the book "SLEEP APNEA, immediate cure for an illness
with no cure", by Darío Varela
you ever thought how much your doctor may be making each time
he gets a patient to use a CPAP?
Probably you will think that not a single coin, since he is
an honorable subject. And there is quite a chance you may
be right, in spite he advices you to use a CPAP that will
never allow you to overcome your Sleep Apnea.
During the last few years, hundreds of doctors that seem as
honorable as yours had installed to their patients unneeded
and St. Jude Medical defibrillators. Doctors were paid
one to two thousand US dollars for each unneeded defibrillator
they prescribed. This has meant a 6.6. billions dollars illegal
business (see chapter 16).
It is not that those doctors had just advised their patients
to connect themselves to a machine by means of a mask and
It is that they have opened the patient's chest, cutting ribs,
in order to install them a device that the patient does not
need and that has caused the death of many men that, being
not for their corrupt doctor, they would still be alive.
CPAPs have as well caused the death of thousands of men by
means of depriving them of their will of staying alive. By
getting them desperate until death as a result of their need
to connect themselves every night to a machine that neither
will ever cure them nor will ever allow them to get rid of
Your doctor and thousands of other doctors advise their patients
to connect themselves to a CPAP. Some doctors sincerely believe
this might be a solution for the patient. Other doctors act
by sheer ignorance or by total disregard of their patient's
quality of life. And there is l a large group of doctors and
dentists that recommend the use of a CPAP because that is
precisely their business: they get paid for each patient they
manage to connect to a CPAP.
And this is why the only widely used treatment for Sleep Apnea
is the use of a CPAP system which consists of an air pump
and several accessories that jointly create an air pressure
through the patient's mouth and/or nose with the purpose of
inflating his lungs enough to make him breathe when he is
not able to do it by himself.
The CPAP is intended to be a partial help, a palliative to
the malfunctioning of the patient's vegetative breathing.
The CPAP is not intended to be a remedy for the illness. But
it enslaves the patient. It makes him a handicapped. For the
rest of his now miserable life he will depend upon a pump
and one thousand accessories. And additionally CPAP irritates
the patient's airways, which makes him more prone to additionally
develop an Obstructive Apnea.
manufacturers have no interest in the cure of their clients.
On the very contrary: their nightmare is that all of a sudden
their clients start breathing normally while they sleep, which
is the sole purpose of this book, a fact that would mean for
those corporations a black hole that would swallow and throw
them into the business catastrophe that they deserve.
The central and most expensive piece of a CPAP System is precisely
a pump called CPAP: Continuous Positive Airway Pressure.
The first and most simple CPAP is a pump that generates a
constant air pressure over the patient's airways. Obviously
there exist quite a few varieties of pumps derived from this
original useless monstrosity. Some varieties allow the patient
to regulate by himself the pressure he will receive (APAP
or Auto Adjustable CPAP). Other models (Bilevel CPAP) deliver
two different pressures, an incoming and an out coming one,
and there even exists a variation of this called Bilevel ST
Approximate prices just for the pump were, on December 2010,
US dollars 310 for a CPAP, USD 570 for an Auto Adjustable,
USD 1.100 for a normal Bilevel and over USD 3.300 for
a Bilevel ST.
On the said month, an estimated of 50% of USA patients used
APAP and 47% of them used the basic CPAP.
There are several models of each of these generically called
CPAP pumps and sellers do attribute them the most amazing
and intriguing close to miraculous virtues which are sold
with technicisms the like of “titration” and other
that contribute to bring a harder life and greater disconcert
to their bleak client-patients.
In addition to the pump, patient must buy hoses, masks and
You must add to that humidifiers, since the air pumped into
them gets dry both mouth and nose, and a uninterrupted power
system, since its easy to convince, to those who finally came
to believe that their life depends upon a CPAP, that it will
not be that smart to let his life vanish just because of an
interruption in the public power system.
Unfortunately what has been said is not all and it is not
even close to all.
There are thousand of accessories that are merchandized as
essential, as a matter of life or death: oxygen enricher adapters;
universal bacterial/viral air filters; single, double, special
and premium chinstraps; nebulizers; defibrillators;
hose holders; 360 degrees swivel adapters between hose and
mask and between hose and pump; “Pure White Performance”
tubings which are lighter and more flexible; tubing covers,
wraps and warmers; inline pressure valve for preventing backflow;
bedding clips and hose lifters; natural and scented cleanings
sprays (there are two entirely different sets of them, one
for the mask and the other for the edge of the mask); special
mask wipes; mini or double edge pillows designed to allow
hose passing through them; soft fleece hose tube covers; Heavy
Duty Medical Alert Luggage Tag for CPAP/BiPAP; pressure verification
subsystems which include by pass and hose adapters and pressure
gauges with or without alarm devices; fast hose connectors
for extreme urgent situations handling; etc., etc.
These might seem to be enough to describe the extent of the
situation confronted by SA patients.
Unfortunately not even close to that: market research keeps
opening new venues to grab patient'ss money: There are "Sleep-apnea
dental appliances", which cost close to $3,000 each,
that are recommended "for patients who can't tolerate
the CPAP treatment". Unfortunately these "appliances'
use to cause a patient's teeth to move which in turn means
the risk of developing Temporomandibular Jaw Syndrome, an
illness that brings painful suffering.
In short, a huge market specially designed to exploit the
needs of patients who are in a desperate need of resting,
of getting a refreshing sleep. Patient starts believing that
a CPAP will do it and ends buying every single additional
piece of equipment that he expects will finally put into effective
operation the complex and enslavering system that he dreams
some day will stop whispering close to him at his bed, and
will start delivering results.
