“Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that causes brief but frequent breathing interruptions during sleep. These pauses can last 10 seconds or more and can occur up to 400 times a night. Currently, almost a third of commercial truck drivers (28%) suffer from sleep apnea.
“It’s really important that truckers with a CPAP machine are using the right inverter. Especially, if the CPAP machine uses a humidifier. Using the wrong inverter or the cheap kind (such as many purchased at truck stops) can cause damage to not only the machine but also the truck. One of the best places to get an inverter is from the manufacturer of the CPAP machine. It’s not going to be cheap, but it’s worth the investment in the long run.”
