I am a sleep medicine specialist too. The history and the data which you have posted suggests severe degree of sleep apnea. This will require urgent treatment. Further, we have to know if he has central sleep apnea, as the treatment of this condition will be different. The sleep medicine specialist in India are few. You can come to me after a prior appointment
