Heart Stop/Sleep Apnea Question
I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea for a year or so. During the sleep test at that time they told me I would stop breathing for 3 seconds at various times.
More recently, upon review of a heart monitor report my cardiologist told me my heart stopped for three seconds on 3 occasions. Is this cessation of breathing due to the heart or apnea? Is there a correlation between the two?
Has anyone had a similar experience?

I'm a runner, mountain climber, kayaker, snow skier, bicycler and scuba diver. The only activity among those that I'm not yet cleared to do is scuba diving, and when I am cleared, I'll be limited to diving to 50 feet.
