If you’re like most people you may not like the idea of having CPAP treatment forever. But, that may not be the case for you. How long you have to use CPAP all comes down to your sleep apnea diagnosis and how effective your treatment is.
Like many illnesses, the length of your treatment really comes down to whether you have mild or severe sleep apnea. If you have mild sleep apnea than you may not need CPAP treatment forever. But, if you have severe sleep apnea the consequences can be life-threatening and it’s more likely that you will need CPAP treatment forever.
