Congratulations on your success using CPAP, you are one of the 40% of patients with great compliance. I hope that you have found the treatments to be helpful and that you are feeling better and living longer as a result. One thing to keep in mind, depending on how long it has been since you last saw a doctor, is that recent advances in technology have resulted in much more efficient equipment and more comfortable mask options. Since you are already compliant with your treatment, you may be just fine, but it doesn’t hurt to be evaluated every year or two just to make sure you are taking advantage of the best solutions possible to help ensure compliance going forward. Old CPAP equipment does not automatically adjust as well as the newer models and may lack humidification options that allow patients to be more comfortable in a wider variety of settings. The latest equipment even allows data from your CPAP machine to be accessed via the cloud so that your doctor can better assess the success of your treatment while giving patients direct access to their personal sleep data via a smartphone app. In some cases, the doctor may even elect to repeat a sleep study to ensure that you are getting the maximum benefit from your treatment. If you would like to find out more information about recent advances in sleep disorder treatments, check out our research pages on our website and if you think that you are ready to consider reviewing your treatment options with a doctor, then please consider scheduling an appointment from the homepage on our website so that you can remain complaint for years to come.
