Trouble Falling Asleep with CPAP? | Common CPAP Problems & Solutions


One of the more frustrating problems to have when using CPAP is not being able to fall asleep once you’ve got everything set up. If you’re new to CPAP or have just found it’s starting to keep you up at night, you’ll know how frustrating it feels to be kept awake by the machine that should help you sleep better. Some of the main causes for this are:

  • Your pressure is off
  • Your CPAP is too loud
  • Your CPAP irritates your face
  • Your pressure is off
  • Your CPAP is too loud
  • Your CPAP irritates your face

Whatever the cause of your restlessness is, there is likely a straightforward solution to it available in an auto CPAP. As both the smartest and quietest auto CPAP on the market, the AirSense 10 AutoSet from ResMed will be your best bet. If the only problem you have with your CPAP is the sound, rest assured the AirSense will solve that with how quiet it is. For more difficult problems, we’ll go through many of its unique features that help every night be your next best night of sleep.

Your new AirSense could be yours for $0! Allow us to check with your insurance provider for you to find out what is covered (for free!). Click below to get started:

1. AutoRamp and SmartStart will ease you into sleep before you need higher pressure.

The AutoRamp function of the AirSense starts your sleep therapy at a low pressure to ensure you fall asleep more comfortably. Then, once you’re asleep, it will raise the pressure up to the levels you need to keep your airways open. With ramp times up to 45 minutes, you can ease yourself into therapy each night, knowing that the AirSense will adjust itself to higher levels once you’re asleep.

SmartStart will let you take your CPAP off whenever you need, and pause your therapy until you’re ready to resume it. It also will turn your therapy on as soon as you put on the mask and begin to breathe through it, so your AutoRamp settings will activate without any input needed from you.

2. Automatic comfort settings create a peaceful environment to fall asleep.

The AirSense humidifier and heated tube are run by the AirSense’s Automatic Climate Control settings, which regulate humidity and temperature to match your needs. Whether you’re in a dry heated room or a cool air-conditioned one, the AirSense will make sure the air you receive is comfortable and humidified to keep you breathing steady through the night.

The other big comfort setting the AirSense provides is EPR, or Expiratory Pressure Relief. EPR reduces the pressure when you exhale, to make therapy more bearable and consistent. Between the Automatic Climate Control and EPR, you’ll find yourself in dreamland before long.

For a limited time, when you upgrade to the AirSense you can get a FREE CPAP prescription renewal ($99 value) without a trip to the doctor!

3. Auto-titration makes pressure settings a breeze.

Did you know that your pressure needs change through the night? Simple changes like your sleeping position or how tired you were when you fell asleep can affect what settings you need, and they can change from breath to breath. If your CPAP feels like it’s blowing too hard for you to fall or stay asleep, you may need advanced pressure settings with an auto CPAP.

Auto-titration from the AirSense will automatically adjust to match the pressure you need with every breath you take. You won’t need any more sleep studies either, since the machine will adjust to your needs nightly and over time.
