My Life has been Improved
Client letters and web site comments sent to VitalAire
There are many events in a lifetime that can make dramatic changes in our lives. I has a heart condition diagnosed and it had been treated by a Dr. here in my hometown and things were slowly improving.
In the process of being treated I visited a specialist who deals with arrhythmia. He suggested that I go to the sleep clinic to be checked for sleep disorders. I found that my sleep was terribly interrupted by apnea.
For many years I was waking often in the night as many as twenty times that I counted. My sleep was not restful and I was suffering sleep deprivation.
I was prescribed a VitalAire CPAP machine and I started to wear it. My sleep was uninterrupted for at least six to seven hours every night. I was feeling much better with much more energy and awareness.
The machine has changed my life. To truly rest and dream at night has been such a pleasure. To be refreshed and ready for the next day has given me a new outlook. The goes on vacation and I would not be without it.
The doctor said that I might not have developed heart problems if I had my CPAP earlier. This has been one of those life-altering events in my life.
8 years ago I would have been described as a restless sleeper, always tired, could nap on demand and some would have the nerve to say I was often irritable and that I could snore like a freight train.
Being diagnosed with sleep apnea, purchasing a CPAP machine and meeting the folks at VitalAire has changed my life for the better.
No longer do I nap….I know what a good sleep should be! I no longer keep the neighbours awake! I would not leave home without my CPAP machine….it has been all over the world.
Thank you (B) and (Y) you are the greatest!
I am a 53 yr old male and have had a snoring issue for many years, which, over time, got progressively worse in duration and intensity. Initially I snored while lying on my back and over time I began to snore in any position including reclined sitting positions such as in cars and on planes. Luckily for me, I am a sound sleeper so my sleep was unaffected by this development (so I thought) but for others, i.e. my fellow car and plane passengers, and more importantly my wife, they were not so lucky.
For several years I felt tired during the day even after getting 8-10 hours of sleep a night. I would rarely miss having to have an evening cat nap after supper during weeknights and during the day on weekends. The results of my (sleep) test indicated I had severe sleep apnea with around 55 sleep disturbances per hour. VitalAire provided a CPAP machine to try and see if it reduced my snoring episodes and sleep disturbances.
The very first night, to my wife’s joy, I did not snore once. She could not get over how effective it was at eliminating my snoring condition. I of course did not feel any different initially, and while it effectively eliminated my snoring, it did take several weeks to get use to the mask and find a comfortable format that worked for me (I finally settled on the nose pillows). Today over a year later, using the CPAP is second nature to me. I often have to travel for my job and it goes with me always. My sleep disturbances have gone from 55 to 2 per hour. I feel more rested when I wake up now. I have begun to have dreams which I hadn’t experienced for years, probably because I never experienced deep REM sleep.
(G) has been very helpful in getting me set up and in maintaining periodic checks on the machine and analyzing my sleep data. I am very pleased with the professionalism of (G) and the great service (G) and VitalAire have provided. I am so glad that the CPAP technology has worked for me.
From (D), a very satisfied client.
