Hate Your CPAP?
If you suffer from sleep apnea it is not uncommon to hate your CPAP. CPAP machines are loud, uncomfortable, unsightly, and often unsanitary. CPAP machines often cause skin irritation, dry mouth, nosebleeds, congestion, and occasionally stomach bloating.
A CPAP, or a continuous positive airway pressure therapy, uses a machine to help a person who suffers from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) breathe more easily during sleep. Sleep apnea occurs when the tongue and soft tissue of the mouth fall back into the throat, causing the airway to collapse and become blocked during sleep. A CPAP increases air pressure in the throat to keep the airway open and safe from collapse. More than 20 million American suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, but unfortunately, only 23%-45% of patients who use a CPAP regularly have found success.
