What do I need to know about caring for someone with mixed sleep apnea?

If you are caring for someone who has mixed sleep apnea, you should make an appointment with their doctor. Then, you should help the person follow their doctor's instructions on a daily basis. This may mean assisting the person in losing weight, not smoking or drinking too much alcohol, or changing the position in which they sleep at night. If their doctor recommends that they use CPAP or wear an oral appliance, make sure they do so every time they go to sleep.
