When looking to purchase a sleep apnea pillow you will likely want to consider the type of pillow that will work best for you. To begin with you will want to consider whether you will be wearing a oxygen mask to sleep in at night or not. Some sleep apnea pillows can accommodate oxygen masks while others are simple wedge pillows. The pillows that have the dips in the middle are those that will work well for individuals who are sleeping with oxygen masks on. Of course, these are usually a bit more costly then those that are just simple wedges.
There are many online retailers that specialize in sleep apnea pillows and other standard retailers that carry these specialty items as well. Since sleep apnea is a growing problem these corrective pillows can be found even in regular retail stores like JC Penny or any store where pillows are sold. The cost of these pillows will of course depend on the style and fabric that you select with cotton fiber pillows being the most preferred because they work well in the heat and in the cold as well. Prices on these pillows are similar to purchasing a higher quality pillow and can run anywhere from $30 or $40 up to $300 on the high end through medical supply companies and sleep apnea specialty stores.
Purchasing a corrective pillow is a wise investment before taking more extreme measures to reduce and eliminate your sleep apnea. Most doctors do recommend this as the first course of action for those with sleep apnea.
