    Frequently asked questions

    What are the benefits of regular usage of PAP therapy?

    Most PAP users who remain committed to treatment enjoy:

    - Increased energy and attentiveness

    - Fewer morning headaches

    - Reduced irritability

    - Improved memory

    - Increased ability to exercise

    - Lower blood pressure

    - Decreased risk of strokes and heart attacks

    - Increased effectiveness at home and at work

    - Improved overall quality of life

    When should I start feeling better after beginning to use my CPAP?
    Most people begin to feel better within the first week of use, though for some people it may take a little longer.
    What if I still snore while using my CPAP?
    Snoring while on CPAP should not happen. If it does, contact your doctor. Your pressure level might need to be adjusted.
    What if I lose or gain weight over the course of my treatment or my old symptoms reappear?
    You may need to have your CPAP pressure level adjusted. Contact your doctor.
    If I need to be hospitalized for any reason, should I take my device with me and use it at night?
    Yes. Also, if you are having surgery, it is important to tell the surgeon and the anesthesiologist that you are using CPAP at home. You should also inform the doctor treating you for sleep apnea that you are going into the hospital.
    I just can’t seem to adjust to my CPAP therapy. What should I do?
    Most people will adjust to CPAP in one to two weeks. Occasionally, it may take a little longer if, for example, you are very sensitive to the feel of the mask on your face or the sound of the device. Call your homecare provider or your prescribing physician if you continue to have problems beyond two weeks. Ask if you are eligible to try a bi-level or auto-adjusting device.
