CPAP and your Life

The use of CPAP is increasing in all age groups. Some people
are thankful and grateful for their reverse vacuum cleaner. A CPAP is a machine
with a hose and a cone that fits over the nose that forces air into the nose.
That forced air escapes to the back of the nose into the snoring complex, nose,
mouth, throat, and holds down the soft palate (where the uvula hangs from).
That stops the snoring and sleep apnea. Sleep apnea, long periods of
breathing stoppages, can be deadly. Deaths from cardiovascular disease are more
common in people with sleep apnea who don’t use a C-PAP than those who do. Cardiovascular events were
more common
in people who don’t use a C-PAP as compared to those who do.
Even so, not everyone loves their CPAP. Studies, using data recorded from time
clocks built into the CPAP machines have shown that wearing the machine is not
common and often used irregularly, and rarely
meets the prescribed level

Problems are many with the C-PAP. Surprisingly they offer a
wide range of problems like sneezing, nasal or mouth-drying, nose bleeds, eye
problems, TMJ discomfort, earache, bruxing or clenching, bruising, or rashes.
Yikes. When they’re all lined up like that the C-PAP sounds terrible; like the
list of side effects of the drugs on the television commercials. Trying
something more low tech is starting to look pretty appealing.  

There are secondary appliances that can help you. Dental appliances are great.
They keep the lower jaw forward, which gives the tongue a little room and makes
the airway a little bigger so that you can breathe. Not all of the dental
appliances help you to breathe through your nose, the proper way to breathe.
