What is CPAP therapy?
CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. A CPAP machine provides air at a prescribed pressure through a tube and CPAP mask to a person with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. CPAP therapy provides a constant airflow which holds the airway open so that uninterrupted breathing is maintained during sleep. This eliminates sleep apnea events and allows the patient to get a restful sleep.

The pressure of the air is determined during your sleep study and your doctor will prescribe you a CPAP machine at that pressure.

CPAP therapy is traditionally provided through a nasal mask that seals around the nose. However, more innovative and comfortable options are available and advances in the delivery of CPAP therapy are continually occurring.

For instance: CPAPs with that boast FLEX or EPS technology will offer you exhalation relief. APAP, BiPAP and BiLevel machines offer various levels of pressure throughout the night and exhalation relief.

    I agree with kennita1… i watchd your videos often and love you and your kids’ antics,, however i was shocked when I saw you.

    I havent watched your videos for about 6 months and I must say apart from your hair growth,,your weight gain was very evident.

    You are a good mum and I encourage you to lose some weight.. you dont have to be stick thin, so that you continue to be there and be a good mum to your kids.

    This is not a hater comment; rather a comment of love,

    Take care and be blessed

    LOL! I have the same problem! I have sleep apnea due to fibromyalgia and I struggle with readjusting my straps depending on how big my hair is and whether I wear a scarf or bonnet. I’m having serious difficulty now that I’m wearing a mound of kinky twist extensions. I give up on trying to look cute in bed. Thank goodness my husband works most nights! (P.S. You might want to try the nasal pillow, IMO its more comfortable than the mask).

    LOL, If you haven’t had your mask long, you should ask them to give you the “nose pillow” instead. It is just a tube that sits on the edge of your nose and does not interfere with you getting comfortable to sleep. I have the nose pillows and they are great!! Good luck 🙂
