A Comprehensive Guide to CPAP

Hi there! I'm Emma Cooksey and I am the creator and instructor of this "Mastering your CPAP" course. I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea at the age of 30 after I fell asleep at the wheel. Like so many people, I was prescribed a CPAP but was told nothing about how to use it - cue the frustrations! There was no advice on how to solve the initial problems so common with CPAP therapy. I spent hours searching for solutions to my CPAP issues online in obscure forums and in facebook groups. It took me 6 months to gather all the information I needed to begin using my CPAP consistently. All the while I thought "I can't be the only person struggling with this!" and "why don't they tell you about all this when they give you the machine?". I hope I can save you some of the anguish I went through in the early days of using my CPAP. Whether you're new to CPAP or have struggled for a while to use it consistently, in this course I share all the solutions it took me months to learn. I hope you'll sign up and I'm so glad you're here! Emma oxo

Emma has been a resource greater than my CPAP provider! Her extensive knowledge and personal experience is at your fingertips with her Instagram, podcast and online course. I highly recommend Emma and her resources to those new and old to the CPAP world.
