  • Adherence

Advice & Tips: Many people have trouble with adherence to using their CPAP because of the negative feelings and appearances when it's in use. I got over that so quickly because I realized (through a fitness band) that as soon as I began using my CPAP I got dramatically more REM sleep. This, in turn, helped me tremendously with my cognitive problems. My family and friends quickly saw that I was having fewer memory problems and was mentally sharper. I will ALWAYS use my CPAP
