Do you snore or feel tired during the day?

CPAP Direct Managing Director Bryce Perron used to sleep for eight hours a night but always felt tired.

“Quality sleep is more important that quantity,” he said. “A diagnostic test showed that I stopped breathing 28 times per hour, so it’s no wonder I felt wrecked the next day”. After my first night on CPAP, I lost the need for an afternoon nap at 2pm”.

So what is CPAP?
Short for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, it provides a steady stream of pressurised air while you sleep which stops the throat from becoming blocked and waking people up. The CPAP machine features a quiet motor and filter system to pressurize and humidify the air, a hose and mask that delivers the air to the nose and mouth.

The newest CPAP devices are compact, easy to travel with and have many battery options. Mr Perron said sleep was something precious to everyone. He said that we spent a third of our lives in bed and the environment we sleep in has a direct impact on our body’s ability to heal and regenerate. People who snore a lot and have an unsettled sleep and often those with type 2 diabetes or sleep apnoea are among the worst snorers and suffer lack of energy during the day.

CPAP therapy will stop the snoring instantly and help to minimise other potential associated health risks such as stroke, heart attack, dementia etc.

Mr Perron said CPAP Direct is in a massive growth phase and has clinics and partner stores all over Australia. “We have also just put on a remote clinician for CPAP Direct customers to get help and support. This new support division has the ability to adjust pressures in CPAP machines remotely as well as pull reports and help people through the rollercoaster of adjusting to therapy. CPAP Direct also offers a house call service for DVA Gold card holders and approved white card holders as well.

The first step is to see your GP to get a referral for a sleep study. Once that is complete, we can help with an obligation free trial of CPAP and the help to find the right mask.

Once the trial is over, we will deduct the trial cost off the price of the CPAP package and we also guarantee to beat any Australian competitors price by 5% if it’s advertised cheaper than ours.
