You’re CPAPping it Wrong

You’re CPAPping it Wrong June 4, 2015

A couple of sleep studies and an apnea diagnosis, and here I am in the midst of the CPAPpening. After the nasal mask failed to work out for me, it was time for something new. Tonight I try for the first time the nasal “pillows,” which look like little blue earplugs or gummy candies that stick right on your nostrils.

I recruited my boy, 5 years old, to help me figure it out.

At first, I was all, where does this tube go?


That seemed to miss the point. Was there something I was supposed to be listening for?


If so, I couldn’t make any sense of it. So I brought the boy over, and I didn’t trust what was going on in his head.


And that’s when it occurred to me that this was what this device was really for: learning more about what was in my boy’s head! Through my nose.


I’m sure this will all work out.
