Cpap Machines


CPAP machines are currently the most effective treatment for sleep apneaObstructive sleep apnea is a serious breathing disorder due to the many complications that come with it. However, it shouldn’t be a cause of panic. There are ways to cope with it, using CPAP machines being one of them.

A CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine is prescribed by a Sleep or Respiratory Specialist.  CPAP is used in providing air pressure to keep your airway open and so avoid sleep disturbances. It also reduces your snoring which will make your bed partner a happier person.

The CPAP works by gently blowing air into the throat to improve the flow of air into the airways.  It uses a special mask fitted over your nose and mouth into which air is blown at a certain pressure. This pressure is set so it would be just enough to prevent sleep apnea.
