What Are The Benefits Of A CPAP Machine Sleep Life Halifax Fredericton Clinic

Getting a good night's rest is sometimes easier said than done. This is especially true if you suffer from Sleep Apnea. The most effective treatment for Sleep Apnea is the CPAP machine. 

What Is CPAP Therapy? 

CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. 

CPAP machines keep your airway open by sending air through a mask you wear while you sleep. This bit of air helps to keep your airway open and eliminates the breathing pauses caused by sleep apnea. When you sleep with a CPAP machine, you will no longer snore or make choking noises in your sleep. You can sleep through the night without your body waking up from a lack of oxygen.

A CPAP system is a small air compressor with flexible tubing and a mask. Most machines are about the size of a tissue box, lightweight and relatively quiet. You can keep the CPAP machine on your nightstand or at the side of your bed.

The tubing connects the CPAP machine to your mask. The tubing is long enough to allow you to move around or turn over in your bed. It will take some time to adjust to wearing one, but after a few nights, you’ll be sleeping better than you have in a long time, and with a lot less noise/ risk to your long-term health.
