What is Sleep apnea?
Sleep Apnea is a condition where a person stops breathing or has shallow breathing when sleeping. Irregular breathing and snoring result in multiple disruptions to your sleep and abnormal stress responses in the body that lead to many chronic health conditions like:
- High Blood Pressure
- Heart Attacks
- Memory Loss
- Anxiety and Depression
I have Sleep Apnea. Now what?
If your home sleep test from Saskatoon CPAP was positive, there is good news!
Sleep Apnea can be easily treated. The most common and highly effective treatment for Sleep Apnea is PAP therapy (more commonly known as CPAP). PAP therapy is a non-invasive treatment that gently blows air into your nose and/or mouth to create a small amount of positive pressure to prevent your airway from collapsing while you sleep. No more Sleep Apnea and no more snoring!
A compliment to a positive Home Sleep Test is an evaluation period on PAP therapy using one of our devices that generates the positive air pressure. This highly engineered flow generator has algorithms that adjust the therapy to your needs (APAP).
Your PAP therapy platform will include: an APAP device, heated humidifier and heated tubing to make your therapy more comfortable. You will also need a CPAP Mask (purchased separately) to use with the above equipment. Saskatoon CPAP Services will facilitate by providing testing outcomes to Saskatchewan Respirologists for interpretation. After evaluation your results will be analyzed to determine the best treatment moving forward.
The Benefits of PAP Therapy:
- Increase in daytime alertness
- Fewer morning headaches
- Increase in energy
- Improved memory
- Less waking at night to go to the bathroom
- Reduced irritabilityIncreased ability to exercise
