CPAP Treatment – Have Good Sleeping Nights

CPAP Machine

CPAP is the abbreviation for continually positive airway pressure therapy for the treatment of patients with sleep apnea. CPAP machines use moderate air pressure to keep the airways open and are usually used by sleeping patients with respiratory problems. In particular, what is helped by CPAP therapy is to ensure that your airway doesn't collapse while you are sleeping.

For Whom Is This Therapy?

CPAP therapy is one of the most recommended therapeutic options for obstructive sleep apnea patients who do not get sufficient air to their lungs. CPAP therapy is also used to treat children whose lungs have not developed completely. The CPAP blows air into the nose of the baby to help his lungs inflate.

You will work with your sleep technologist to ensure that the settings for work best for you when you are prescribed to a CPAP machine. It is the concern of every sleep technician that the air pressure in the machine is sufficient to keep the airway open while you sleep.
