If you suspect you may have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome, you should see your referring doctor for a consultation with a specialist for a sleep study.
Once you have a diagnosis of positive Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome, you should be treated.
Your doctor will tell you which therapeutic option is right for you based on the results of the sleep study.
What should you know before you start?
Most people who perform a positive airway pressure treatment agree that it takes time to adjust. But they also claim it’s worth it.
Here are some points to help you get on track with treatment, even before you start using the equipment.
Finding the ideal mask
Choosing the right mask for you is essential. A wrong choice of mask can lead you not to adapt to the treatment.
Discover the masks we offer at Cpap Therapy below by type of breathing, treatment needs, lifestyle and other options.
Installing the Equipment
The treatment system consists of a mask, a tube, the treatment equipment and the humidifier.
Knowing what to do (and what not to do) when installing equipment can make all the difference throughout your treatment.
We offer you some tips on the installation of equipment for the treatment of sleep apnea.
Adaptation to treatment
Once you have installed the equipment and feel good using it, it is important to track the progress of treatment.
Staying committed to follow-up is the best way for you and your healthcare team to verify that your obstructive sleep apnea is controlled and properly treated.
After a while, you may realize that your treatment needs have changed, which involves changing the mask or treatment equipment settings. Follow-up is also helpful so that the healthcare professional can see how you are responding to specific treatment and adjust it, if necessary, so that you can continue to get the most out of therapy.
