Snoring, Sleep Apnoea, CPAP and sleepQ+
“I am a very heavy snorer and have chronic severe sleep apnoea. I have been using CPAP for some 15 years. This therapy, while generally effective has some unpleasant side effects. In particular it is very difficult to stop mouth breathing at night. I originally used a nasal mask with a chin strap to keep my mouth closed. This was relatively effective at the lower CPAP pressure I required 15 years ago. As I grew older, the pressure needed to increase and as a result my mouth breathing increased. This meant that my therapy was not as effective as it should have been, I started to have regular sinus congestion and my throat became very dry during the night, leading to frequent waking to drink water, and subsequent night trips to the toilet. To alleviate these problems I changed to a full face mask. This improved the effectiveness of the therapy but resulted in more sinus congestion, more dry throat and more trips to the bathroom at night. I tried taping my mouth closed but found that the tape damaged the skin around my lips after a few nights, so I discontinued its use. Then I met the inventor of sleepQ+. After listening to the story behind sleepQ+ I was keen to try the product. After the first night of use I woke the next morning without having had a dry throat, without frequent trips to the bathroom and with reduced sinus congestion. I now rarely get sinus congestion at night. I also found after using it for a few weeks that I could reduce my CPAP pressure as I was no longer losing pressure through mouth breathing. I have now used it for about 2 years and find that these benefits have continued. I have never slept a night without using CPAP for the last 15 years and now never sleep a night without applying sleepQ+ as well. I thoroughly recommend this product.
