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!
Start things off on the right foot by feeling better! If you have sleep apnea why hesitate to experience CPAP benefits? Not only is CPAP therapy the most effective sleep apnea treatment, but it makes people feel better by providing their bodies and minds with the oxygen necessary for better sleep and healing.
Fathers play many roles in their children’s lives. They are providers, best friends, and oftentimes role models. I look up to my dad for his character, work ethic, and his ability to face adversity. He served in the U.S. military for over 20 years, and after retiring became a teacher for another 20 years. I can only hope to impact as many lives as he has with his generosity and will forever strive to be great like him. One of my biggest fears, however, is what if I can’t live up to those standards?
CPAP therapy has helped millions who have sleep apnea to get a better night’s sleep. Studies estimate that there are 22 million Americans that suffer from sleep apnea, and many of them are undiagnosed. Once you start your CPAP therapy, your overall state of health improves. It can, however, be difficult at first to get used to sleeping with your new mask or machine. How will it affect your regular sleep schedule? How hard is it to manage travelling with a CPAP machine? How difficult is it to keep up with cleaning supplies?
Now that you have your ResMed AirFit F30 Full Face Mask you probably can’t wait to try it on! You may have to face a little mask assembly first. Don’t worry, with the simple design of this mask, you’ll have it on in a snap.

You may think of asthma and sleep apnea as two unrelated conditions. Asthma typically occurs during the day, such as after someone is exposed to a trigger or after a sporting event, and sleep apnea occurs of course only at night (or when someone is asleep).
It is very overwhelming when you are introduced to your CPAP. You have a test that you took either at home or in the lab where you feel like you did not sleep, you then are told you stop breathing at night and you need to wear this machine. So, let’s break this down into smaller pieces so YOU start to feel comfortable with your machine.
