It's no secret that CPAP therapy has changed the lives of countless people all around the globe. It has helped people improve their energy levels, reduce their snoring, and allowed them to have a better sleep in general.
Unfortunately, many people are unaware that they have sleep apnea. It can take people years before they realise that they have a problem and are then able to do something about it.
If you are someone who experiences some, or all, of the symptoms associated with sleep apnea then it may be beneficial for you to have a sleep study done to help find the underlying cause of the problem.
Let's hear the testimonials of several people who have discovered CPAP therapy and the difference it makes in their lives.
Wesley Fleming, MD: You have no idea how many patients come and see me and say, oh, I've had sleeping problems for 30 years, 40 years. And I say to them, well, where have you been?
Brook: I had been for years so tired at work, fighting to get through the afternoon.
Ernest: It got to a point when I'm driving back and forth, 3:30 - 4:00 o'clock in the afternoon, I realised I'm asleep at the wheel.
Jere: I knew there were nights that I would wake up literally sitting up coughing and gasping for air.
Ernest: I have the ResMed AirSense 10. And for me, I had a nasal device with the nose pillow. My breathing is better. I think I've lost 15 or 20 pounds just because I think it's less stress.
Jere: I was shocked. I was beyond shocked. I mean, how many years I'd slept without that thing and just felt like I was getting plenty of sleep no problem. My Auto PAP has definitely made a difference in that.
Brook: It's freeing to know that you can operate in whole wellness. I think you've got to challenge yourself and be in relentless pursuit of health.
Ernest: ResMed has changed my life absolutely without a doubt.
We hope you found the stories of these individual people very useful. Sometimes all it takes is a simple overnight sleep test to discover whether or not you should start on CPAP therapy.
