Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Your son has the sleep disorder of sleep apnea and it's good he is using his c-pap. However, his cpap may not be working properly.
A good cpap will have an online sleep quality result every night - is he checking the quality of his sleep this way? If not, he should. If he has a beard, he should shave it as facial hair does interfere with how the cpap works. His apnea is severe but not as bad as it could be - some people can stop breathing 80-90 times per hour. However, he does need to look further into this.
When you say "he holds an object in his right hand it invariably drops to the floor" is this because he falls asleep or does this happen when he's awake?
He may need to see a neurologist.
