A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine is often prescribed for those suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. While it might not be needed for mild cases, but it is absolutely recommended for those suffering from severe cases of obstructive sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea has the potential to cause severe long-term health complications. Obstructive sleep apnea reduces the intake of oxygen in the body as the airway is periodically blocked, stopping regular breathing patterns. This leads to visible symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, and memory loss that can impair day-to-day functioning.
Additionally, if sleep apnea is left untreated, it can lead to cardiovascular complications such as heart arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease while at the same time increasing the risk of stroke. These are significant life-threatening conditions which could lead to hospitalization or death.
The BPL Harmony CPAP device provides continuous airway pressure, preventing it from becoming obstructed. The device performs an essential function for the body and goes a long way towards preventing the health conditions mentioned above. To conclude a CPAP device helps performs a life-saving function and, should be used as prescribed by a doctor.
