It is estimated that over 40 million people in the United States suffer from a chronic sleep disorder such as sleep apnea. While that number is a relatively small percentage of the overall population, for those who are suffering from sleep apnea or another chronic sleep disorder (and their loved ones) the numbers don’t matter. What matters is that they have the help they need via a CPAP machine and CPAP mask.
CPAP, which stand for continuous positive airway pressure, is the acronym given to the sleep apnea machine and mask that works to provide the wearer with a gentle, yet constant source of moist air to prevent disruptions in breathing while asleep.
The disruptions or cessation of breathing while sleeping can be dangerous and is the cause of snoring—one of the main frustrations of those who live with someone suffering from sleep apnea. But with properly fitting sleep apnea supplies, sleeping is safer, more restful, and snoring is no longer a problem.
Basic and more advanced sleep apnea supplies, including CPAP masks and CPAP machines, are prescribed by a doctor once a person has been diagnosed with a sleep disorder that can be treated and corrected with the help of a CPAP machine and mask. Most sleep apnea supplies are covered (at least to some extent) under most medical insurance plans and are for sale in Springfield, MO. Being able to purchase your sleep apnea supplies locally allows you to have quicker access to parts and supplies for your CPAP machine instead of having to wait for mail-order supplies to arrive.
While no one would argue that snoring is an annoying problem to deal with, it can also be a sign of something much more dangerous, so don’t let snoring and sleep apnea get between you and a good and safe night’s sleep. See your doctor and find out whether a CPAP machine is right for you.
