What is CPAP sleep therapy

Recover your life and sleep normally again? How about having the energy to chase your children or grandchildren? For most patients with sleep apnea, these are just some of the benefits that positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy promises.

Sure, it may take some adjustment, but the results far outweigh the challenges, giving you the energy and interest to get back to your hobbies and feel empowered again for your daily activities.

The health benefits

Most people who adhere to CPAP treatment will sleep better and with better quality sleep, will feel better during the day, will see improvement in other potential health problems (e.g. high blood pressure and heart failure) and may even lose weight.

How long will it take to see the difference?

Chances are that you have suffered from sleep apnea for months or even years before you were diagnosed, so be patient when you first start treatment. It may take some time for your body to fully recover. Some people notice an improvement within a few days, while others may need a little more time to see it.

One tip is to keep track of your treatment use and how you feel during the day. This can help you see your progress.
