained in CPR, in case you collapse! This message is brought to you by the 😴lady!
