How to use your PAP device properly?


What is CPAP device?

A CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine is one of the most common treatments for sleep apnea. It keeps your airways open while you sleep so you can receive the oxygen you need for optimal function. CPAP machines can significantly improve sleep quality and reduce your risk for a number of health issues, including heart disease and stroke.1

Sleep apnea cause poor sleep about yourself. CPAP therapy can not only help you sleep well, but also can have other health benefits.

Such as better concentration and fewer accidents because of more well-rested. It can also make you healthier than before, especially the brain health. (Sleep apnea causes white matter damage, a type of brain damage. CPAP therapy has been shown to help repair white matter damage, and the treatment can also improve mood, alertness and overall quality of life.)

How you can know if your CPAP is working for you?

CPAP therapy can bring more sleep during nighttime sleep. After a short-time therapy, you can get less daytime sleepiness, feel more refreshed, and be able to get up and out of bed easier,without morning headache, and so on.

Sleep apnea causes restless sleep, and the night-after-night cycle of waking up and falling back to sleep can really take a toll on the body. Any positive change in your health will let you know if CPAP is working for you.
