Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machines, commonly known as CPAPs, are a real game changer for those suffering from sleep apnea, in which breathing involuntarily stops and starts. CPAP users see a marked improvement in their quality of life since the machine delivers air pressure through a mask which keeps your upper airway passages open.

Taking your CPAP with you on trips might seem like a hassle, but in order to maintain your sleep health, do not take a break from your CPAP. Below are a list of some risks you take when skipping CPAP therapy.
