What is CPAP?
CPAP is the acronym for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. CPAP is the most common treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Sleep Apnea Types
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs when the tissues surrounding the airway are relaxed or enlarged. Subsequently, the airway collapses during sleep and you momentarily stop breathing until your body is awakened. This can occur multiple times during the night, leaving your heart unrested the next day.
Central sleep apnea (CSA) is when the brain forgets to signal the body to breathe. Eventually, you breathe again when the brain detects low oxygen or heightened carbon monoxide. Complex sleep apnea (CompSA) is when your airway is blocked and your brain doesn’t signal your body to breathe.
Most sleep apnea patients use a positive airway pressure machine, including CPAP, APAP, VPAP and BIPAP.
Treating sleep apnea
By wearing a pressurized mask over your nose or mouth when you sleep, CPAP treats obstructive sleep apnea and may eliminate snoring too. If you find your mask or air pressure is uncomfortable, contact Pro-Air about adjustments or seeking an alternative mask to provide your therapy.
How does CPAP work?
A mask covers your nose, or nose and mouth, and is connected to a machine through plastic tubing. The machine uses continuous pressure to force air through your airway and prevent it from collapsing. Continuous airway pressure is one of the most effective therapies for sleep apnea. Regularly using your device every night helps you stay asleep and increases sleep quality.
Benefits of sleep
- Reduced drowsiness and increased energy
- Better heart health
- Lower blood pressure
- Better glucose management in diabetics
Make sure to routinely replace CPAP supplies. Not only will it keep the machine working at full capacity, it will keep you protected from bacteria. The CPAP machine is replaceable after 3-5 years depending on your insurance.
