CPAPs and Good Smells
The sense of smell is one of the most acute senses in all of human nature and is so connected to the emotional part of our brains (the limbic system) that our reaction to smell is typically emotional and psychological, not logical. The olfactory sense is much sharper than people realize. Most people can comprehend and identify over 10,000 different scents.
Pleasant smells induce strong feelings of calm, comfort, and relaxation. The sense of smell is part of the brain’s emotional centers and cognitive distraction (the ability to exclude other distracting stimuli) is an important feature of human olfaction. Unlike the other primary senses, smell is a chemical sense. Detection of given aromatic molecules initiates a cascade of physiological and emotional responses that occur whether or not the person is conscious of the presence of any smell. Whether people consciously recognize it or not, the sense of smell works against their CPAP therapy. Research has proven that even very small amounts of plastic compounds, even below conscious detection levels, such as vinyl chloride and styrene (and others emitted by all CPAP equipment) result in high levels of stress, irritation, and anxiety.
CPAP Irritations and Restless Sleep
Have you ever felt claustrophobic using your CPAP machine? Have you ever had a bad smell coming through your CPAP machine? Does your CPAP smell like a shower curtain? Do you want to relax more as you are falling asleep? Have you ever tried to put something in the distilled water of your humidifier chamber only to have it ruin the chamber or not work right for you? If so then Pur-Sleep may be the product for you.
