Benefits of CPAP

It’s not just about better sleep; there’s much more to it than that…

Did you know?

Even if you’re not sleepy, treating your sleep apnoea with CPAP therapy can have many health benefits.1

The health benefits of CPAP

Most people who stick with CPAP therapy to treat their sleep apnoea experience better concentration, less snoring, and more energy to tackle their day.2 The benefits of consistent CPAP therapy is associated with a lower risk of all-cause mortality in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea.3

 

How long before I see a change?

Be patient when you first begin therapy, as it may take your body some time to adjust fully. Some people notice an improvement within a few days, while others may take longer to see or feel an impact. One tip is to keep track of your therapy use and record how you feel during the day. It can help you track the effects of therapy over time and allow you to see your progress. ResMed’s myAir mobile application can help you keep track of how well you are doing.
