To treat his sleep apnea, Joe Biden uses a CPAP machine

In order to help him sleep better, Vice President Joe Biden has begun utilizing a medical gadget frequently used to treat sleep apnea.

Biden is utilizing a CPAP machine, which maintains an individual’s airways open while they sleep so they may obtain the oxygen they need to operate.

White House spokesman Andrew Bates noted that the president utilized a CPAP machine last night, which is typical for those with a history of sleep apnea.

“The president has disclosed his history with sleep apnea in thorough medical reports since 2008,” Bates said.

While a person is sleeping, the gadget is fastened to their body. As Biden left the White House for Illinois on Wednesday, journalists spotted dents on his face.

Sleep apnea, a common illness in which breathing is regularly interrupted while you sleep, has long affected Biden, who is 80.

Although only 6 million Americans have received a diagnosis for sleep apnea, the American Medical Association believes that around 30 million Americans suffer from the disorder.

Loud snoring, spells of not breathing while sleeping, gasping for air while sleeping, and feeling tired even after a full night’s sleep are common symptoms.

A CPAP machine, which uses a face mask or nasal cushion to supply airflow to the nose and mouth, is one of the most popular and efficient treatments for sleep apnea.

The brain doesn’t have to wake up the body when sleeping since the airflow keeps the upper airway passages open.

Voters have expressed increasing anxiety over Biden’s age, and his use of a CPAP machine has now been revealed.

Biden is the country’s oldest president. In February, Biden had a medical examination.

In a letter made public subsequently, his doctor, Kevin O’Connor, stated that he was still a “healthy, vigorous 80-year-old male who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency.”
