From the Desk of:
Marc MacDonald, M.Sc.
Independent Sleep Apnea Researcher
Dear Fellow Sleep Apnea Sufferer,
If you are one of the many people struggling with CPAP, you know that faithfully using your CPAP every night can be a huge challenge. Well, you’re not alone. Research shows that up to 50% of sleep apnea sufferers stop using their CPAP within 3 months.
It’s obvious why: wearing a mask and being hooked up to a machine while you’re asleep can feel unnatural, uncomfortable, and can even have side effects on your health.
But did you know that there are thousands of people who happily use their CPAP equipment night after night without any problems at all – and have eliminated their sleep apnea symptoms?
“What am I doing wrong?” you’re probably asking yourself. “Why can’t I come to grips with my CPAP?”
Let me assure you of one thing right now: it’s not your fault. It IS unnatural to sleep with a “Darth Vader mask” (as some people call the CPAP mask). But it DOESN’T have to be uncomfortable, difficult, and a constant struggle.
Through my extensive research I’ve found a handful of simple solutions that can get you using your CPAP effortlessly, night after night.
But first, let me explain why CPAP is a huge pain to use for so many people.
Notice how I emphasized the words “properly” and “consistently”? The challenge facing sleep apnea sufferers is to overcome the many small problems that are so common with CPAP so they can use their equipment the right way night after night.
Research by the Mayo Clinic shows some of the most common problems that users face with CPAP:
- Trouble getting used to the mask
- Nasal congestion
- Feeling claustrophobic
- Leaky mask
- Dry mouth
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Sore throat
- Skin irritation
- Mask falling off during sleep
- Sinus discomfort
- Difficulty during exhalation
I’ve spent countless hours researching and interviewing people prescribed with CPAP, as well as the experts who help them overcome CPAP problems. I can assure you – you are definitely not alone in your CPAP struggles!
Over the past few years I’ve received hundreds of emails from people who struggle with their CPAP. So I recently did a survey of my website subscribers to find out EXACTLY what questions they have about CPAP. I was overwhelmed by the volume and variety of challenges that CPAP users are having.
Here are some of the questions that my subscribers asked about CPAP:
- How do I overcome claustrophobia when wearing my CPAP mask?
- Are there truly leak-proof masks?
- What are the best masks for mouth breathers?
- What is causing my watering eyes, sneezing, dry mouth, fatigue, and headache when using CPAP?
- What are some tips for getting used to wearing the mask?
- My mask keeps moving at night. How do I keep it in place?
- How do I properly clean my CPAP equipment?
- What are the health side effects of using CPAP?
- How to use it without the fear of panic when I use the nose/face masks?
- I have a stuffy clogged nasal passage after using CPAP. How can I stop that?
- I find that I take my CPAP off at night and do not realize I have done it. I have tried all different types of mask but nothing seems to work for me. Can you help?
- How do I find a good full-face mask?
- My mask wakes me up while I’m asleep. How do I stay asleep while wearing the mask?
- What is the difference between CPAP and BiPAP?
- I travel for business. Are there “travel friendly” devices out there so I can sleep on a plane and not fear I’m going to disturb everyone?
And many more questions.
Now, you might be thinking, “Why even bother trying to get my CPAP to work for me? I’ll just throw it in the closet and forget about it!”
That would make sense if sleep apnea were a mild health condition. But the fact is, sleep apnea is NOT a health condition to be taken lightly.
It’s a fact: if left untreated, sleep apnea can KILL YOU eventually. And I’m not just talking about the much higher chance that you’ll be in a car crash if you have apnea (although that’s definitely a factor).
If you’re not yet convinced of how serious sleep apnea is, please take 2 minutes to watch this video by the Mayo Clinic:
Over time, sleep apnea has been seen to lead to a long list of nasty diseases.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, these are just some of the side effects of sleep apnea:
- High blood pressure
- Eye disorders, including glaucoma, conjunctivitis, and dry eye
- Irregular menstrual periods
- High-risk pregnancies
- Liver damage
- Seizures, epilepsy, and other nerve disorders
- Kidney failure
- Heart failure
At this point I’m sure two things are crystal-clear in your mind: (1) if you leave your sleep apnea untreated, there will be dire health consequences in your life; and (2) CPAP can eliminate your sleep apnea (if only you could get over the challenges of using it).
So your choice is clear: get a handle on your CPAP, or risk quickly deteriorating health.
What I learned was pretty surprising. In fact there were two things that really stuck out from my research and discussions with therapists:
1) While there’s a large range of CPAP problems, most CPAP users encounter just a handful of common problems.
2) The solutions to these common problems are surprisingly simple. They often cost very little (or nothing at all), and can be implemented easily by any CPAP user.
In fact, there are many little “secrets” that respiratory therapists have for getting your CPAP to work for you. Put together, these tips can make the difference between CPAP success or failure – and between a life with or without sleep apnea.
Up until now, sleep apnea sufferers haven’t had access to ALL of the secrets of CPAP in one place. Until now
Because after months of research and talking to CPAP experts, I’ve put together the ULTIMATE resource for CPAP users – a written guide, audio interview, and online videos that will solve all your CPAP problems. I call it “Living With CPAP”:
But before I tell you more about this exciting new resource, I should tell you a little more about me…
At 2:00am that evening, my wife abruptly sat up, gasping for air. It was as if she was dreaming about being chased! Suddenly she sat bolt upright in bed. She was choking for air, and completely disoriented. She didn’t know where she was.
That incident was repeated many times in the coming months. Every night, her breath stopping and she gasping for air. What we didn’t know at the time was that my wife had the classic symptoms of sleep apnea.
But my wife’s problems didn’t stop at night. During the day, she was chronically fatigued – sometimes falling asleep just by sitting down on the couch. I was so concerned about her constant tiredness that I was scared she was going to crash our car!
We both knew it wasn’t natural to be so tired all of the time. And we also suspected that gagging while asleep pointed to some health problem. But at the time we didn’t even know about sleep apnea. We were soon to find out many surprising facts about this silent killer…
In the months following that fateful night I spent hundreds of hours researching sleep apnea treatments. I share what I’ve learned on my catalog site, which you can visit here: http://www.ApneaTreatmentCatalog.com.
Here’s what people have said about my sleep apnea treatment guides:
In the course of researching alternative sleep apnea treatments, I’ve spent a lot of time reading about the struggles that sleep apneics have with CPAP. That’s led me to research the best ways to use CPAP equipment and overcome common problems.
I’ve spoken with experienced respiratory therapists and delved into the scientific research on CPAP use. The end result? My new guide to choosing the best CPAP equipment and conquering common problems with CPAP!
In the 34-page guide you’ll learn:
- How to choose the right CPAP machine
- How to make sure the pressure of your CPAP machine is correct
