    My grandpa is eighty-two years old and is suffering from chronic bronchitis. He has been taking medicines for more than five years. He doesn’t sleep most nights and is forced to take sleeping pills. Now we showed another doctor who was a family friend in Canada and he suggested using CPAP masks.
    We were quite surprised to find him sleeping peacefully without taking any pills. My question is if CPAP is not a harming device then why didn’t any of the doctors we consulted in the last five years didn’t even bother to suggest a CPAP?
