If you’ve watched T.V. of late, you may have noticed an advertisement promoting a CPAP business that claims to offer members fresh mail-order masks via postal mail every 30 days. According to the commercial, since these masks are flexible and new, they won’t leak as much – which supposedly means they are able to quiet the maddening noises that often come along with CPAP-use.
Will they really work?
Because these masks can’t be tailored to each patient’s individual facial contours, they aren’t likely to have a great impact on the disturbing nightly noises associated with every other CPAP mask. Even if a patient is fortunate enough to get a mask that fits his or her face well, the product won’t have any effect whatsoever on pressure sores or the general sense of claustrophobia that sometimes comes with CPAP-use.
Though CPAP may work for certain patients, it’s not for everyone. For a different treatment, contact Dr. Siegel's office today. Dr. Siegel provides personalized sleep apnea treatment tailored to each of his patient’s individual needs.
