When a patient cannot tolerate CPAP, they neglect to use it. Approximately 83% of CPAP patients quit or are inconsistent in their therapy.

CPAP intolerance is often caused by issues outside of your control:

  • Seasonal allergies or ongoing congestion
  • Nasal, sinus, or upper palate issues (such as a deviated septum)
  • Skin irritation on face
  • Nasal irritation, dryness, or bleeding
  • Claustrophobia or sensation of suffocation
  • Respiratory infections
  • Abdominal bloating and gas
  • Machine disturbs sleep (or partner’s sleep)

If you are looking to an alternative to CPAP, oral appliances offer a convenient solution.
