How to Know Your CPAP Therapy is Working
CPAP therapy is widely regarded as the best way to treat sleep apnea, a condition where sleep is interrupted by airway obstruction, causing short periods without breathing. The therapy can seem daunting, as patients must learn to sleep with a CPAP machine, the best-fitting mask for their sleep style and other necessary equipment.
In moments of frustration, it’s common to wonder if CPAP therapy is even working. Here are some of the signs to look for.

The most obvious difference you will notice if your CPAP therapy is working is feeling well rested during the day. Uninterrupted sleep works wonders. Your body gets to recover and rejuvenate, and you’ll wake up without headaches and fatigue. Quality sleep also improves your concentration, memory and mood.
Before you were diagnosed with sleep apnea, it’s likely that you noticed restlessness during sleep from the regular awakenings. Other symptoms of sleap apnea include severe snoring and waking up gasping for air, which are alleviated by effective CPAP therapy. If you’re regularly experiencing restful, uninterrupted sleep, the therapy is working.
Your AHI Score Is Low
Most CPAP machines come equipped with an AHI (Apnea-Hypopnea Index) reader, which objectively measures the effectiveness of your CPAP therapy by tracking sleep apnea symptoms while you’re asleep. The lower your score, the fewer incidents the reader tracked, and the better you slept.
Tips & Tricks
To make the most of your CPAP therapy, there are a few tricks you can employ before going to sleep.
- Lie on your side. Try going to sleep in a position that will facilitate better airflow, such as on your side. This allows gravity to help keep your airway open, whereas it is more likely that your tongue will fall back to obstruct your airway while sleeping on your back.
- Check your humidifier. Breathing dry air will irritate your airway and may interrupt your sleep. The same goes for cold air. Conduct regular checks of your humidifier before settling in to ensure you’ll be supplied with lukewarm and humid air all night long.
- Tighten your mask. There are several risks associated with breathing in unclean air from mask leaks, all of which will affect the effectiveness of your CPAP therapy. From airway irritation to harmful bacteria and even a return of your original symptoms, the list is a long one. By taking a moment to adjust your mask and tighten it appropriately, you avoid these inconveniences and have a better experience with CPAP therapy.
Consult Your Doctor
Sleep apnea is like any other condition in that each case is unique and requires attention to detail. If you have any concerns about the effectiveness of your CPAP therapy, your doctor can make recommendations tailored to your needs.
