I See You: Closing The Gap On Sleep Apnea

Helping people feel better and do better starts with exploring the question "Could I have sleep apnea?" 

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is everywhere and yet a lot of sufferers remain in the dark as to what is going on with their bodies after lights out. Even scarier are the health consequences, distress, and misery for those affected and the ones around them. 

I See You is for adults wondering "could I (or you) have sleep apnea?" It walks the reader through: 

  • The costs of untreated sleep apnea
  • What is sleep apnea
  • Sleep apnea's friends and known associates
  • Sleep apnea's connection to shortness of breath
  • Testing options for sleep apnea
  • Making sense of sleep test results
  • Treatment options for sleep apnea
  • Self assessment tools


This book is all of the things I wish my Sleep and Pulmonology patients knew about sleep apnea, sleep testing, and sleep apnea therapies before getting to their healthcare appointment.   ~Carrissa Hankins, MSN, APRN, FNP-C

I Hear You: From CPAP Struggle to Success

Arriving at a sleep apnea diagnosis is like winning a battle. Successfully treating sleep apnea is more like fighting in a war. It's not a one time attempt. Nor do we always realize when we have arrived at victory. 


I Hear You, is for adults contemplating CPAP therapy or adults struggling with their CPAP therapy. It walks readers through

  • The interplay between motivation and details when it comes to CPAP
  • Inviting your healthcare team into your struggles and victories
  • Why claustrophobia is not always a CPAP deal breaker
  • The different types of CPAP and what their jobs are
  • How to choose a mask (when you have no idea what to pick)
  • Why there should be no "helicopters" in the bedroom (and what to do if you find one)
  • The dirty truth about CPAP cleaning
  • What the numbers on a CPAP machine report mean
  • And much more. 


I use the information in this book on a daily basis with my sleep apnea and respiratory failure clinic patients. They speak. I listen. And together we figure out the best way forward. Regardless of which side of the exam table you find yourself on (patient or healthcare provider), if you want to have a better understanding of what goes wrong with CPAP (and how to fix it), this book is for you. ~Carrissa Hankins, MSN, APRN, FNP-C
