A CPAP Terminology Glossary - What does it all mean??

Posted Jul 24, 2012 by Kristen P. in
CPAP therapy has a language all its own, and you might hear us toss around terms or acronyms that mean absolutely nothing to you, a new CPAP user. Please excuse us in advance - some terms and concepts that are so natural to us might not help you at all understand your therapy or choose a CPAP set-up. Here we've tried to compile a list of some of the most common CPAP terms used and their meanings. Hopefully, this will get you started in your research about CPAP... sometimes it's just a matter of knowing the right word or acronym to find the information you need!   CPAP - Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. The technology behind your treatment. Also used when talking about the machine used to deliver this pressure or the mask used to deliver the pressure to your airway (i.e. CPAP Mask or CPAP Machine).

What to Expect During Your Sleep Study

Posted Jun 21, 2012 by Kristen P. in CPAP & Sleep Apnea Info
Whether your doctor suspects some form of sleep disorder, or you’ve had a diagnosis for years, chances are you will be required at some point to undergo a full sleep study (known clinically as a polysomnogram) to either diagnosis or reevaluate your current sleep problems. Though the test itself will probably not be the most comfortable or relaxing night’s sleep you’ve ever had, your sleep study does not have to be a dreaded experience.

Below are a few things to expect or remember for your first (or follow-up) polysomnogram: 1) Sleep Studies Have Many Purposes – Seasoned CPAP users may not feel they need a sleep study to continue their treatment, and undiagnosed individuals may not believe there is actually anything wrong, but regardless of your feelings about the study, remember this – a sle...

I Have Sleep Apnea - Now What?

Posted May 8, 2012 by Kristen P. in CPAP & Sleep Apnea Info
So, you've had a sleep study and been given the news you were already probably prepared for based on your doctor's suspicions - you have Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Your persistent snoring that you shrugged off for years has been revealed to be a real problem. Your sleepiness at work or while driving isn't because you're getting older - it's because you have a medical disorder that needs to be treated. For some this diagnosis might be devastating, while for others it might be a relief. Depending on the severity of symptoms and the length of time they've been occurring, some might be excited to have a solution for their increasing fatigue, weight gain, and irritability. No matter what emotion you feel when you are officially diagnosed with sleep apnea (and you may actually feel a combination of many), try to remember a few things - 1) Sleep apnea is now believed to be as common as diabetes with as many as 20 million Americans estimated to be affected and 2) there is treatment that is prove...
