Cousins! White House officials have recently revealed that President Joe Biden has begun using a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP ) machine to help assist him with breathing while he sleeps!
According to reports from CNN, Biden has recently begun using the machine to help treat his sleep apnea. He is said to have had indented stripes on both sides of his face on Wednesday morning.
“Since 2008, the president has disclosed his history with sleep apnea in thorough medical reports. He used a CPAP machine last night, which is common for people with that history,” says White House spokesman Andrew Bates.
Sleep apnea is described as a disorder in which a person repeatedly stops and starts breathing unknowingly. The National Institutes of Health explains that CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine, “uses mild air pressure to keep breathing airways open while you sleep.”
Approximately 30 million people in the United States suffer from sleep apnea, reports the American Medical Association.
White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor is said to have noted two areas that require further “observation” following Biden’s 2021 physical, reports CNN. Records show, “increasing frequency and severity of ‘throat clearing’ and coughing during speaking engagements” and the president’s stiffer gait.
It has been indicated that Biden is fit to serve as president.
