CPAP Machines

CPAP machines treat sleep apnea by using a mask to place pressurized air in your mouth to keep your airway open. Multiple studies found that CPAP treatment may be able to help address the decline in thinking and memory connected with sleep apnea. Many people report an improvement in their sleeping and functioning after using a CPAP machine.

Next Steps

While these studies don’t prove that sleep apnea causes dementia, they do show a fairly strong correlation. In light of this, as well as the other health risks that sleep apnea has been tied to, identification and treatment by a physician is strongly recommended. Addressing your sleep apnea could be a fairly simple way to improve your current and future health, both for your body and your brain.
