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

Stroke and Sleep Apnea Video

Thanks for the Press!

"Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person." - Mother Teresa

So many people get a CPAP delivered to them, become frustrated and then give up. Others never even come to the realization that
they have a common, chronic sleep disorder called Sleep Apnea --
they think it's their lot in life to be tired, irritable,
miserable, depressed. One thing that is certain is that the outlook
does not have to be so grim. Many people have successfully treated
their Sleep Apnea through CPAP or other means and have turned
around their lives.

This forum was started by Mike and other
individuals who have sleep apnea and want to provide a friendly,
open and inclusive forum to discuss anything and everything related
to sleep apnea, a vastly under-diagnosed and commonly misunderstood
condition.

If you want to wait for "experts" to give you the information and resources you need, this is not the place for
you. If, however, you are an expert who puts your patients first or
you are a patient ready to rely on yourself and the collective
wisdom of a vibrant, intelligent community of individuals who have
sleep apnea, and who recognize the importance of treating it
properly, you've come to the right place. It's a place to ask
questions and to answer the questions of others, to find out what
works and what doesn't --- tips and tricks for managing CPAP and
other treatment options. It's also a place where we can get to get
to know each other. So ask a question, answer a question, post your
picture or share with us your journey with sleep apnea. But most
important, get involved. It's your health and nobody is better
equipped than you to get it back on track.

Didgeridoo for Sleep Apnea

Can playing a musical instrument, the Didgeridoo, help treat Sleep Apnea? Sounds like a gimmick, but there's actually some credible scientific evidence showing exactly that. The Didgeridoo appears to strengthen muscles in the airway, reducing the likelihood of their collapse and obstruction. For some serious scientific evidence on the effectiveness of the Didgeridoo in the treatment of Sleep Apnea, check out PubMed and the… Continue

What is Sleep Apnea?

What Is Sleep Apnea?



Here's a simple response to the question of what is sleep apnea: sleep apnea is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep.



Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They often occur 5 to 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound.



Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition… Continue

HIPAA Privacy Rule Must Die

The Problem

The HIPAA Privacy Rule must die. Since its inception in 2003, the HIPAA Privacy Rule has been invoked by health care providers not to protect us patients as Congress originally intended, but rather as a crutch for health care providers to fall back on when they have an interest, be it laziness, financial, incompetence or whatever, in making it more difficult for patients to gain control over our own health care decisions.
