<li>Obstructive sleep apnea can be very serious. However, following an effective treatment plan can often improve your quality of life quite a bit.</li>
<p>
<li>Treatment can improve your sleep and relieve daytime tiredness. It also may make you less likely to develop <a href="http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/dci/Diseases/Hbp/HBP_WhatIs.html" target="_blank">high blood pressure</a>, heart disease, and other health problems linked to sleep apnea.</li>
<p>
<li>Treatment may improve your overall health and happiness as well as your quality of sleep (and possibly your family's quality of sleep).</li>
</ul>

<strong>Ongoing Health Care Needs</strong>
<ul>
<li>Follow up with your doctor regularly to make sure your treatment is working. Tell him or her if the treatment is causing side effects that you can't handle. </li>
<p>
<li>This ongoing care is especially important if you're getting continuous positive airway pressure (<a href="pap-faq.htm">CPAP</a>) treatment. It may take a while before you adjust to using <a href="pap-faq.htm">CPAP</a>. </li>
<p>
<li>If you aren't comfortable with your <a href="pap-faq.htm">CPAP</a> device or it doesn't seem to be working, let your doctor know. You may need to switch to a different device or mask. Or, you may need treatment to relieve <a href="pap-faq.htm">CPAP</a> side effects. </li>
<p>
<li>Try not to gain weight. Weight gain can worsen sleep apnea and require adjustments to your <a href="pap-faq.htm">CPAP</a> device. In contrast, weight loss may relieve your sleep apnea.</li>
<p>
<li>Until your sleep apnea is properly treated, know the dangers of driving or operating heavy machinery while sleepy.</li>
<p>
<li>If you're having any type of surgery that requires medicine to put you to sleep, let your surgeon and doctors know you have sleep apnea. They might have to take extra steps to make sure your airway stays open during the surgery.</li>
</ul>
