Default Sleep Apnea

My wife has sleep apnea but the CPAP machine thing doesnt work and is too cumbersome and awkward to use. Has any one tried the mouth device thing they have now? Its like a mouth guard. Any luck or thoughts on it? She cant sleep, I'm up all night listening to her snore and gasp for air. Have you or anyone you know tried it? Does it work better? Rock on.

I play in a band of which the band name is the dutch translation for apnea. We've been in the Apnea Magazine, on the front cover it said 'you can be a fan of apnea now'.

Your information is only useful if you provide me with the actual Dutch terminology for apnea, see?

Thanks for opening this discussion, Gooch.

Sleep apnea bothers trillions of Americans every night. But I found the perfect solution. No, it’s not CBD oil. I simply hire a person to breathe air directly into my mouth every night. Yes, mouth-to-mouth. This is the only solution that keeps BIG PHARMA out of my sleeping quarters with their machines. If you do some research, you’ll find out that astronauts used this technique for thousands of years.

I use a BiPAP machine. It's like a CPAP, except the pressure goes down when I exhale because my settings are really high and it's hard to breath with fucking hurricane force winds coming at you.

Why isn't the CPAP working? I mean, there's no reason it shouldn't "work" - it's basically a ventilator. Has she tried doing another sleep study or a different specialist? I tend to take mine off in the middle of the night unconsciously, but otherwise I don't see how it couldn't "work". It IS cumbersome and a pain in the ass but I mean so is not sleeping and, in my case, getting into an accident because I fell asleep while driving.

I haven't heard much about the mouthguards

i believe redbull (redbull, not rbg) used to have the same problem.
not sure if cpap helped him, or if it was an alternative. he had to sleep with some thing on his face for a while, i think.

I will actually answer your question and say that if it’s not horribly serious the mouth guards will work perfectly. The only issue is being too lazy to clean it and put it in at night and there’s also a chance that before you’re used to it you’ll throw it across the room without even knowing it.

So I recommend trying it. I do not snore when I have mine in.

It will make your bottom teeth feel a little loose and can theoretically scrape up your tongue and mouth, but it’s ultimately a small price to pay.

And by you I mean your wife I guess lol.

But back to being serious, I was doing the same snoring/gasping thing. Since I bought the mouth guard thing I’m the one complaining about my husband snoring. So encourage her to turn those tables and get ready to be softly elbowed a couple times per night : )

This is the brand I got over a year and a half ago and tbh it looks like they’ve already made it more comfortable: https://www.vitalsleep.com/products/...ing-mouthpiece

Also would advise keeping a glass of water with a straw on a bedside table.

Ok I’m done now. Hope that was helpful.

Ugh one last thing to add. Some of them will totally close off breathing from your mouth. Which would be awful if you have a cold or something, so don’t get one of those. The one I linked to does not do that. Happy shopping.

My coworker that I work night shifts with has used the mouth guard CPAP thing and did not like it. He had it with this smaller, portable CPAP machine that he brings to work. I am not sure what he uses at home, but he exchanged the mouth guard thing for a smaller mask that only goes over his nose and said that he sleeps much better with it. N

i lowered my settings because i was swallowing a ton of air and was super duper bloated when i woke up, very very painful. i have lost 100+ lbs since i got it, which is probably why my settings need to be lowered. my AHI or whatever that measures apneas is still in good range (2, under 5 is normal), so i'm sure it's fine. i'm seeing the pulmonologist in a couple weeks and i'll see what he says about it.
