Sleep apnea and other sleep disorders are estimated to affect as many as 40 million people in the United States alone. Lack of sufficient rest is becoming a huge problem, not just for the individuals affected but for their families and society as a whole. A good night's sleep is important to good health, just like good nutrition and regular exercise. Left untreated, sleep apnea and other sleep disorders can lead to serious health issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes, not to mention untold lost work hours and traffic fatalities.
Fortunately, there are solutions available to those afflicted with sleep apnea and other sleep disorders caused by improperly functioning airways. Coming on the market in the 1980s, continuous positive airway pressure or CPAP machines, have revolutionized the treatment of these problems. Like all technology, these machines just keep getting better, more effective and easier to use.
