Snoring with CPAP


Snoring with CPAP

Posted 8/31/2015

My husband continues to snore despite using CPAP. What is the problem?

There are numerous conditions that could cause snoring while using CPAP. The main culprit in my experience is the mask and how it fits. Did your husband have his face measured for a proper mask, or was one chosen for him?

If the mask fits well and no air is leaking during the night it could be the position he chooses to sleep in. Sleeping on your back causes OSA to worsen.

Ask your husband to ensure a good mask fit and possibly sleeping on his side, and the snoring should be improved.
