Common Misconceptions about CPAP

CPAP or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machines are used for artificial breathing throughout the world but people often have a lot of wrong notions about them.

    ·They all come in one size - This is one of the most common misconceptions. Different machines come in different sizes. Each one is crafted for each of your specific needs and is very different from each other.
    ·It must be worn continuously and every night - CPAP devices are made for your comfort. It is natural that after a specific period of time, the whole contortion might make you irritated and may feel uncomfortable. You can always remove it for a few hours and then use it according to your needs,
    ·I have to use it all my life - CPAP helps in combating a lot of problems, and hence are very important, but it is not necessary that you suffer from these problems all your life and hence it is not necessary for you to use them all lifelong.

There seem to be a lot of different types of CPAP breathing machines for snoring and sleep apnea. Can anyone tell me the difference between them?


if you need to use a CPAP machine, then your specialist should tell you what kind of machine you need for your specific case. But watch this video on youtube from the CPAP website. It gives a basic overview about the different types of machines available;

How do you know which CPAP snoring masks are best for you?


FOR ME I HAD TO HAVE A SLEEP STUDY DONE. IT IS A 2 DAY PROCESS. THEY HOOK UP ALL SORTS OF PROBS ON YOU AND MONITOR YOUR BREATHING. THE TEST WILL SHOW HOW MANY TIMES YOU STOP BREATHING. THEN YOU GO IN ON ANOTHER DAY AND THEY TRY DIFFERENT MASK DURING THE STUDY. ONCE YOU GET ACCUSTOM TO IT THEY MONITOR YOUR SLEEP AGAIN. THIS TIME, IF IT WORKS, YOU SLEEP THE REST OF THE NIGHT. FOR ME IT WAS WORTH IT.

What is CPAP? I know it's something to do with sleeping and snoring.


CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. It involves wearing a pressurized mask over your face while you sleep at night to help force air through the airways.


CPAP is used to treat sleep apnea and heavy snoring but the machine is very noisy and it's not comfortable to sleep with, so it's worth trying other solutions before turning to CPAP for help.
