Getting your therapy equipment
If you've been diagnosed with NMD, your physician will talk to you about choosing the right therapy device and mask for your condition. A good healthcare provider will not only help you set up your equipment, go through the settings on your device and help you find a mask that's right for you, but they will also be a good source of support throughout your therapy journey.
It is important to find a healthcare provider that you trust and feel comfortable with. Ask yourself the following to ensure that you get the best care available.
|Patient education||Have you been informed about the importance of treatment, and how to use and take care of your equipment?|
|Mask choices||Have you been offered a wide variety of masks to suit your unique facial features and lifestyle needs?|
|Proper fitting setup||Are you sure that your mask fits properly while you're lying down?|
|Objective compliance data||Have you been offered monitoring tools, so they can track your therapy usage and report it back to your doctor or sleep physician?|
|Patient follow-up||Have you been called a few days after setup to answer questions and address any concerns that you might have? Have you been reminded when it's time to service your equipment or replace accessories to ensure the most effective therapy?|
