CPAP Supply USA - Guide to Healthy Sleep

CPAP Supply USA believes in Sleep Therapy education and wellness. And that is why we continue to pass along information on sleep therapy, sleep apnea, and any respiratory related guides and topics to ensure you and your loved ones are well informed. Read the following tips on healthy sleep:

 

NAPS
    •  Naps are great!
    •  Naps should never be a substitute for a good night’s sleep
    •  Naps can help to make up for sleep lost during the night
    •  Keep naps no longer than 20 minutes to avoid issues waking from the nap
    •  Avoid naps after 3pm if having issues falling asleep at night

BEDTIME
    •  Ensure your mattress is the right one for you and your comfort
    •  Pillows are an important part of a good night’s sleep so choose one that fits you and
       your comfort level
    •  Turn your clock around so it doesn’t distract if you are a CLOCK WATCHER
    •  Don’t lie in bed awake over 20 minutes or if anxious and worried…this will make falling
       asleep more difficult

ENVIRONMENT
    •  Your room temperature should be adjusted to your comfort level (cool temperatures
       usually work best)
    •  The temperature of the room can be an added distraction causing loss of sleep
    •  Get rid of other distractions such as bright lights and noises

ALCOHOL & OTHER SUBSTANCES
    •  Alcohol and sedatives just before bedtime can promote snoring
    •  Alcohol can also disrupt sleep or cause your airway more difficult to stay open
    •  Sedatives can cause extensive and more severe sleep apneas

The 5 C's for CPAP Success

You have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. You have your equipment, now what?

  1. COMFORT – There are several items available to help you obtain maximum comfort when using your CPAP machine. We offer pillows, moisturizers, mask liners and many more comfort items to help you get comfortable.
  2. CLEANING – A very important but sometimes forgotten job is cleaning with the proper cleaning supplies. Filters need to be changed regularly, tubing should be cleaned weekly and your mask should be cleaned with a non-alcohol cleanser such as CPAP mask wipes.
  3. CORRECTION – There is a pretty good chance your first mask may not be the mask for you. That is no reason to give up. Our friendly customer service staff is ready to help. AND we are now offering free mask assurance on select masks! If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again.
  4. CONSISTENCY – Use your CPAP every time you sleep. Even if you only use your CPAP for a few hours, this will make it easier for your body to adjust to the treatment.
  5. COMMITMENT - CPAP is not a quick fix, it’s a lifestyle change that involves a long-term commitment to improve your health.

Now take the CPAP CHALLENGE! Do you know someone else with similar symptoms that you were experiencing? Challenge them to improve their sleep and health.

Yes, you can use the FSA/HSA card just like a credit or debit card. No difficulties when you use your card with CPAP Supply USA, your top online provider of PAP and respiratory supplies.
