Core Products International, experts in continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) products, provide four top tips for those living with sleep apnea.
Recognized as a serious disorder, sleep apnea occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. A person with untreated sleep apnea repeatedly stops breathing while asleep, preventing the brain and body from receiving enough oxygen.
Core Products International provides superior tips to help people live more comfortably and possibly avoid the dangers of the sleep disorder:
1. Watch your weight: According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, roughly half of the people diagnosed with sleep apnea are overweight.* Go to the doctors for regular checkups to ensure you are keeping a healthy weight. Don’t be afraid to discuss a weight loss program with your physician, especially if you carry hereditary risks for sleep apnea.
2. Quit Smoking: According to Mayo Clinic, smokers are three times more likely to have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).** OSA is the more common form of apnea and is caused by a blockage in the airway.
3. Know your family history: If a family member has sleep apnea, relatives may be at an increased risk for the condition as well.**
4. Reduce Alcohol Intake: Similar to smoking, those who consume alcohol excessively can be at a greater risk for sleep apnea. The over indulgence of alcohol causes throat muscles to relax, putting any person at a greater risk for OSA.
Core Products also offers pillows designed specifically for people with sleep apnea who use a CPAP machine. The unique shape of the Mini CPAP Pillow does not interfere with the placement of the CPAP mask and is great for travel while the full size Core CPAP Pillow comes in 3 different heights to fit you best. These pillows helps CPAP users feel more comfortable using their equipment and helps to prevent mask leaks and soreness. Use Discount Code CPAP10 at checkout for 10% off a Core CPAP Pillow.
There is no known cure for sleep apnea, but it is highly treatable with CPAP. For more information on Core CPAP Pillow, please contact Customer Service at 800-365-3047 or info(at)coreproducts(dot)com.
