If you suffer from sleep apnea, you know how difficult it can be to get a good night of sleep. Those who struggle with sleep apnea often stop breathing repeatedly throughout the night, hundreds of times even, in some cases. While this makes it incredibly uncomfortable for sleeping, it also starves your body and brain of oxygen. When this happens, you don’t receive the necessary amount of oxygen, making sleep apnea a serious condition.
If you live with obstructive sleep apnea, you know how difficult it can be to get a good night of sleep. And if you use a CPAP device, you know how much more difficult it is to feel comfortable and sleep through the night.
If you have obstructive sleep apnea and use a CPAP device while sleeping, you might find it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep throughout the entire night. It does take some time to adapt to using a CPAP device because of the sound, the feel of the mask on your face and of course the air pushing on your face. But it’s important to continue using your CPAP as prescribed to keep your sleep apnea under control and speak with your physician about any concerns you have about using it.
