SoClean CPAP Sanitizer is the Innovative Health Care Gift of the Year
Uxbridge, MA – November 19, 2012 — Better Rest Solutions’ innovative technology brings CPAP sanitizing to a whole new level with their automated SoClean . The SoClean sanitizing automatically completes the daily chore of sanitizing CPAP mask, hose, and reservoir without any disassembly.
With over 12 million Americans diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and an estimate of millions more who have yet to be diagnosed, the use of CPAP therapy is growing exponentially. OSA is a syndrome caused by obstruction of the upper airway. It is characterized by unnatural, repetitive pauses in breathing during sleep, and is usually associated with a reduction in blood oxygen saturation. These pauses in breathing, called apneas typically last 20 to 40 seconds. Symptoms of sleep apnea are varied, with the most common being unexplained daytime sleepiness, restless sleep, and loud snoring (with periods of silence followed by gasps). Some of the health dangers OSA can provoke are high blood pressure, obesity, stroke, and heart disorders, to name a few.
The most common means of treating OSA is the use of a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine, which uses air pressure to gently keep airways open during sleep. One of the challenges connected with CPAP therapy has to do with how quickly CPAP equipment can build up contaminants, and how arduous it is to keep clean. The SoClean device allows for total CPAP sanitizing, on a daily basis, without any of the disassembly or hassle that’s normally part of hand cleaning.
“Our goal here at Better Rest Solutions is to enhance and improve the sleep experience and overall health of those with sleep disorders” said Michael Schmidt, President of Better Rest Solutions.
Moreover, he adds, “Quite frankly, there is nothing else like the SoClean available today. It is truly unique. Whether it is for the home user, or in an institutional setting, we feel that it will soon become the gold-standard for CPAP sanitizing.”
