CPAP machines for sleep apnea

Working in a pharmacy, I do see a lot of people coming in for relief from snoring. Upon prompting most do admit they have problem getting a good night's sleep and waking up unrested.

Snoring often leads to the onset of sleep apnea, and that means the person stops breathing for more than 10 seconds at a time while sleeping. If left untreated, the wellbeing of the person may be compromised. High blood pressure, unrested and stress, these are some conditions diagnosed as well as affecting the relationship with partners.

But it is great to know that those who struggle with obstructive sleep apnea can get help and relief from using the cpap, short for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure device. The patient needs only to turn on the machine and wear a nasal mask when preparing for sleep, where the machine works by blowing air into the nostrils to keep the airway passage open. To purchase a CPAP machine, a prescription is needed from a physician if he deems it necessary after a sleep study.

CPAP Wholesale is the expert in sleep apnea products which also carries Auto CPAPs, BiLevel Cpaps, masks and humidiers from renowned manufacturers.
