Not Using Your CPAP Can Put You at Risk for Illness
Do you have a CPAP machine? Do you have a loved one that does? Do you or your loved one use the CPAP? Dr. Bez asks because you may be joining many others with sleep apnea who share several experiences that can lead to something known in the field as “CPAP failure.” Studies show that up to 50% of those who have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and given a CPAP machine to use when sleeping don’t acclimate to using the machine properly over time.
Your sleep doctors want people to use their machine properly over time so that they feel better. But the real issue is that not using your CPAP machine regularly and as diagnosed can put you at risk.
