Effects of Sleep Apnea on the Body

September 19, 2016



Today approximately 50-70 million people suffer from some type of sleep disorder. Lack of sleep is a known fact to increase risks of cold and flu. Your immune system is made of several types of cells and proteins. Studies show that a lack of sleep causes your T Cell count to go down which opens the door to cold and flu. A good night sleep with your

CPAP / BiLevel machine is a great way to help battle sleep deprivation and also help battle any bacterial infections.


Sleep deprivation is linked to a lot more than bacterial infections, the common, cold, and flu. Another major risk in sleep deprived people is heart disease. This is caused by the rise of C-reactive protein which causes inflammation.


Not everyone needs the same amount of hours of sleep each night. Some people sleep better than others. Anything less than 7 hours of sleep per night is where the risk rises.


To ensure you are getting a great night's sleep make sure you continue to follow Medical Guidelines and change your supplies on a regular basis. Not getting enough sleep while using dirty CPAP / BiLevel equipment could be a dangerous combination.
