Continuous Positive Airflow Pressure (CPAP) is the most common treatment for mild to severe obstructive sleep apnea.

CPAP

 

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the most common and effective way of treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea. A CPAP system consists of a small, quiet, bedside unit that delivers a flow of air through a tube and mask system.

 

The continuous pressure provided by this medical device prevents the airway from collapsing while you sleep, allowing normal breathing throughout the night. The pressure is just enough to keep your air passage open, preventing most forms of apnea and snoring.

 

The basic form of treatment is fixed CPAP therapy which provides one constant treatment pressure throughout the night. Auto CPAP (APAP), varies the pressure during the night, breath by breath as it responds to the changes in your airway

Extensive follow up program

 

Included with the purchase of a CPAP unit, the follow up program consists of an optional one, three, six, and 12-month follow up appointments.

 

At this time we would review the effectiveness of the therapy and the overall compliance. Written communication is maintained with the referring physician from the initial consultation through to the follow up as an objective assessment of the effectiveness of the therapy.
