CPAP Success Tips
Obstructive sleep apnea can often be controlled completely with a PAP device, but you must use it whenever you sleep. Getting used to sleeping with a PAP machine takes time. While at first you may find it inconvenient or troublesome, you shouldn’t give up on it. It will all be worth your while. Your sleep and health will benefit greatly. The Sleep Center of Northwest Indiana will be happy to help you with clinical or technical problems or questions. You just have to remember one number:
- Wear your CPAP every night. Using it less often reduces the health benefits and makes it harder for your body to get used it.
- Make sure that your mask fits well without leaking. DO NOT over tighten your mask. If you cannot eliminate the leaks, a new seal or mask may be needed.
- Use the ramp feature so that the air pressure increases slowly to the proper level.
- Use a saline nasal spray to ease mild nasal congestion.
- Take a nasal decongestant to relive severe nasal or sinus congestion.
- Clean your mask, tubing, and headgear daily.
- Regularly check and replace the filters on PAP unit.
- Work closely with your sleep doctor and your PAP supplier to ensure that you have the machine, mask, and air pressure that works best for you.
- Monitor weight gain and/or weight loss. This will affect the amount of pressure you need.
- DO NOT GIVE UP.
