In March Better Rest Solutions launched its No More Nasty Mask
contest to raise awareness of the importance of using a CPAP machine to manage sleep apnea.
We received nearly 200 entries from people sharing their stories about their own, or their family member's experiences using a CPAP machine to get a good night's sleep.
Now the votes are in and you have selected the top three stories.
Today we reveal the third place winner of its No More Nasty Mask
Third place went to a compelling story by Stephanie Thomas from Washington:
I did my sleep study nearly 6 years ago. I have not been able to get a new CPAP mask since then. It has broken where the forehead piece connects to the rest of the mask. My hose has holes in it so I really don’t get a full flow of air. It’s very discolored and the Velcro is very weak so I have to keep readjusting for a snug fit. But in order to keep healthy I have to wear it.
For her efforts, Stephanie will receive a SoClean CPAP sanitizing unit.
Using the SoClean CPAP sanitizing unit is the easy safe, and natural way to daily disinfect your CPAP. There is no need to disassemble CPAP components to sanitize it and the SoClean is specially designed to fit an array of CPAP models and masks.
