Six Sleep Apnea Sufferers CPAP May Not Help
Date:11/12/2013

coming up with rules applying to OSA testing for members of the trucking industry, but while the thought is that CPAP will be the first line of defense against exhaustion among such drivers, challenges do exist. Because truckers may sleep in their own bed one night, a motel room the next, and their own cabin after that, the annoyance of lugging around CPAP equipment and setting it up properly renders CPAP ineffective for many people.

2. Persons with Allergies, Sensitive Skin- There are some whose skin becomes splotchy or itchy when they wear a CPAP mask, either because they’re allergic to some substance in the equipment or because they simply have sensitive skin.

A CPAP mask will need to be refitted on a regular basis or else the therapy will fail to achieve success. OSA is frequently associated in this age group with significant dental malocclusion requiring pre-operative orthodontic treatment.

4. Outdoor Enthusiasts- It’s one thing to hook up a CPAP machine in the comfort of one’s home but quite another to lug it along on a camping, rafting, or climbing trip.

Under use of CPAP on a nightly basis (at least 4 hours each night of CPAP use every night is the minimum for effective OSA treatment) can restart the positive feedback loop of chronic fatigue followed by overeating trying to stay alert leading to more weight gain and eventual obesity.
