The air delivered through the pneumothorax pressure settings helps you to breathe easier during sleep. When you have obstructive sleep apnea, your brain doesn’t get enough oxygen and sometimes the problem goes undetected for a long time. In some cases, the patient may not be fully conscious or show any signs of breathing problems during the day. If that is so, then oxygen levels in their blood will go down to dangerously low levels and cause many other health issues as well.
The CPAP mask is designed to help you breathe easier while sleeping at night. It diffuses air pressure and delivers it to your nostrils via the tube attached to it. This helps keep the air pressure constant throughout your breathing cycle. While wearing it, you feel that there is a blockage in your airway, but in reality your airway is just fine and the obstruction would be taken care of if you don’t have obstructive sleep apnea.
Before Using Your CPAP Machine It is recommended that you read the instructions about how to use your machine before you start using it. Follow each step carefully and avoid any risks that may come up along the way. Before using a new mask or tube, check for any signs of wear and tear in the mask or tube. Replace damaged parts immediately. The cpap machines worth considering should be cleaned daily using soap and warm water along with a cloth. Prior to cleaning, unplug the power cord if they are corded models, or if they are wireless models disconnect them from their power source.
