3 Tips For Safe Camping With Sleep Apnea

If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from sleep apnea, you may think that this condition will prevent you from enjoying a night in the great outdoors. The good news is that sleep apnea doesn't have to stop you from camping.

You will just need to take some extra precautions to ensure that you are prepared to manage your sleep apnea while you are communing with nature.

1. Reserve the Right Campsite

You may be tempted to just pull off into the woods and set up camp, but this approach to camping could be dangerous if you have sleep apnea. It's best if you research campgrounds in the area you want to visit to determine what amenities are available to guests.

Reserve a campsite that has an electrical outlet. This will ensure that you are able to operate your CPAP machine without incident throughout the night.

If you are unable to locate a suitable campsite, be sure to bring along several CPAP battery packs to help you keep your machine running smoothly.

Being able to use your CPAP machine will make your camping trip more enjoyable, so be sure that you have a plan in place to power the machine while you are camping.

2. Invest in a Travel-Sized CPAP Machine

The CPAP machine that you use each night at home can be quite bulky. Toting this large machine along on a camping trip just doesn't make sense. The best solution is to invest in a travel-sized CPAP machine.

These machines are small and compact, making them easy to pack alongside your camping gear.

As an added bonus, travel-sized CPAP machines tend to be more efficient than their larger counterparts. This means that your battery packs (should you choose to camp off-grid) will last longer when you use a travel-sized CPAP machine.

3. Pack Plenty of Water

Many people like to use their CPAP machine with the humidifier feature engaged. Having a humidifier helps prevent the CPAP from drying out your respiratory passages while you sleep.

If you are planning to use your humidifier feature, you will need to pack enough distilled water to stock your machine for the duration of your trip.

Putting tap water into a CPAP machine can cause the plastic tubing attached to the machine to clog up. Only distilled water will help your CPAP machine's humidifier safely deliver the moisture you need during the night.

Tips to Save a Tooth That is Knocked Out

I love horses, and my family has kept them for years. One day, I was getting onto the saddle of my favorite horse, and I had a bad accident. My foot slipped as I was getting on her, and I fell. Thankfully, I didn't suffer any major injuries other than a tooth that was knocked out of my mouth. I had a great friend who helped me save it. She rinsed the tooth off in milk, and she had me hold it in my mouth after that until we arrived at the emergency dentist. He was able to stick it right back in! He placed a temporary splint in my mouth to keep the tooth in place until it healed. I am happy to say my tooth is perfect now! I created this blog let others know they can save a tooth that is knocked out if they act fast!
