Benefits of an Oral Appliance Over a CPAP Machine for Travel
When you travel, it’s important to get enough sleep. Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, you don’t want to be too tired to enjoy yourself. A regular CPAP machine doesn’t do a good job. It’s big, loud, and needs to be plugged in. A travel CPAP machine or an oral device can also be used to treat sleep apnea while a person is traveling.
WHAT IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR YOU?
It’s up to you to decide which sleep apnea treatment is best for you. Talk to your healthcare provider about your situation, needs, and budget to find the best option for you.
A CPAP machine for travel
The travel CPAP kit has a small size to make it easy to take with you when you travel. The machine is small, but most of them come with an adapter for a car charger or a battery. Because it can be used for so many things, camping can be done almost anywhere.
On the other hand, travel machines still take up more room than oral devices. Even though some travel machines have features to make them quieter, they still make noise that can bother other people. Also, since most health insurance plans don’t cover them, the price of a travel machine may seem too high.
On the other hand, compared to home devices, these machines still take up a lot of space. Even if they have features to reduce noise, they still make noise that can bother other travelers. Also, many health insurance plans don’t cover the cost of travel devices, which can make them seem out of reach.
This kind of travel makes it easy for people with a standard CPAP machine to find the best sleep apnea treatment.
Oral appliances treat sleep apnea symptoms by keeping the airway open by stabilizing the jaw. Many patients do well with oral appliances that they use every day at home. These people don’t need any other way to get around when they travel.
Oral appliances don’t need electricity and don’t take up much space. Oral appliances, on the other hand, don’t make noise and don’t need masks or other parts. Patients can travel light because the design is simple.
Even people who like to use a CPAP machine every day may choose to use an oral appliance when they travel.
Oral devices don’t need to be plugged in and take up less room. The oral appliance is different from a CPAP machine in that it doesn’t make noise and doesn’t need a mask or any other equipment. The simple design makes it easy for patients to move around.
Patients who usually use a CPAP machine may choose an oral device when they are traveling.
BREATHE EASIER DURING TRAVEL
It might be tempting to skip treatment for sleep apnea when you’re on the road. But sleep apnea is a serious condition that can lead to more than just tiredness. Patients can have physical and mental health problems if they are not treated.
