We help by educating patients with the latest comprehensive treatment options for sleep apnea including:
- Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Therapy
- Oral Devices
- Surgical Options
What is CPAP therapy?
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is the most recommended and the most effective treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
A CPAP machine provides air at a constant prescribed pressure through a tube and out of a CPAP mask to a person with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. CPAP therapy provides a constant airflow which holds the airway open so that uninterrupted breathing is maintained during sleep. This eliminates sleep apnea events and allows the patient to get a restful sleep. The CPAP Problems and solutions can help you more to organize.

An APAP (Automatic Positive Airway Pressure) machine automatically adjusts on a breath by breath basis to blow the minimum pressure needed to keep your airway open during sleep. This allows your machine to provide you with your ideal pressure nightly.
BіPAP аnd BіPaр ST
A BіPAP mасhіnе hаѕ two preѕѕurе ѕеttіngs — one high prеssure sеtting when you brеаth іn, and a lower prеѕѕurе when уou brеath out. This cаn makes іt еаsіer аnd more сomfortablе for mаny uѕеrs. Thе BiPAP ST іѕ used fоr раtiеntѕ who maу not bе аble to brеath on their own at ѕomе tіme durіng the nіght.
A BiPAP machine which is also referred to as BiLevel or VPAP, delivers two separate and distinct pressures; that being a higher pressure when the patient inhales and a lower pressure when they exhale. The machine alternates between the two set pressures which are set per the doctor’s order or prescription
