CPAP

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment is the gold standard therapy for OSA. With effective CPAP treatment you can reduce the number of interruptions to your sleep to a bare minimum. CPAP works by applying high pressure air to your nose and/or mouth during sleep. The pressurised air acts like a splint and prevents the airway from collapsing, enabling you to breathe normally.

A CPAP setup consists of a device which sits on your bedside table, a connecting tube and a nasal or full face mask. The device contains a motor which takes in air and then sends it at a set pressure through the tube and mask and into the patient's airway. The set pressure will vary from one patient to the next depending on the severity of their OSA.

The mask system is the most important part of anyone's CPAP therapy. It is crucial to find the right mask for you as early on in your treatment as possible. Some people can use nasal masks or nasal pillow masks. However, if you suffer from mouth leak (air escaping through your mouth when using a nasal mask) or tend to breathe through your mouth when you are asleep, you will need to use a full face mask to be treated effectively.

The latest ResMed S9 devices are the quietest machines available, and have been designed to mimic patient breathing patterns far more closely, relieving pressure during exhalation. The reduced noise and pressure relief ensures maximum comfort for the patient during the night, giving you an undisturbed sleep.
