The April 4
meeting will include the following:
· Allergies and CPAP use.
What to do?
Once you get
used to CPAP therapy and come to appreciate how great it makes you feel, you
won't want to miss one single night using it! But what happens if you have
allergies or a cold? The pollen count is very high this year. Having allergies
or a cold is bad enough, but losing sleep because you cannot use CPAP makes it
even worse. We will discuss options to help you overcome these allergies and not
have to miss out on a good nights sleep with your CPAP.
· Two new CPAP masks will be
meeting we will discuss two brand new masks that have just come on the market.
We always display every mask that is made, so you know your options. We want to
provide you with the utmost comfort while wearing CPAP. Presented by
Kristina St. Peter-Weaver, RPSGT
· At every A.W.A.K.E.
Support Group meeting you’ll have the
opportunity to see newer model CPAP machines and masks and receive a free mask
fitting if you’d like.
