Do you ever wake up after sleeping with your CPAP machine to discover that your mouth is dry and your throat is so raw that you’re having trouble even swallowing? You know CPAP therapy is an important part of treating your sleep apnea, but your dry mouth has become so annoying you’re not sure whether you’re going to continue or not.
If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone, and you’re not out of luck!
One of the most common questions our patients ask here at CPAP Supplies is “what is the difference between CPAP and BiPAP?” Both machines are used to treat sleep apnea and can be used with a full face mask, nasal mask, and nasal pillows. Talk to your physician before buying a new machine, but if CPAP isn't working for you, BiPAP could be the solution.
Thunderstorms roll in, blizzards blow, wind knocks powerlines down. Power outages are a part of life. However, if you don’t have some kind of backup power supply, you could be stuck without your CPAP machine.
Whether you’ve just been diagnosed with a sleep disorder, or you’re looking to upgrade your old CPAP, there’s never been a better time to shop for a new CPAP machine.
Advances in technology have led to incredible new features that can improve your sleep quality and your quality of life! But how do you tell the must-haves from the mistakes?
