What is a CPAP machine used for?
Many people suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and do not realize it. In simple terms, it means you have something obstructing your nasal passages and making it impossible for you to sleep properly. Common symptoms include snoring and making choking or gasping sounds while asleep.
When physicians diagnose someone with OSA, they often prescribe CPAP therapy. The therapy enables you to sleep soundly by getting the oxygen you need while sleeping. You wake more rested, have more energy, and are more mentally focused.
That helps you to get through the day in better shape. CPAP therapy also helps treat cardiovascular disease and chronic high blood pressure, and helps patients manage stroke risks.
How CPAP therapy works
A CPAP machine gives you continual positive airway pressure (CPAP). The steady, gentle airflow stops your airway from collapsing while asleep. That makes it easier for you to breathe and provide a good supply of oxygen in your blood flow.
The increased oxygen level in your blood over eight hours of slumber makes a big difference in how well-rested you feel.

A CPAP machine processes a lot of fluid throughout weeks of nightly use. That makes it important to clean and maintain your CPAP machine properly to prevent illness or depleted operation. The Soclean CPAP cleaner and sanitizer kills all bacteria and germs.
That helps to keep the CPAP motor, hose and mask sanitized, clean and providing many more nights of good, restful slumber. When maintained and cleaned properly, a CPAP machine is a great tool for ensuring a good night’s sleep, followed by a productive day.
