Adjusting to CPAP Therapy

Upon being diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, many patients find that adjusting to CPAP therapy can be a difficult and at times frustrating task. Such a finding is not without adequate foundation: operating a CPAP machine can at first glance seem menacingly complex, and unless patients take the time to locate the right device for them, CPAP therapy can be extremely uncomfortable and marginally effective. Like so many forms of medication and therapy, CPAP therapy carries potential negative side effects; however, if patients make sure to check with a qualified sleep physician they should be able to avoid harmful consequences.

Common problems encountered with CPAP therapy are dry mouth, frequent leaking, facial marks, abdominal cramps and a range of others as well. These side effects are very unpleasant and often drive patients away from continuing with therapy on a regular basis; however, with adequate research and counsel, these and other unpleasant side effects can usually be eliminated. For instance, facial marks can often be prevented with a softer nasal cushion or nasal pillows. Leakage can corrected with a better fitting mask with a more secure seal.

In order to overcome many of the common issues associated with CPAP therapy it’s important that patients establish frequent contact with a sleep specialist. Sleep specialists are well acquainted with the many problems encountered during therapy, and can provide the necessary advice to help patients deal with their particular case. Though adjusting to CPAP therapy can often seem daunting, the benefits offered by therapy are substantial enough that patients should not be deterred by easily surmountable setbacks.
