Use of a BPAP machine makes for much better night of sleep for Dave Wiertzema of Adrian, reports Daily Globe.

While Wiertzema was hospitalized during August at Sioux Falls, S.D., due to complications from myasthenia gravis, medical personnel noticed his chronic sleep issues.

“They were working on my lungs and pulmonary function, trying to get that going again, and put me on a BPAP machine to help me sleep through the night,” explained Wiertzema.
