Learn About CPAP Machines
CPAP Machines are considered the gold-standard for treating sleep apnea. A CPAP Machine, or Continuous Positive Air Pressure Machine, provides a flow of positive air pressure through your nose or mouth while you sleep to maintain an open airway while you sleep.
There are several basic categories of CPAP machines. Each has their place for providing therapy depending on your unique needs
- CPAP – a CPAP machine delivers a continuous level of air pressure while you sleep. This pressure is set depending on your needs by a licensed professional to optimize comfort and performance.
- APAP – An APAP device is an Auto Adjusting CPAP Machine. These machines can adjust pressure within a prescribed range as your breathing patterns change through out the night.
- Bi-Level or BiPAP – BiPAP machines offer two distrinct pressure settings for inhalation and exhalation. This precision is important in more severe cases of obstructive sleep apnea, especially when central sleep apnea is also present.
- Travel CPAP – Offering similar functionality as a CPAP or APAP, but reduced in size and complexity for easier travel.
Finding the right CPAP machine for your lifestyle, sleep style and breathing patterns is an important step toward successful therapy outcomes. Lofta is here to help if you have any questions.
