assallaammualaikum ! i have a severe problem of sleep apoenia {it is when one stops breathing when sleeping}.a sleep study was done on me and it revealed that i stop breathing 189 times,the most severe case the pulmonologist saw besides mine was 18. this severely affects my conduct during the day where i am always tired and sleepy and often,uncontrolably,fall asleep during meetings and whilst driving. i am using a cpap machine whilst i sleep,this machine pushes air into my brain which reduces the stopage of my breathing.if i use this machine whilst fasting , will my fast be broken? it is only air that is being inhaled.quite often whilst using this machine,although it helps,i can barely keep my eyes open and cannot read taraweeh/esha,will i be at fault? jazakallah,assallaammualaikum

As per your description the fast will not break. Sit on a chair and perform your Salaat. Do not miss Esha.
