What is sleep apnea?
Many people don’t realize they suffer from sleep apnea. However, they do recognize that it is a serious health problem. Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder where normal breathing is interrupted while asleep and dismisses the natural sleep rhythm at night. Common side effects include feeling lethargic, making it difficult to concentrate, and being unproductive during the day along with many serious health risks.
Common signs of sleep apnea:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea – While asleep, the airway becomes blocked, causing your body to pause its breathing, which causes snoring. This is a sign of sleep apnea that isn’t usually noticed by the person themselves but typically discovered by a partner or roommate complaining about snoring. This isn’t something that should be ignored, as it can cause serious damage to your personal health.
Not treating sleep apnea can result in an increased risk of health setbacks, poor attention, and slow responses. Sleep apnea can lead to confusion, impatience, and even lead to depression. This may include high-risk problems of physical health, such as diabetes, heart disease, liver problems, and weight gain.
Types of sleep apnea:
Obstructive – most commonly occurs when the soft tissue in the back of your throat rests during sleep and blocks the airway.
Central – relates to the central nervous system, and takes place when the human brain is inadequate to signal the muscles that regulate breathing. People with this symptom sometimes snore.
Complex – a combination of obstructive and central sleep apnea.
Signs and symptoms:
It is difficult to discover sleep apnea on your own because the signs occur while asleep. One way to determine that your partner has sleep apnea is by recording them while they are asleep.
The CPAP Machine:
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, or CPAP machine, is used to treat sleep-related breathing disorders, which includes sleep apnea. CPAP machine treatment uses mild air pressure to keep open airway breathing. The CPAP machine includes a mask or other device that fits over the nose and mouth. A tube attaches the mask to the machine’s motor, which drives air through the tube and into the mask.

After CPAP treatment, many patients notice instant improvements. They now experience quality sleep, decreased snoring, and less fatigue. The long-term benefit is preventing or managing high blood pressure, reduces the risk of stroke, and helps to improve memory and other sensitive roles.
Treat Sleep Apnea
CPAP treatment may include congestion, runny nose, dry mouth, and nosebleeds. If stomach trouble or swelling occurs, avoid using your CPAP machine and contact your doctor. The face mask may also cause irritation. Your doctor can find options to help relieve these issues. It’s very important to clean the mask and tube every day to avoid mold and bacteria growth which causes, even more, damage to your health.
