Effective Alternatives to the CPAP Machine

The CPAP machine can be life-changing for people who suffer from severe sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is characterized by several periods throughout the night when you stop breathing for a short amount of time. Your body reacts to the sudden loss of oxygen and causes you to gasp for air. This scenario can occur hundreds of times during the night if your sleep apnea is severe. The ramifications of having your sleep constantly disrupted include issues like daytime tiredness, high blood pressure, depression, heart issues, and a number of other serious health problems. The CPAP machine works by releasing a continuous stream of air pressure while you sleep to keep your airway open and eliminates the gaps in your breathing. This can reduce or eliminate the side effects you experience from your sleep apnea. However, many people who suffer with sleep apnea have found the CPAP machine to be an annoying and uncomfortable device to try and wear during sleep. If you are struggling to sleep well using your CPAP machine there are some alternatives that you should consider.
