Sleep disorders are a common health problem, psleep apnea. Although people are finally recognizing sleep apnea as the dangerous and life-threatening disease it is, there is a great deal more that needs to be done in recognizing its seriousness and treating it. One particularly common and standard treatment for this condition is continuous positive airway pressure via a CPAP mask. With CPAP treatment, patients wear a CPAP mask during the night over their nose or nose and mouth. The mask connects to the machine with a hose. The machine then pumps pressured air into the patient’s airway to keep it open while they’re sleeping. While CPAP is considered the most effective treatment for sleep apnea, compliance with it continues to be problematic.
