What Do We Know
We know that C-PAP users want to stay informed and educated about the sleep apnea disease.
This is our web “school” for information regarding sleep apnea, sleep apnea equipment, and other topics. In the sections below, you will find advice from our experienced staff and links to helpful websites regarding sleep apnea.
If you’re new to the treatment of sleep apnea, our best advice is to relax, give yourself some time, and ask us questions. Many people are able to use their machine their first night, but some people need a little time. Give yourself a chance to adjust to the machine and feel free to contact us if you’re having trouble. Odds are in your favor that we’ve heard your question before and know how to help.
CPAP can prevent or reverse serious consequences of obstructive sleep apnea. The treatment can help protect you from these serious health risks:
Psychological BenefitsUntreated, severe sleep apnea can damage your brain tissue. As a result you may have trouble concentrating. You also may suffer from memory loss. Using CPAP may improve your ability to think, concentrate and make decisions. This also can improve your productivity and decrease your chance of making a costly mistake at work.
BenefitsIf you have sleep apnea, consistent CPAP use can reduce your risk of stroke, one of the leading causes of death and long-term disability. A stroke is a sudden loss in brain function. It occurs when there is a blockage or rupture in one of the blood vessels leading to the brain. People with untreated sleep apnea are two to four times more likely to have a stroke.
Social & Creative BenefitsCPAP can restore your normal sleep pattern and increase your total sleep time by eliminating breathing pauses in your sleep. This will help you wake up feeling more refreshed and boost your energy throughout the day. And CPAP can help improve your mood, reduce your risk of depression and improve your overall quality of life.
Have A Brighter OutlookBy improving your health, CPAP therapy can reduce your medical expenses. Sleep apnea can lead to more health problems and more doctors’ visits. Treatment for serious health risks linked to sleep apnea such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes can be costly. Medical expenses will decrease when you use CPAP to treat your sleep apnea.
