• If you move around in bed a lot, then you are an Active Sleeper. This causes a lot of CPAP mask problems and CPAP mask uncomfortable issues.
• If you are not sure you are an Active Sleeper, just ask your bed partner.
An example of this is if you start of in one side of the bed and end up on another part or, the blankets and pillows are thrown all over the place, or the bed sheets are pulled away from the mattress.
The active sleeper tends to have high incidence of leaks simply because in your movement you knock the cpap mask out of place.
• If this is you, don’t despair there is a number of very good masks that we have seen work very well for you.
• Keep in mind , one of the reasons sleep apnea patients move around in bed a lot is because their sleep apnea is not actively been resolved. Your body will make you move around a lot with the hopes that you will wake you up enough to make your shift your body position so you breathe. This is a protective mechanism.
• The masks we are recommending are the ones our active sleeping patients have reported having continued success with.
