Whatever you do, please do NOT travel without your CPAP! Your better half will thank you for it I am sure.
Don’t go on a vacation without your CPAP, we have travel cpap machines, and mini CPAP units.
Sleep Apnea is a serious problem for many. There is a distinct difference between snoring and sleep apnea. With sleep apnea, the breathing actually stops intermittently. Apnea may be due to one of two variables, central apnea when the brain fails to signal the breathing, or obstructive when the airway relaxes and closes off blocking air flow. When breathing stops for ten seconds or more, it is considered “apnea”. CPAP for sleep apnea (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), will apply air pressure directly to the airway keeping it open so that breathing continues even through what would otherwise be an apnea. I think off CPAP like an internal air-splint. CPAP is very effective and requires a perscription from your MD.
