When you are starter using CPAP mask, you maybe meet some problems. Today this article talks about three common problems in daily life.
It is important to work closely with your healthcare provider and the CPAP supplier to ensure that you have a CPAP mask that fits properly. Everyone has a different face shape, so the mask style and size that works for someone else may not be suitable for you.
Other masks feature nasal pillows that fit under your nose and straps that cover less of your face, making them more comfortable to wear. Nasal pillows may be a good choice if you wear glasses or read with the mask on, as they don't block your eyes as much as full face masks do. However, this mask style may not be suitable if you move around a lot in your sleep or sleep on your side.
Most masks come in different sizes, so just because you are a certain size in one mask does not mean you will be the same size in another. CPAP masks are usually adjustable, so ask your doctor or CPAP supplier to show you how to adjust your mask for the best fit. Manufacturer product instructions can also help you with this. A properly fitting mask should not be uncomfortable or cause pain.
To get used to the CPAP machine, try wearing just the mask for short periods of time while you are awake, such as while watching TV. Then, wear the mask and hose with the machine turned on during the day while you are awake. Once you are comfortable with that, start using the CPAP machine every time you sleep, including during naps. If you only use the CPAP machine occasionally, it may take longer to get used to it. To ensure that your mask and pressure are right for you, it is important to use the CPAP machine consistently for several weeks or more.
You may be able to overcome this by using a machine with a "ramp" feature. This setting allows you to start with low air pressure, and the machine will gradually increase the air pressure to your prescribed setting as you fall asleep. Your doctor can adjust the rate of increase.
If this feature does not help, talk to your doctor about changing to a machine that automatically and constantly adjusts the pressure while you are sleeping, such as a bi-level positive airway pressure (BPAP) machine, which delivers more pressure when you inhale and less when you exhale.
