If you’re one of the millions of people who suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, chances are you’re familiar with Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy. CPAP therapy is a highly effective treatment, however success is often limited by poor compliance because living with CPAP therapy can be difficult.
More often than not, it is a challenge to adjust to CPAP sleep, as the mask tends to press against your face which can lead to discomfort, skin irritation and drying out of the eyes, face and nasal area. The hose can be difficult to control and sleep movement can become restricted.
The good news is that more and more CPAP accessories are becoming available to help with these CPAP sleep issues. Among the most helpful are CPAP bed pillows that accommodate CPAP masks, improving comfort and reducing leaks. Additionally, hose tethers allow for better control during the night. Specially formulated lotions and nasal solutions prevent irritation and drying out of the skin, nostrils and eyes. They even sell wipes that make it easier to keep up with maintenance on your CPAP sleep unit.
