The most common treatment for OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) is Positive Airway Pressure (PAP). The device works to keep your airway open and provide a stream of air through a mask while you sleep. You will feel less sleepy during the day the more you use PAP. To get the best results from PAP therapy, you should use it every night. It is a good idea to use it when napping as well. Going just one night without PAP can have a negative impact on your blood pressure. Next month, we will provide some tips to help you adjust to PAP therapy!
