Like most people, those that live with sleep apnea desire to have an active lifestyle. That means being effective at work and play with activities such as traveling for work and pleasure, going on vacation, camping and other activities. For those with sleep apnea that utilize CPAP therapy as their form of treatment, these activities can often lead to them leaving their CPAP machine behind due to issues such as power requirements and portability.
Issues of portability in terms of the space that a CPAP machine can demand as well as a desire to keep their bedrooms from looking like a hospital room make portability and design highly important issues for almost every CPAP therapy patient. Consequently, there are many health and lifestyle benefits to utilizing a portable but full-featured CPAP machine like the Z1 CPAP machine every night.
If you are on CPAP therapy, it is likely that you know how the Z1 CPAP machine can be instrumental in helping to reduce the chances of long-term health risks. These chronic conditions that can be developed or exacerbated by untreated sleep apnea include high blood pressure, stroke and other conditions of the heart and circulatory system. In addition to having a highly beneficial impact on these potentially life threatening conditions, there are numerous short-term benefits to CPAP therapy with the Z1 CPAP machine.
Although not every person with sleep apnea snores, a great many do. Snoring is an indication of the collapsing airway in the back of the throat, which, when it becomes severe, leads to a complete cutoff of air intake. This leads to the apneic event where the brain wakes the body due to the loss of air intake. When this happens as many as hundreds of times a night, the person is unable to get the needed restorative sleep for good health.
Low energy, lethargy and particularly excessive daytime sleepiness are the most noticeable effects of untreated sleep apnea. Utilizing a Z1 CPAP machine for the recommended minimum of four to five hours every night can diminish or even eliminate the apneic events, thereby allowing the person to get a full, restful and restorative night’s sleep. Consequently, most patients find that they are no longer sleepy during the day and they are much more mentally alert. Not only does this have a profound impact on a person’s ability to do their job effectively where their safety or the safety of others may be at risk, they enjoy a much improved quality of life.
