Communication is extremely important when embarking on sleep therapy. Sharing your experiences with your LISA® therapist can help you quickly adjust to your treatment and equipment. You may also find it extremely helpful to talk to other people with the same condition.
Remember you are not alone. It is estimated that up to 4% of men and 2% of women in middle age suffer from sleep apnoea1 So there is a wealth of experience and information about sleep apnoea out there. Talking to others, asking questions and getting the support you need can make a big difference in meeting your sleep fitness goals.
Many LISA® care centres also run patient forums and support groups. Contact your local LISA® counsellor for information on local availability.
