Follow-up during the first week to new patients initiating their therapy (after first 30 days, it will be a monthly follow up)
You will be given a report of the data recorded on your machine in the first week of use, this will give you as a patient the opportunity to evaluate your own improvement and benefits of the treatment. Then you will be assisted with monthly reports once you are already adapted to the treatment.
These reports will help us to correct in the future situations where therapy is not being performed correctly by changes that arise: such as mask or incorrect mask setting, inappropriate equipment pressure, weight changes, medical conditions and medication changes during the Use of your equipment.
Learn More About Sleep Disorder:
Sleep Apnea or Sleep Disorder, this should the call attention of anyone who doesn't want to be surprised by severe health conditions (Heart Attack or stroke). Sounds very drastic?, Well those are the long-term consequences of depriving of oxygen the most important organ of our body (the brain).
We are the energy that inhabits our brain, which apart from proteins and other elements, is mainly nourished by oxygen. This is why we can stop eating or drinking water for a long time, but we can not stop breathing for more than 6 minutes. Of so many systems in our body, the respiratory system is the most important and most neglected.
Good health begins with a good oxygen saturation, which facilitates a good communication between the 100 billion neurons that act as a communication block facilitating the function of many organs and commands in our body, ordered by the necessities of our brain. At higher oxygen saturation, faster and more effective communication.
It's like putting 60% octane gasoline into a vehicle and then switching it to 100% octane. The difference can be very noticeable.
When we sleep, we go through several states or depths of sleep that disconnect neurological zones that among other things, relaxes our muscular tissues, causing in some people a total or partial blockage of the respiratory tract.
This is why when a patient is under medication that causes greater neurological relaxation (painkillers, anti-depressants, sedatives, sleeping pills, etc.) or anyone under the influence of alcohol, we can notice presence or a large increase in obstructions of the airway (louder snoring).
These partial or total obstructions are the cause of the reactivation of neurological zones that must remain off, causing a great drainage of energy throughout the sleep. That is why according to the severity of the obstruction, we feel completely depressed and tired.
Tiredness, depression, mood swings are the immediate effects of this condition. But even worse degeneration of the cardiovascular system on a large scale are the subsequent effects. As a defense, the brain under alert condition during each respiratory event (reduction of air flow or respiratory arrest) sends a strong signal to a cell in the upper part of the heart, ordering an acceleration of the heart rhythm in order to bring blood faster, satiating the fall Of saturation caused by the respiratory event.
On a sleepy night we can have an average of 600 respiratory events according to the severity of the condition, leading to immediate cardiovascular disease and possible heart attacks or in a long-term, a stroke (600 events, for 365 days, for X years , develop a widening of the entire cardiovascular system reducing the thickness of the walls of veins, arteries, blood vessels, among others).
These respiratory events described above are called Obstructive events, but to complicate matters, there is another type of event called Centrals. This is the worst of them because they lack the neurological signal in charge of the respiratory cycle sent to the diaphragm and intercostal muscles. This condition is reached by effects of medication, neurological damage or lack of chemical balance in the brain.
Any condition, anyone who snores or sunk tired during the day, should be properly diagnosed and treated.
The only way to be truly diagnosed is through a polysomnography or sleep study. Because this medicine is still so young, nowadays anyone can have a sleep study at a laboratory, which creates a lot of confusion about where to go to get a study of this type, with the technical competence and the appropriate equipment. The most important thing is the technician credentials because if they are not registered in sleep medicine or don't have a vast experience in the field, could compromise the information collected in the study, due to the lack of knowledge, the incorrect measures for the location of elemental areas of the Brain and not being able to perform a correct reading and qualification of respiratory events would lead to a bad diagnosis.
In short, this condition is one of the worst because it only happens in deep sleep, where we can't realize the problems that occured to us and cause a chain reaction of anatomical problems which can only be controlled and not eradicated. So the diagnosis and use of the right equipment that constantly maintains the open airway, is imperative.
Once the treatment is started (sleeping with CPAP) it is very important to understand that this equipment should be used on all occasions where you sleep (sleep at home, nap, friend house, country home, traveling), There can't ever be another Sleep without the use of equipment. Only this way can you gain back a better health, leading to many years of great life.
Remember that our Brain is the most important organ in our body (the master and commander) and the healthier he is, the better and healthier all other organs will be.
