You received your CPAP, shown how to use it, chose your mask and brought it home. You put it on and stare at the ceiling. What to do? You know you need it and that if you do not wear it there are health consequences. You also know that the insurance company is going to monitor your use before they will pay.
So this is how I start the people I have worked with. I ask them t o wear it in the late afternoon, early evening for 20-30 minutes while watching tv. The next day add 5 minutes. And keep going until you can wear it for 2 hours. Then move it to the bedroom. (If you happen to fall asleep with it then you know you are ready to wear it all night).
I will add some relaxation techniques I use in future post. '
