What do a contoured pillow, a 10-minute sleep device sanitizer, and a moisturizing /hydrating nasal gel have in common? They’re all used to help sleep apnea sufferers get a sound night’s sleep. And they’re certain to be among discussion topics – along with latest research on sleep -- during the February 3 edition of ‘CPAP Chat,’ the world’s only virtual support group for people with sleep apnea (or anyone who thinks they may have it). The free monthly session, now in its second year, attracts participants from many states who exchange sleep tips, ask questions of guest experts, and share sleep-related anecdotes.
The ‘CPAP Chat’ February edition will be held Wednesday, February 3 from 7 to 8 pm (ET). Sessions (www.cpapchat.org) are anonymous and open to all.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of the largest health issues facing America today, yet the vast majority of sufferers remain undiagnosed. Approximately 43 million people suffer from sleep-disordered breathing. Snoring is a major indicator of of sleep apnea, and is often the tipping point for people to have a sleep test.
