Hello MyApnea!

I wanted to let you know that we have posted two new blogs. The first one is to let you know that the FDA warned about the safety of CPAP cleaning devices that use ozone or ultraviolet light. For more information, check out the blog post: https://myapnea.org/blog/2020/04/fda-questions-safety-of-cpap-cleaners

The second blog is about strategies to promote better sleep in these uncertain times. I know maintaining decent sleep during this stressful period is something I've been working on. I'm sure many others are finding their sleep is affected by the stress and worry of the pandemic. To learn about why you might be feeling this way and some helpful tips, check out the blog post written by Harvard sleep physician, Dr. Bertisch: https://myapnea.org/blog/2020/04/strategies-to-promote-better-sleep-in-these-uncertain-times.

We hope you are all as well as you can be during this uncertain time and that you and your family's are healthy and safe.

In health,

-The MyApnea Team

I also wanted to make people aware of the FAQ from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. This is a reliable source for information about managing sleep apnea during the pandemic: https://aasm.org/coronavirus-covid-19-faqs-cpap-sleep-apnea-patients/

Thank you RebeccaR

The AASM link makes for an interesting read but I can't believe the number of questions beneath it.

One thing this pandemic has taught me is just how ineffective our language is for the accurate and clear dispersal of information.
