How to Use a CPAP Machine

A CPAP machine is a treatment device that treats central and obstructive sleep apnea. This disorder occurs when your breathing is interrupted regularly throughout the night, and it causes severe snoring and a feeling of fatigue. A continuous positive pressure machine is used to rectify this condition by clearing your airway and delivering pressurized air to eliminate the obstruction. The benefits of this machine are far-reaching; it prevents heart disease and diabetes and eliminates snoring.

Using a CPAP machine requires attention to detail. Ensure you purchase the correct mask size. The accurate size will be more comfortable on your face and make it easier to use the device for long periods. Don't plug the equipment into an outlet with other devices. This is a common mistake that many CPAP users make. Also, ensure that all the components are clean and well stored when the machine is not in use. Always ensure the device is on a flat surface below your head even while you sleep. The air filter needs to stay unobstructed for the best results.
