CPAP Success!

After 40 nights of using a CPAP machine, I’m sleeping and feeling much better! An estimated 50-70 million Americans suffer from a sleep or waking disorder. I am one of those people. I suffer from sleep apnea, meaning I stop breathing in my sleep due to a blocked airway. I probably should have done something about it years ago, but finally got a referral from my doctor after my annual exam last fall. I had an initial consultation and sleep study at Memorial Hospital’s Sleep Center last month. I was nodding off at work and taking really long weekend naps. The results showed that I was not getting even a full minute’s sleep at night, waking up an average of 83 times an hour. I got a prescription for a CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) machine, using Howard’s Medical Supply as my provider.  I started using it, getting immediate results. Instead of waking up 83 times an hour, I’m now waking up an average of 6 times per hour. That’s just slightly above the norm my sleep specialist would like me to reach, but I no longer nod off at work or take long weekend naps. I’m scheduled to go back in a year for another evaluation.  It’s been great so far!
