Sleep Apnea is a common but serious medical condition which interrupts the airways during sleep causing significant reduction in fresh air flow to vital organs. The condition occurs when the muscles in the throat become floppy and relaxed during sleep, which narrows the breathing passage and disrupts the access to oxygen. Sleep Apnea patients use their CPAP products daily and therefore require them to be highly comfortable and reliable. This is why the CPAP Company ResMed, develops their CPAP Masks, CPAP Headgear and Anti-Snoring Chin Straps using Biomed’s Medical Grade Fabrics.
CPAP Masks are a crucial component of CPAP treatment for individuals who suffer from Sleep Apnea. The use of masks during Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is key to effectively treating sufferers of Sleep Apnea. CPAP Companies design masks to use pressurised air in order to avoid blocked passageways and ensure comfortable breathing during sleep. Additionally, some sufferers use CPAP Chin Straps to help improve the effectiveness of CPAP therapy as the CPAP Chin Strap wraps around the head and cradles the jaw. This is important as it keeps the patients’ mouth closed during sleep, reducing snoring considerably.
However, using CPAP Masks, CPAP Chin Straps and CPAP Accessories for long periods during sleep can often increase perspiration and the build up of oils in the skin, leading to the growth of bacteria. Some patients then experience symptoms like skin irritation and breakouts in the areas around the mask as a result. In order to prevent these issues and ensure maximum comfort when using CPAP products for long periods, CPAP Manufacturers implement high quality, Medical Grade Fabrics within the CPAP Chin Straps and CPAP Accessories.
