How Common Is Sleep Apnea?

Posted by RemZzzs on Apr 16, 2018 12:00:00 AM

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that causes someone to pause breathing during sleep. Those suffering from sleep apnea usually don't know their breathing is being interrupted for 10 or more seconds at a time, and it often happens repeatedly throughout the night. This disorder causes a long list of symptoms and health issues, including poor sleep quality, chronic fatigue, headaches, depression, and even high blood pressure and heart disease.

The bad news is that sleep apnea is a relatively common issue that affects millions of people worldwide. The good news is that most sleep apnea can be treated effectively with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines.

What Does Sleep Have To Do With Dog Food?

Posted by Nathan on Mar 3, 2017 2:35:49 AM

 

If dog food isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you think of sleep, you're not alone! So what does it have to do with sleep and CPAP full face mask? Well, not much -- directly. But the term "dogfooding" is very relevant to our wide range of sleep apnea full face mask at RemZzzs! 

So what's "dogfooding" actually mean then? Mostly used in the digital world, the term basically means to use your own product internally. The term was first used back in the 80's by an employee of Microsoft. Apparently a team of programmers needed to test some software, and they decided to roll up their sleeves and test it internally on company employees. According to the story, a server named "dogfood" was set up with the test code. 

In essence, when a company talks about "dogfooding", they mean that a product (CPAP full face mask and sleep apnea full face mask) should be used by employees first before going out the door. And that, in a nutshell, is what we mean by saying that dog food is related to sleep. At Naturs Design, the makers of RemZzzs have dogfooded our full face mask liners from the very beginning. In fact, three of the original cofounders of the company use RemZzzs personally every night, along with other members of the staff. When we talk about the comfort of our product, or the way it will allow you to get the full benefits of your therapy, we aren't kidding. It's doing the same for us.

Some companies create products because somone had a good idea and thought people might spend money for it. And some companies create products that start with solving a pressing need personally, and then the product makes it to market. We like to think the second way of doing things helps the world become a better place.

Let's ask the Doctor about Sleep Apnea Full Face Mask

Posted by Sample HubSpot User on Mar 3, 2017 2:32:01 AM

Dr. Barry Krakow, of Maimonides Sleep Arts & Sciences in Albuquerque, NM is a board certified Internist specializing in Sleep Disorders. During his 30+ years as a physician he has engaged in ground-breaking research in sleep medicine. Dr. Krakow is published in prestigious scientific journals, and has had works featured in The New Yorker, New York Times and Time Magazine. Dr. Krakow speaks with authority as he shares his personal experience with CPAP compliancecombined with his expert opinion.

"It has been widely described for decades that the mask has been one of the weakest links in our efforts to help our patients. The facts are that the Manufactures of these masks have neglected to solve the seal problem, whereas the individual resourcefulness of Robert Rutan actually led to an innovative solution in the form of RemZzzs® CPAP Full Mask Liners, which solves many mask-related problems in a large proportion of cases; enabling the patient to wear the PAP device.

I know this to be true from first-hand experience.

I had attempted to use a full face mask for several years and could not improve my hours of use above 6 hours without causing bruising on my cheeks and the bridge of the nose. In 2009 when I first began using the RemZzzs® CPAP Mask Liners, I was able to increase my usage to 8 hours while limiting the irritation on my skin. In the past, I had ceased using the device at least once or twice per week in order for the bruising to heal. Now I can wear the device every night for months on end.

In learning about the impact of the RemZzzs® CPAP Full Mask Liners on myself, I translated that experience to my patients and soon discovered that a majority of them benefited from the mask liners as well. In every one of these cases, the patients reported discomfort, irritation or bruising or all three symptoms when trying to use the mask cushion without a liner. Once we introduced them to the RemZzzs® CPAP Mask Liners they had experiences similar to mine, and were able to maintain usage and thus achieve the benefits of PAP therapy.

The RemZzzs® CPAP Full Mask Liners have been a major technological advance in improving and optimizing the care of sleep apnea patients. Unquestionably, the mask liners for some patients have made the difference between using or not using the device, and between success or failure with CPAP therapy.”
