If you're disturbing other people with your loud snoring, or if you feel drowsy even after getting enough sleep during the night, there's a possibility that you have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that could lead to further health complications. One possible treatment for sleep apnea is a CPAP machine. Let's delve into what sleep apnea is, what a CPAP machine does, and how you can keep your machine clean.

What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition in which your breathing stops for at least 10 seconds during your sleep. There are two common types of sleep apnea: obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA).

Obstructive sleep apnea happens when your throat muscles relax, which forces your airway to narrow or close when you breathe. On the other hand, central sleep apnea is a signaling issue where your brain fails to deliver signals to your breathing muscles.

Sleep apnea symptoms include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Headaches in the morning
  • Sudden mood changes
  • High blood pressure
  • Unusual sleepiness and fatigue during the day
  • Routinely waking up with a sore throat and dry mouth
What Does a CPAP Machine Help With?
If you're experiencing sleep apnea, your doctor might recommend using a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. The CPAP machine delivers constant air pressure through a tube connected to the mask you will wear while sleeping.

With steady pressurized air being delivered to you from the CPAP machine, your sleep quality may improve and risks of incurring health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart conditions, or stroke may be lessened.

But of course, using a CPAP machine is not smooth sailing right away. The masks come in different sizes and types, so you should consult a doctor or healthcare provider to ensure you purchase the right one for you. You also need to properly clean your CPAP machine to eliminate any bacteria or mold that could form in the device.
