I am having sleep apnea treatment soon. What can I expect to feel like after CPAP or surgery?

March 15th, 2011

If you just start using a CPAP, and use it every single night, a minimum of 4 hours. You will begin to feel better, less sleepy, fewer headaches, well rested, lower blood pressure and all the other good things that come with unobstructed and continuous breathing.

At first you may not sleep as well, as you have to have time to adjust to wearing the CPAP mask. But eventually, if you stick with it, you’ll wonder why you didn’t seek treatment sooner!

Good luck with it!

    After CPAP treatment, the apnea-hypopnea index is lower, and mean lowest SaO2 higher than before treatment. After CPAP, patients are more bradycardic, blood pressure and its standard deviation decreased as SaO2 improved in non-REM stage 2 sleep, and BRS increased (nocturnal wakefulness: +59%; non-REM stage 2 sleep: +68% over pretreatment values). Baroreflex dysfunction in OSAS may be at least partly accounted for by nocturnal intermittent hypoxemia, and can be reversed by long-term CPAP treatment.
