Looking for a gift for Father’s Day? While you could indeed get him another green tie or coffee mug, we have an idea for something you can get him that he probably does not have and could actually use if he suffers from sleep apnea.
After your Father puts on his CPAP or BiPAP mask at night, he needs a pillow that is contoured to fit his head, the mask and the tubing in a comfortable way.
Sleeping with CPAP masks
All of us who have experience in CPAP machines know the annoying feeling of having to deal with pesky masks and air leaks that come as part of the nightly routine for people with sleep apnea.
But here’s the fact: Consistently wearing the CPAP machine is one of the most important things our loved ones with sleep apnea can do for their health. Sleep apnea, after all, is a condition where the individual stops breathing during sleep. And breathing is simply important.
However, it’s time to say goodbye to fixing the mask just how we need to, only to have it become crooked from laying on our side on a pillow. Here are some pillows that make room for the CPAP and are exceptionally comfortable.
Pillows shaped just for this purpose
The CPAP Multi Mask Sleep Aid Pillow has six different pressure areas for optimal sleep with the CPAP. It features raised neck and shoulder supports, a contoured area for the head, and free-pressure zones on either side where the CPAP mask and tubing can go. Traditional pillows press against the mask and undo all the hard work of putting the mask on in the first place.
The butterfly shape of the Psyche Sleep Pillow is made for the same purpose: to get the pillow out of the way of the CPAP mask and tubing but to still be comfortable. Turn on either side as much as you want during the night and no longer worry about your mask being obstructed by your pillow. The Psyche Sleep Pillow is conveniently shaped and easy to pack for making trips.
The Core C-PAP Pillow is similar but concentrates on shoulder support, as you can see in the picture. It is available in three different sizes in order to fit those with both large and small shoulder spans.
A special CPAP pillow for your Father makes a good gift for Father’s Day. What could be better than helping him gets the sleep he wants and deserves?
