Sleep Apnea Support Group A.W.A.K.E
Do you suffer from sleep apnea or have a family member or friend who suffers
from it? If so, you are encouraged to attend this support group meeting
on Monday, April 4 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Parrish Healthcare Center
at Port St. John, 5005 Port St. John Parkway, (east of the I-95 Port St.
John exit). The meetings are held in the Conference Center by the south
entrance (near the sleep lab). This is a free community service. Please
call 321-268-6408 to register.
The April 4 meeting will include the following:
· Allergies and CPAP use. What to do? Once you get used to CPAP
therapy and come to appreciate how great it makes you feel, you won't
want to miss one single night using it! But what happens if you have allergies
or a cold? The pollen count is very high this year. Having allergies or
a cold is bad enough, but losing sleep because you cannot use CPAP makes
it even worse. We will discuss options to help you overcome these allergies
and not have to miss out on a good nights sleep with your CPAP.
· Two new CPAP masks will be discussed At this meeting we will
discuss two brand new masks that have just come on the market. We always
display every mask that is made, so you know your options. We want to
provide you with the utmost comfort while wearing CPAP. Presented by Kristina
St. Peter-Weaver, RPSGT
· At every A.W.A.K.E. Support Group meeting you’ll have the
opportunity to see newer model CPAP machines and masks and receive a free
mask fitting if you’d like.
