The Quincy Regional Sleep Disorders Support Group will hold a question and answer session on PAP therapies at its meet on Tuesday, March 20, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Blessing Hospital auditorium.
The auditorium is just inside the main entrance to the hospital. The event will include snacks, prizes and open conversation.
PAP stands for positive airway pressure therapy. It is a general term that applies to all sleep apnea treatments that provide patients with a stream of compressed air while they sleep to support their airway.
Quincy Regional Sleep Disorders Support Group meetings are helpful to anyone currently using sleep apnea therapy, those beginning therapy or those with questions about sleep apnea, as well as anyone dealing with any form of sleep disorder. Family members and friends are also encouraged to attend.
The support group is sponsored by The Blessing Sleep Center in association with the American Sleep Apnea Association, and the AWAKE (Alert, Well And Keeping Energetic) network.
Meetings for the rest of 2018 will be held June 19, Sept. 18 and Dec. 18 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., in the Blessing Hospital auditorium.
For more information or to join the mailing list, please call The Blessing Sleep Center’s support group dedicated voicemail at (217) 277-5397.
