Noted Researcher Discusses Link Between Sleep Apnea and Alzheimer's Disease 
Participants from 9 States Join in 'CPAP Chat'
"CPAP treatment of sleep apnea may delay progression of cognitive impairment," Dr. Ricardo Osorio, a world-renowned expert on the correlation between sleep apnea and various forms of dementia, discussed as the featured guest during the August edition of 'CPAP Chat,' the world's only virtual support group for people with sleep apnea and for health care professionals.

He added, " The presence of sleep disordered breathing is associated with an earlier age of cognitive decline."   (CPAP is the therapy of choice to treat sleep apnea - an acronym for continuous positive airway pressure.) These are among conclusions in a study co-authored by Dr. Osorio that appeared in the journal Neurology.

I'm new to CPAP therapy and wondering what type of mask is right for me? 

Using the right mask is essential to the success of your treatment. Size, fit, and comfort are the most import considerations. If the mask doesn't fit, isn't comfortable, or doesn't meet your breathing needs, it's not likely that you will be compliant with CPAP therapy. It should form a good seal on your face so that air doesn't leak (this would be uncomfortable and make your therapy less effective). A nasal mask which covers the nose is the most common, however, some people breathe through their mouth when they sleep. In this case, a full face mask that covers both the nose and mouth is the best option. Another option would be a nasal mask and chinstrap. This will prevent the jaw from opening during sleep and still provide for effective therapy. Still have more questions? Contact us!
