You shouldn't be suffering with sleep apnea, just because you don't want to be burdened by a machine designed to help you breathe while you sleep. Sleep apnea has some severe effects on you while you are awake – headaches, fatigue and a lowered immune system from not getting enough oxygen while you're sleeping, as well as being unable to stay in a deep level of sleep. Other long term effects are even more serious – a much higher risk of heart failure, stroke and heart attacks.
There is one more reason you shouldn't be intimidated by using a CPAP machine – the new smallest, quietest, most portable and smartest of the Auto CPAP machines – the Transcend Auto. This amazing new CPAP technology features an easier way to record your breath rates, as well as makes using a CPAP machine much more easy to get used to.
