Today we talked with Viktoriya Dombrovska the founder and Director of Profmed Healthcare Solutions, the leading CPAP company in Toronto and GTA. Profmed Healthcare Solutions helped thousands of people suffering from sleep apnea by providing them with access to effective treatment that can improve their quality of life. Before the introduction of CPAP machines, sleep apnea was often treated with invasive surgical procedures or with less effective treatments, such as positional therapy or oral appliances. The CPAP machine is a highly effective treatment for sleep apnea, and it can significantly improve the quality of life for those who use it regularly.
Sleep apnea is sleep-disordered breathing characterized by a number of involuntary breathing events during a single night of sleep. There are two main types of sleep apnea: obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is classified by an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), which reflects the severity of sleep apnea and is calculated by the number of apneas or hypopneas per hour of sleep. AHI ranges from 0 to > 30, which is severe sleep apnea.
So, how common is sleep apnea? Sleep apnea and other sleep-disordered breathing conditions affects all ages,genders and races .Approximately 3% to 7% of men and around 2% to 5% of women have sleep apnea. Men are twice as likely as women to have sleep apnea. About 26% of adults aged 30 to 70 have obstructive sleep apnea, and though around 20% of children snore, only 1% to 8% of children aged 2 to 8 have sleep apnea. As we age, the rate for sleep apnea increases significantly.
CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy has helped people with sleep apnea in several ways:
- Reduced Symptoms: CPAP therapy is highly effective in reducing the symptoms of sleep apnea, such as loud snoring, interrupted breathing, and daytime sleepiness. By keeping the airway open during sleep, CPAP therapy can eliminate these symptoms and help people get a better night’s sleep.
- Improved Health: Sleep apnea is associated with a range of health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. CPAP therapy can reduce the risk of these complications and improve overall health outcomes.
- Increased Energy: By improving sleep quality, CPAP therapy can increase daytime energy levels and improve cognitive function.
- Enhanced Quality of Life: People who use CPAP therapy report significant improvements in their quality of life, including improved mood, better relationships, and increased productivity.
Overall, CPAP therapy has had a positive impact on the lives of millions of people with sleep apnea, allowing them to live healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives.
A CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine is a medical device used to treat sleep apnea, a condition where a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. The machine works by delivering a constant stream of air pressure to the user’s airway to keep it open and prevent the apnea from occurring.
Here’s how it works:
- The CPAP machine draws in room air and compresses it.
- The compressed air is then delivered through a hose to a mask that is worn over the user’s nose and/or mouth.
- The air pressure from the machine helps to keep the user’s airway open, allowing them to breathe regularly during sleep.
- The machine is typically set to a specific pressure level based on the user’s needs, as determined by a sleep study or other diagnostic test.
- The user must wear the mask and use the machine every night while sleeping to experience the full benefits of the treatment
We talked with Viktoriya about health benefits of using a CPAP Machine
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines are commonly used to treat sleep apnea, a condition that causes pauses in breathing during sleep. Here are some of the benefits of using a CPAP machine:
Improved Quality of Sleep: CPAP therapy helps you get better quality sleep by preventing apnea events that can disrupt your sleep. This means you will wake up feeling more refreshed and energized.
Reduced Risk of Health Complications: Untreated sleep apnea can lead to various health complications such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. CPAP therapy can reduce the risk of developing these conditions by keeping your airways open and improving your breathing during sleep.
Improved Mood and Mental Health: Sleep apnea can cause daytime fatigue, irritability, and mood swings. CPAP therapy can improve your mood and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Increased Energy and Productivity: With better quality sleep and reduced daytime fatigue, you will have more energy to do your daily tasks and be more productive
Better Relationships: Sleep apnea can affect your relationships with your partner and family members due to loud snoring and disruptive sleep patterns. CPAP therapy can improve your sleep and reduce snoring, leading to better relationships.
Overall, CPAP therapy can significantly improve your quality of life by improving your sleep, reducing health risks, and increasing energy and productivity.
