Continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP) uses a machine to help a person who has obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) breathe more easily during sleep. A CPAP machine increases air pressure in your throat so that your airway does not collapse when you breathe in. When you use CPAP, your bed partner may sleep

Overall, CPAP is effective for moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea:

Research shows that continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) decreases daytime sleepiness, especially in those with moderate to severe sleep apnea. 2, 3 But CPAP may not be as effective for people who have mild sleep apnea. 3
Studies show that in people who have moderate to severe sleep apnea, nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) lowers blood pressure during both the day and the night. 4, 5, 6
CPAP is better than other non-surgical methods for treating obstructive sleep apnea. 7
People with coronary artery disease who use CPAP for sleep apnea are less likely to have heart problems such as heart failure. 8

    My auntie uses a machine to help her breath because she also has sleep apnea. She’s very heavy and has been put on a diet by her doctor. Weight has a lot to do with it. You may want to start eating healthier so you don’t have more health problems. But I think you’re beautiful and I love your show.

    my husband has sleep apnea also, but his machine doesn’t need water, and instead of the full mask, he has some sort of nose plug (he says the mask would cause his face to break out), hope this works for you, and wish you more peaceful nights of sleep!!!
