No, a sleep apnea pillow is not a special kind of pillow that will magically stop your sleep apnea. I wish.
Rather, these are pillows that are designed to work with your sleep apnea device, such as a cpap, and still be able to sleep comfortably in any position. They work just like the bath mats in a bathroom, whose job is to keep the feet happy and comfortable.
I have a few reservations about such a pillow. Actually, just one. That is that the ideal sleeping position for anyone is on one’s back. A CPAP forces a person to stay in (approximately) that position, which is good for your health, quality of sleep, and even can reduce apnea and snoring.
Nevertheless, I sympathize with those who don’t want to sleep on their backs. It can be uncomfortable and takes some getting used to. When you through a CPAP machine into the mix, well, like I said, I sympathize.
