Common CPAP Problems
CPAP treatment may cause side
effects in some people. These side effects
include a dry or stuffy nose, irritated skin
on your face, sore eyes, and headaches. If
your CPAP isn't properly adjusted, you may
get stomach bloating and discomfort while
wearing the mask.
If you're having trouble and
are tired of CPAP side effects, work with
your sleep specialist, his or her nursing
staff, and the CPAP technician. Together,
you can take steps to reduce these side
effects. These steps include adjusting the
CPAP settings or the size/fit of the mask,
or adding moisture to the air as it flows
through the mask. A nasal spray may relieve
a dry, stuffy, or runny nose.
There are many different
kinds of CPAP machines and masks. Be sure to
tell your doctor if you're not happy with
the type you're using. He or she may suggest
switching to a different kind that may work
better for you.
People who have severe sleep
apnea symptoms generally feel much better
once they begin treatment with CPAP.
If you are sick of CPAP
treatment, it may be time to reevaluate your
equipment and treatment options. You may
find that a small change can make a big
difference in the way you feel about your

One of the most non-invasive
CPAP sleep alternatives is positional
therapy. Positional therapy is altering your
sleeping position. This can be achieved
using several methods, such as specially
made shirts that force you to sleep on you
side and foam wedges that put the patient on
an incline. The goal of positional therapy
is to reduce the effects of gravity on the
tissue in the throat, thereby reducing the
chance of the airway collapsing or becoming
obstructed. Positional therapy is most
effective when used to treat obstructive
sleep apnea, as central sleep apnea is
caused by the brain's inability to properly
induce normal breathing. However, when used
in conjunction with other treatments,
positional therapy can aid in the treatment
of central sleep apnea.
An alternative to CPAP is
BiPAP. BiPAP stands for bi-level positive
airway pressure, which is similar in that it
creates positive airway pressure to aid you
in breathing. However, BiPAP monitors when
the you exhale, and reduces the positive
pressure to ease your breathing further.
This is equally as effective in treating
obstructive and central as CPAP, and allows
the comfort of easier exhalation when you
are discomforted by the constant pressure
that the CPAP administers. BiPAP is equally
ineffective in the treatment of complex
sleep apnea, however, and usually creates
further complications in a similar manner as
Another alternative is
similar to BiPAP and is called ASV, or
adaptive servo-ventilation. ASV is an
experimental alternative to a CPAP and is
currently being used primarily to treat
complex sleep apnea. ASV calculates the
patient's average breathing and then adjusts
the pressure to match, normalizing erratic
breathing by forcing the patient to
ventilate steadily. ASV has been approved by
the FDA, but is still considered to be an
experimental method, as few if no results of
treatment have been published in the
One of the most dramatic
alternatives is surgery. This can involve
removal of excess tissue, located in the
back of the throat, the base of the tongue,
etc., as well as tonsillectomies and
adenoidectomies. Surgery is usually
performed with the intent of creating a
larger airway and therefore less chance of
Although a popular method of
treatment has many viable alternatives,
depending on the wants and needs of
individual patients. Each alternative has
its positive aspects and its drawbacks, each
to be taken into consideration. Although
various treatments can be quite effective,
there isn't one solution that is for
everyone, but the various alternatives are
more than adequate to satisfy most patients.
