10 Benefits of CPAP Therapy That Will Make You Love Your CPAP

An estimated 25 million Americans suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea. However, current research results show only 60% of those individuals are actually using a CPAP machine every night. Adapting to CPAP therapy can be challenging, but it’s important to remember sleep apnea is a dangerous condition that does not get better on its own. There are many CPAP benefits that you’ll get if you regularly use your CPAP.

Here are ten CPAP benefits you may not know about!

1. Feel Refreshed and Refueled

Feel a resurgence of energy. After only a few weeks of use, CPAP therapy may improve your energy, providing you with a fresh lease on life!

2. Love Your Heart

For people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, maintaining a healthy heart can start with CPAP therapy. Sleeping disorders often manifest other underlying issues such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

When people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea are treated using CPAP therapy, they may attain significantly lower blood pressure, allowing some patients to cut back on their blood pressure medications. There are many things we can do to keep our heart healthy, and for Obstructive Sleep Apnea sufferers, CPAP therapy should be at the top of the list!

3. Struggling With Your CPAP Machine? Try APAP

No Joke! Some users may benefit exceptionally well from using an APAP machine instead of a CPAP machine! Do you sleep in different positions during the night, have difficulties falling asleep at high pressures, or experience bloating?

An APAP machine adjusts the ideal pressure based on the detection of the patient’s breathing patterns providing the appropriate pressure for a comfortable night’s sleep.

4. Allure Beauty from the Beast

Turn your restless nights into productive beauty sleep. Effective treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea may contribute to improved facial appearance. New research suggests patients who practiced continuous CPAP therapy reduced puffiness and redness in their faces contributing to a more alert and youthful look. This one CPAP benefit you may not have heard of, but you’ll be glad it’s there.

5. Dodge Your Spouse’s “Black Belt” Tendencies

Have you ever felt your spouse seems to be honing their “kicking” skills on you while you’re sleeping? It could be due to your endless snoring, which is wreaking havoc on their quality of sleep!

Snoring is often due to Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and without effective therapy, you may not be the only one fatigued—it’s likely your bed partner is too. Start a bedtime truce and prevent your spouse from going Bruce Lee on you by engaging in steady CPAP therapy!

6. Enhance Intimacy

Intimate relationships play a big part in nurturing a healthy lifestyle. Regrettably, sleep apnea patients may experience a lack of intimacy and loss of libido. The good news is, studies have shown that ongoing use of CPAP therapy may significantly improve sexual function and satisfaction.

Don’t let Obstructive Sleep Apnea deprive you of intimate moments, keep up with your CPAP routine, and get back in the game!

7. Traveling Made Easy

Allowing our body and mind to replenish itself is essential. Breaking out of the daily routine by taking a vacation to see the world and/or enjoy time with family can be wonderful. But, whether your traveling for leisure or work, it is important to remember your CPAP machine. Fortunately, there have been great advancements in travel-sized CPAP machines.

The AirMini AutoSet Travel CPAP Machine is one of the lightest and most portable machines. It can easily be added to carry on luggage or a tote making CPAP therapy easy to maintain on the go! Bring your machine on a trip to make sure you get the benefits of using your CPAP and are rested and ready to make the most of your vacation!

8. Save Money

How? Simple. Sleep apnea increases the risk of an array of diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, memory loss, depression, and other ailments. Controlling other existing diseases may help decrease visits to doctors and hospitals, and possibly lessen the need for prescriptions – saving you time and money.

9. Better Diabetic Control

Sleep apnea is often a common denominator in people with type 2 diabetes. Steady CPAP therapy can help in controlling diabetes by reducing insulin resistance leading to more stable blood glucose levels.

Esra Tasali, MD, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Chicago Department of Medicine, explains, “..CPAP treatment of sleep apnea across the entire night can improve glucose control and may in some patients have as much of an effect as an oral anti-diabetic medication.”

10. Prevent Hearing Loss

Is your spouse frustrated at having to repeat what they say to you? Are you fed up with your spouse getting angry at you for not hearing properly and snoring loudly? A recent study showed people with sleep apnea have a 90% higher risk of hearing loss.

There is a solution: persistent use of CPAP therapy may reduce or even prevent snoring, which causes noise trauma and hearing impairment. Implement steady CPAP therapy and ease the tensions in your home!

DISCLAIMER: It’s important to consult a doctor about the ways that CPAP interacts with your other medical conditions. Under no circumstances should you discontinue any medication or treatment without involving your doctor first. While treating sleep apnea has many benefits, only your doctor will know for sure how those benefits will impact you.


  1. It all sounds wonderful if only I didn’t have so many problems from my Cpap maybe I could enjoy the benefits.
    My air pressure was recently raised from a ten to thirteen to eighteen. I’ve tried tons of different masks. The full face leaves marks on my face also irritation. It makes my mouth severely dry. It leaks air through out the night. My tongue is totally dried my cheeks stick to my jaw. My teeth are falling out due to the dryness. I have a nasal mask that would work wonderfully if I wasn’t a mouth breather. Chin straps don’t work to keep your mouth closed. Just paid for a new nasal mask with mouth piece I almost lost my front teeth from the mouth piece . plus it makes my nostrils feel like someone lite a fire in them. Not to mention my throat also feels like hot lava going down if I try to swallow. .I’m scheduled to have my four top front teeth extracted and replaced with a partial problems is I’m afraid if I pay the 3 thousand dollars for the partial then have the teeth that hold my partial fall out also due to dryness. I’ll be out all that money for nothing. Now after all that was is the answer?. Moisturizer not it just disturbs my sleep to have to be applying it. The discs that that you stick to the roof of your mouth are not the answer either as there is no saliva in my mouth for it to dissolve. I have hypertension, depression and recently diabetes. All so have had two strokes. Can some one please help?
    A friend suggested I just stop using the Cpap that is a solution if I have a death wish. I’m at a complete loss seems I’ve tried everything . Hoping and praying there is still a solution I may have missed.

  2. I have been using my nasal CPAP machine for over a month and have no benefits. I often wonder what others get from theirs.
    It doesn’t bother me at all while in use, however the following day the mucus in my nose is quite hard and difficult to remove.

      I am so grateful for my CPAC machine, knowing the issues my doctor was very concerned that if I had not got a CPAC machine I would not be here, hearing that you stop breathing while sleeping is very scary, but receiving the news of how many time is heart retching. I use to wake up more than five times during the night never would get a 8hr. but now I get 8 straight hours and that is amazing for me. I use to stay up not wanted to go lay in my bed because I new what I would endure, but now I can’t wait to go to bed. My CPAC machine has saved my life, literally!

    It took about a month for the C pap machine For me to really take notice. I was snoring horribly and not breathing, night sweats, and waking up every 2 hours to urinate. After a month of using the C pap. All of those symptoms are gone. I had to adjust masks to a full face mask to sleep more comfortably I finally found the mask for me. I recorded myself on my phone sleeping with and without and there is a night and day difference
