About CPAP therapy
CPAP therapy (Also known as continuous positive airway pressure therapy) uses a machine to help a person who has obstructive sleep apnea breathe more easily during sleep. It involves using a CPAP machine that includes a mask or other device that fits over your nose or your nose and mouth, straps to position the mask, a tube that connects the mask to the machine's motor, and a motor that blows air into the tube.
CPAP devices are the most commonly used to treat sleep-related breathing disorders including sleep apnea. It also may be used to treat preterm infants who have underdeveloped lungs.
The first step in getting CPAP therapy is to have a sleep study (polysomnogram) performed at a sleep clinic, or you may also qualify to have a ues home sleep test (HST) performed to determine the severity of your sleep apnea.
When you're using CPAP, you need to see your doctor or sleep specialist regularly. You may also need more sleep studies to adjust the CPAP machine and check whether the treatment is working.
It is important that you clean your mask and tube every day and refill your medical device prescription at the right time to replace the mask and tube to ensure the treatment continues to work.
