Why CPAP treatment is so important during the pandemic?
It isn’t a secret that sleep apnea treatment is extremely important, especially during the pandemic. But, why this is the case? First of all, sleep has a huge effect on the immune system. If you sleep well, and you sleep enough (8-10 hours per night) you will recover, rest and you will regain energy. All of this means that your immune system will be more efficient and more resilient.
Sleep is one of three pillars of health (food, activity, and sleep). If sleep is poor, then we can expect countless issues and additional problems with the body and with how it reacts to viruses and bacteria. This is the main reason why you need to pay close attention to the therapy and the cleaning process of your CPAP equipment.
It is important to add that CPAP treatment is even more important during the pandemic. You must continue using it at all costs and you must not stop the treatment! Some studies claim that CPAP therapy can increase the COVID19 virus spreading, but there are very little data on that. In reality, there are no major issues here. The only addition is if you sleep with a partner. During the pandemic, you may want to sleep alone while using CPAP.
