I've been looking for a way to work in a Crocodile Dundee reference, and here it is
Sleep apnea is a condition in which basically, a person has episodes during the night where he or she stops breathing for a second or two. One common treatment for sleep apnea is for that person to wear a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device, which has a mask that is worn on the face, This is often uncomfortable, and leads to low compliancy, which of course doesn't help the person to sleep.
Well, I'm thinking about suggesting to doctors that they have their apnea patients learn how to play a didgeridoo. Huh? How abstract is that? But see, it's really been proven to work, according to this article in the British Medical Journal. It has something to do with the circular breathing method required to sustain the musical notes. Apparently that helps to train the breathing muscles.
What the BMJ article didn't mention, however, was what beneficial effects there are of going shirtless and fighting crocodiles with a knife the size of your arm.
