Why do I need a sleep device?
Your physician has diagnosed you with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a disorder in which the airway collapses during sleep, causing breathing to stop and restart repeatedly. The most noticeable signs of OSA are excessive sleepiness and loud snoring, although not everyone who has OSA exhibits these symptoms.
The most common treatment for sleep apnea, CPAP treatment involves wearing a mask, connected by a tube to a blower that delivers airway pressure. The air pressure acts as an air “splint” to keep the upper airway open. Since pressure requirements vary for each person, your doctor will determine how much pressure is right for you during a sleep study or may prescribe an automatic positive airway pressure (APAP) device to determine the proper pressure.
Automatic Positive Airway Pressure (APAP)
APAP delivers continually adjusting air pressure based on sleep events that occur during use of the device. These machines adjust pressure breath by breath in order to provide the lowest, most comfortable pressure necessary. These are often used to monitor patients within their home for the best therapy pressure amounts.
Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP, VPAP, or BPAP)
It delivers pressure at two different levels: higher for inhaling and lower for exhaling. Some medical conditions may require pressure at these different levels.
Your doctor will prescribe the device that is best suited to your diagnosis.
