CPAP No Mask Nasal Interface System

Luckily, CPAP Pro has already made sleep apnea patients’ lives better by introducing the CPAP no mask nasal interface system. Sure enough, a lot of blog articles have already been written about how much more convenient it is to undergo CPAP treatment through this technology.

Bracing for Some Inconvenience

While CPAP Pro has already developed ways on how to make the treatment less painless, it is still not entirely convenient. If you have a patient who is experiencing some inconvenience in using the product, you can help him/her by knowing how to deal with the product issues. Search for blogs about proper use of CPAP mask without headgear, and see detailed ways on how to help your patient.

Maintaining the CPAP Pro Device

Since CPAP Pro product is a bit smaller than its predecessors with head gears and straps, keeping it is a little bit more convenient because it requires less space. However, since it’s a lot smaller, caregivers are advised to keep the product in a safer and higher place to avoid accidentally sitting on it or putting heavier objects on top of it when placed in places like chairs, sofa, or tables.

Regularly cleaning the device is also necessary. This is quite an obvious tip, but the next item will tell you that this is not another cliché to ignore.

Dental Care is Necessary, too

While the main reason for using nasal CPAP mask without headgear is sleep apnea, it will help the patient a lot if you will also take extra care of his/her oral health. This is because certain dental conditions, if not immediately treated, can hinder the patient from using CPAP Pro’s Boil n’ Bite mouthpiece, which is a component of its devices.

Hence, as mentioned earlier, regularly cleaning the device is important since it goes in and out of the patient’s mouth and nose.

Other Factors

Sleep apnea is never an easy condition to have. Hence, patient’s emotional well-being is one important factor to consider when nursing them. Be understanding in attending to their needs, especially when it comes to using and maintain the CPAP treatment device. Frequent encouragement is also crucial during the first days of using CPAP Pro devices. Keep reminding the patient, especially if he/she experiences small inconvenience, that getting used to the new device won’t take long.

Further reading will also help you if you are currently nursing or expecting to nurse a sleep apnea patient. There is nothing better than familiarizing yourself about more information related to your patient’s conditions. By doing that proactive research, you can develop better empathy towards
your patient.
