Missed breaths are usually in the interval of 10 seconds. That’s a long time of depriving your brain – and yourself – with oxygen.
But don’t panic, as sleep apnea is treatable. The most common treatment procedure involves the use of a CPAP machine – of course with a CPAP mask. The CPAP (Continuous Positive Airflow Pressure) machine provides a constant level of pressure in the air passageway to help you breathe normally.
In the case of sleep apnea, the muscles in your throat collapse – this is a natural occurrence when you sleep. However, there’s another kind of muscles, called the dilator muscles – that are responsible for working against such a collapse. When something is wrong with this phenomenon, sleep apnea, specifically, obstructive sleep apnea occurs.
When you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, your doctor will prescribe the use of a CPAP mask. This acts as the interface between the machine itself – the one providing the airflow pressure – and your air passage. Continued and supervised use of the CPAP mask naturally results to increased quality in sleep.
When you are able to sleep better, of course, the list of benefits is endless.
You are well-rested.
When you are finally able to sleep well, with or without the use of a sleep apnea mask in Toronto or elsewhere, you wake up feeling rested. You don’t wake up feeling that you’ve not had an ounce of sleep. Instead, you greet the day feeling refreshed and with a bright outlook for the day – and the days – ahead of you.
You are more productive at work.
Because you have tons of energy enough to last for the whole day, you are more than eager to attend to your tasks at work. You have a clear head, thus, you will not find it difficult to accomplish your tasks. Because you don’t feel listless and lethargic, you can handle whatever it is that your boss asks you to do. Of course, you are also being true to your biological nature – that you are designed to be active during the day, and rested during the night.
You have better mood.
A good night’s sleep results to better mood. You don’t end up scowling at every person who happens to meet your gaze. You can relate to others better. Thank goodness for the CPAP machine – and the CPAP mask.
Indeed, seeking treatment for sleep apnea would lead to a better you. Through the use of Respironics CPAP machines in Toronto, for example, you are able to get back to your normal sleeping pattern. Through the use of the CPAP mask, you are able to keep your muscles working properly, thereby allowing you to have a restful night.
By seeking treatment for sleep apnea, you are doing yourself a favour. You are finding ways to have a restful night so that you will wake up feeling better. More importantly, by seeking treatment, you are striving to have better sleep, to make way for a better you!
