Impact of Sleep Therapy
CPAP SAVES MARRIAGE
For better or worse, we can all say that we are easier to deal with when we sleep better. When one person has sleep apnea, the significant other suffers from second hand sleep apnea because they can't sleep with the other person snoring or gasping for air! Many couples end up sleeping in different bed rooms, which can have an impact on intimacy. Not to mention sleep apnea can curb sexual desire and might contribute to erectile dysfunction.
There is a real difference between quality and quantity of sleep. Five hours on a CPAP feels much better than 8 hours without.
