Sharing the Benefits of CPAP
It's not unusual to come to Medigas and hear a CPAP user delivering their testimonial to a newly prescribed Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) candidate. An experienced CPAP user will often describe the benefits that CPAP has made in their life – no more snoring, the new found energy, the change in moods, the difference with driving, and more. They can't imagine going to sleep without their CPAP. Many times we are even told that the gentle hum of the CPAP unit helps their spouse fall asleep!
The Medigas Sleep teams across Canada regularly host Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) events. At these events, CPAP clients are invited to meet with a Medigas healthcare professional for mask re-fittings and CPAP problem solving. Clients are encouraged to bring in their CPAP units for routine maintenance, check out new CPAP products, meet with CPAP manufacturer representatives about new technology and meet other CPAP users.
During a recent event, a CPAP client made a point of saying how grateful she was that Medigas organized the event because it motivated her to have her mask replaced – she said she never would have made the time otherwise even though her worn mask was ready for replacement!
