It may be helpful to get used to the feel of CPAP by wearing your equipment whilst carrying out an activity that relaxes you e.g., whilst watching television, listening to music or reading a book.
myAir is an app that makes it easy to track your progress and receive encouragement along the way. Every morning, myAir shows you how you slept the night before and gives you a score. Hours of CPAP use, number of apnoeas and mask leaks, number of times you removed your mask – it’s all there on your phone or tablet. myAir also offers free online support, coaching and education. You can download the myAir mobile app on the App Store® and Google Play™.
It is important to clean and maintain your CPAP therapy equipment so it performs well and lasts longer. This can help you have a more comfortable treatment experience.
