What are the Risks of Untreated Sleep Apnea?
Congratulations to you for taking the first step to getting a good night’s sleep.
That’s significant because sleep apnea is a serious condition. In addition to leaving you feeling excessively tired during the day, it can cause morning headaches, irritability and depression. It has also been associated with a number of other significant medical conditions including:
High blood pressure
Heart disease/ heart attack
Type 2 diabetes
Driving and work related accidents
Ordering Sleep Supplies
Your CPAP / BIPAP’s accessory equipment is a lot like other frequently used health products, such as your toothbrush or a razor: it deteriorates, ceases to function optimally, and can get germy and unsanitary.
It’s important to replace your CPAP / BIPAP equipment to make sure your machine is as clean, effective, and comfortable as possible. However, unlike a toothbrush, the CPAP / BIPAP equipment may not look worn even though it needs to be replaced.
It’s important to change your equipment following a schedule:
- Mask – Every 3 months
- Headgear / Chin Strap – Every 6 months
- CPAP / BIPAP Device – Every 3 to 7 years
- Tubing – Every 3 months
- Cushion / Pillows – Every 2 weeks
- Filters – Every 2 weeks
- Water Chamber – Every 6 months
Petersen Medical Makes It Easy
Petersen Medical has a mask, tubing and filter replacement program with in-home, in-office and remote after hour set-ups available. We provide ongoing patient support for compliance and efficacy. And if anything ever goes wrong, we have 24-hour on-call support. A Petersen Medical customer service associate will reach out to you every three months to make sure you have the right products and insurance authorization.
How to Get Started with Sleep Therapy
Visit your physician for a face-to-face examination and discuss your sleep options.
During your exam, your physician will ask you about your quality of sleep as well as other health-related issues. If it is appropriate, your doctor will recommend a sleep evaluation.
Your doctor will perform a sleep evaluation and diagnose your breathing issues.
Most sleep evaluations are conducted at a sleep clinic where doctors can evaluate your breathing while you are sleeping. After the sleep evaluation, your doctor may recommend equipment to help with sleep apnea.
