What is CPAP therapy?

 

There are several types of sleep therapy machines, but a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine is the most common. A CPAP machine sends a constant flow of airway pressure to your throat to ensure that your airway stays open during sleep, effectively treating the spontaneous pauses in breath associated with sleep apnoea.

 

Treating your sleep apnoea will positively impact your life by increasing your energy, alertness, and overall happiness. Begin a healthier, happier life with sleep therapy.

Understanding CPAP devices and masks.
 

CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy consists of a device that sends airflow through tubing to a face mask in order to keep your airway open during sleep.

 

It may be difficult at first, but adapting to your sleep therapy will lead to better sleep and a healthier life.

Masks
 

There are a variety of comfortable masks to fit your individual needs. The mask will cover your nose or your face, depending on how you breathe during the night. You can breathe naturally with your mask on. 

Cushions
 

Cushions make the mask comfortable while forming a seal so that the air from the therapy machine can keep your airway open. 

Headgear
 

Headgear keeps the mask stable while you sleep. Over-tightening your headgear can damage your equipment and lessen the effectiveness of your treatment. 

Therapy machines

 

There are several types of sleep therapy machines, but a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine is the most common. It sends a constant flow of air pressure to your throat so that your airway stays open while you sleep.

Display settings
 

CPAP machines have different settings that allow your doctor to adjust the air pressure. You should always be sure to use the setting your doctor specifies.

Tubing
 

Tubing passes air from the CPAP machine to the mask. It's important to position the tube over or through your headboard so that you won't pinch it while sleeping.

Filters

Filters make sure that you're only breathing clean air. Some machines have one filter, while others have an additional ultra-fine filter.

Airflow
 

The CPAP machine pushes air into the tube and through the mask into your airway. This prevents your airway from collapsing and stops sleep apnoea from occurring.
