5 Tips to Help Fight Allergy Season

Back to school or back to sick? Feels the same this time of year. Kids at home or not, conveniently the stores seem to replenish their supply of tissues just in time for your eyes to start itching and watering. If you have Sleep Apnea, there are five great tips below that will help ensure you’re staying healthy and sleeping well through these next few months.

1) No matter which mask type user you are, having a full face mask on standby is a smart idea. These masks are great if you have congestion and are unable to breathe through your nose.

Not sure which full face mask is best for you? Many of these masks come with Free Return Insurance, which will allow you to return them for free for any reason within 30 days.

2) With so many extra germs in the air, be proactive in fighting off sickness by keeping your equipment extra clean. Replace your filters more often, wipe down your mask daily, and do a thorough cleansing of your CPAP tubing. A video explaining the different ways to clean your equipment can be found, here.

3) Heated humidification can reduce congestion. If you’re not sure which humidifier is compatible with your machine, use our Part Finder. For added comfort, try a heated hose. If your machine does not come with one, the ComfortLine Heated Hose Kit is compatible with most machines.

4) Keep your sinuses clear and take in the soothing scents of this Aromatherapy kit. Reduce discomfort in your nasal passages caused by sinuses and congestion with the NasoGel Spray.

5) Sometimes the best defense against sickness is great, comfortable rest. Try the Breathe-free HypoAllergenic CPAP Pillow which is designed keep away house allergens and is great for stomach, face, and side sleepers.

  1. Im waiting for a sleep study but Im damn sure I have this. How long for is anhetor question. Anyway Im not overweight and I swim over 3-4km a week and work 13 hrs a day in a physical job. Wake up grasping for air a few times a night and dream excessively. Possible narcolepsy combined with Apnea. Yes I am very tired but Im very fit too. Cant wait till I can sleep properly and finally wake up refreshed.

    the last 3 days, when i wake up it takes me about 30 minutes to an hour to catch my breath, then i am short of breath all day. i need help. i have used a cpap for 8 years, this is the first time this has happened.

  4. Hi! I am studying up all I can because of nasal congestion issues. I am a new snap user. I currently use a nasal pillow and heated nasal humidification level 4. Why is normal saline not recommended for use in the humidifier?

      Normal saline causes the material to break down faster. For more information, you may contact our experts at 1-800-356-5221.
