CPAP & Dry Mouth

In recent months, I have developed extreme dry mouth as a result of the CPAP.  I am a mouth breather when using CPAP.Recently, I saw an advertisement for the symptoms of dry mouth, but as usual, when I need the information to have a discussion with both my primary care  physician and my dentist I haven't seen the ad. Has anyone else seen the ad and can anyone remember the info in the ad?Thanks in advance,DanSee More

It should be easier working with dogs/cats (with their shorter life spans) to get some answers regarding the question of OSA = AD. I would think a vet school might jump at the chance to take on the project. When proven, I can see the animal PAP machines and masks flying off the shelves because nothing will stand in the way of an devoted pet lover intent on getting the best for his/her beloved pet. This is in contrast to some of us humans who too often take a less than enthusiastic "la dee da" attitude toward OSA.
There are not any CPAP masks or other interfaces for dogs to my knowledge. Are you listening ResMed? It seems a little far fetched, but how about the dogs doing scuba diving with their water/air tight masks we have seen on the animal channel? And then there is always the possibility of treating with a trach with a plugged stent.
If your dog or cat snores, then in my opinion he/she is at risk for CDS or what is equivalent to Alzheimer's Disease in humans. It is time to find out exactly what is going on and if what I suspect proves to be true, then we must do whatever it takes to put a stop to it.

My little dog snores so loud I thought my husband was snoring right through his CPAP...nope, it was the little doggie girl under the bed. The vet said that dogs throats get loose with age and collapse, sound familiar? I don't think she will let me strap a CPAP to her little muzzle.

To be honest, yeah, i was just messing around / joking. But I like the way you are thinking about this Dr. Jones. I'll read the link you gave us. Very interesting.

She doesn't look all that thrilled with your intervention, Mike! I'm just sayin'

Mike, I assume the mask and head gear around your dog were just props for the effect of humor in the photo. But I have been wondering for some time do snoring dogs have sleep apnea and if so what are the long term effects. Do they suffer the same health disasters that we do? Do they have what might be the equivalent of Alzheimer's Disease?
I googled the question and found out that sleep apnea is common in dogs and cats. Not too surprising to me was the finding that both cats and dogs suffer from a medical condition known as canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (CDS) which causes disorientation, confusion, memory loss and personality changes that are very similar to Alzheimer's disease in humans. Canine Cognitive Dysfunction is sometimes referred to as "old dog syndrome", "brain aging", "doggie dementia" or "senility" according to Sandy Moyer Beta amyloid plaques, similar to those in AD patients, are found in brain specimens.
Could OSA in animals cause what is equivalent to Alzheimer's Disease? I believe so. Here is something to ponder: When canine and feline lovers learn that OSA is the cause of CDS how long do you think to take them to get treatment for their pets? Will the veterinarians be the first to make the association of OSA to AD? Will they beat the medical establishment to the discovery which will lead to the end of AD in both humans and other animals? It's going to get interesting. Oh, and what about the other animals in the animal kingdom? I boggles the mind.

Mine snores too - it's comforting when the hubby is out of town.

What a good puppy for letting you put that on her. Now only if there was a way to help puppies when they snore.
