Sleep Apnea CPAP Max Pillow

by Marry Aaron Medical Assistant

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which you stop breathing often while you sleep. Sleep apnea can be central, obstructive, or a mix of the two. Most people have obstructive sleep apnea, which happens when the muscles in the throat relax too much and cause the windpipe to collapse and block the airway. Sleep apnea can be treated with anything from lifestyle changes to surgery. The CPAP Max pillow is one of the most common non-invasive ways to treat sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea Since snoring is one of the most common signs of sleep apnea, the CPAP Max pillow is designed for people who snore. Sleep apnea CPAP Max pillows are made to support the neck, keep patients from rolling onto their backs (which can make snoring and sleep apnea worse), cradle the head, lengthen the neck and keep the tongue from blocking the airway, and help side sleepers by taking pressure off their shoulders and arms.

Several companies say their sleep apnea CPAP Max pillows do all of the above, but the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has only approved the healthcare CPAP Max pillow as an over-the-counter treatment for sleep apnea.

At first glance, the healthcare sleep apnea CPAP Max pillow looks a little strange. This sleep apnea CPAP Max pillow is shaped like a triangle with two layers instead of a solid rectangle. It looks more like a padded boomerang than a CPAP Max pillow. But this CPAP Max pillow is good for treating sleep apnea because of how it is shaped. The shape is meant to keep you sleeping on your side. The main sleeping surface is made up of two sloped surfaces and a flat lower surface in the middle.

The Sleep Apnea CPAP Max pillow has a training arm sling at the bottom of each triangle. To use the CPAP Max pillow right, you should lie on either side and put your arm in the space under the pillow. Your arm should be out in front of you while you sleep, and your head should be on the same side as the arm.

At first, you may use the training arm sling to keep this position by putting your arm in the space between the CPAP Max pillow and the sling. You can use a body CPAP Max pillow to hug over or put between your legs to help you stay in the side sleeping position for more sleep compliance. Using the sleep apnea CPAP Max pillow in this way pulls the jaw forward, which keeps the tongue from falling back and blocking the throat.

Some people are not good candidates for the HEALTHCARE CPAP Max sleep apnea pillow. People with severe sleep apnea won't get better by using the HEALTHCARE sleep apnea CPAP Max pillow by itself. People who are overweight and have a body mass index (BMI) of over 30 will not get the same relief from snoring as thinner people.

The HEALTHCARE sleep apnea CPAP Max pillow wears out like any other CPAP Max pillow, so it should be fluffed every so often. The people who make the healthcare CPAP Max pillow also say that the sleep apnea CPAP Max pillow should be replaced every year

Talk to your doctor before buying the healthcare sleep apnea CPAP Max pillow or any other sleep apnea CPAP Max pillow.
