What is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)?

The most common treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). In most cases CPAP is needed to keep OSA under control. Many CPAP users report feeling much better after using it throughout the night. Unless OSA is eliminated over time by treatment its risks will return when CPAP therapy is stopped.

CPAP is the most effective form of OSAS treatment. It’s a small device that provides a gentle flow of positive air pressure through a mask that fits over your nose and keeps the airway open during sleep. This allows for normal respiration and a peaceful sleeping pattern.

CPAP is not a cure for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and usually it’s a long-term therapy solution and a great investment to improve your quality of life. It works by pushing air into the back of the throat where throat tissues collapse during sleep. It acts by ‘splinting’ the airway open allowing for inhaling and exhaling of air.

Why CPAP Therapy?

It is the most successful means of treating OSA.

The CPAP device is a bedside air compressor which delivers a constant gentle flow of positive pressure through a mask fitted comfortably over the nose.

This pressure helps as an “air splint”, keeping the airway open to allow normal breathing. The air pressure required varies from one person to another.

CPAP machines are portable, quiet and multi-voltage. They work with heated humidifiers to warm and moisten the air, allowing one to breathe more comfortably.

CPAP masks come in a variety of sizes, materials and shapes to meet your individual needs.
