CPAP Use & Nasal Hygiene
1. WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?
Sleep Apnea is a serious disease where the soft tissue in the throat collapses during deeper stages of sleep. This causes breathing to temporarily stop and oxygen levels in the blood can drop to potentially dangerous levels. This can lead to chronic hypertension, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease.
2. WHAT IS CPAP?
A CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine is one of the most common treatments for sleep apnea. It keeps your airways open while you sleep so you can receive the oxygen you need for optimal function. CPAP machines can significantly improve sleep quality and reduce your risk for a number of health issues, including heart disease and stroke.
3. HOW CAN NASOCLENZ HELP?
CPAP use can cause a variety of side effects including dry nose, congestion or crusting. NasoClenz is a simple and convenient way to moisturize and clean the nose in this setting, improving comfort and compliance in CPAP patients. Additionally, NasoClenz can help remove particles and germs that can collect in the nose.
