Sleep apnea is a serious disorder affecting more than 18 million Americans. While the typical symptoms of the disorder are loud snoring and wakeful nights, it can also increase blood pressure, heart rate, and the risk of stroke. This disorder is caused when breathing stops and repeatedly starts at night, sometimes hundreds of times. While your doctor will likely suggest using a CPAP machine, many people with severe sleep apnea respond better to an oral appliance. A CPAP machine is designed to move air from your mouth to your lungs, but an oral appliance instead works by bringing your jaw forward slightly to reduce the size of the airway.
There are many sleep apnea machines and different brands of these machines. One of these is the BMC sleep apnea machine, which is always an amazing option if you are experiencing sleep apnea. Here are some of our personal recommendations.
BMC Luna iQ Auto CPAP Machine with Humidifier
As a respiratory therapist, I had an opportunity to use the BMC Luna iQ Auto CPAP Machine with Humidifier. This CPAP machine reviewed here is renowned worldwide for its effective, user-friendly features. Reviewers, too, are quick to praise the technological improvements incorporated into the new Luna iQ, from a better-heated humidifier to an easy-to-use wireless remote. You no longer have to remove the mask and tube to disconnect the humidifier. All you have to do is turn the humidifier off, and the machine will take care of that.
