Sleep apnoea is when your breathing stops and starts while you sleep. The most common type is called obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Sleep apnoea needs to be treated because it can lead to more serious problems. A CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine is used in the treatment of sleep apnea. It keeps your airways open while you sleep so you can receive the oxygen you need for optimal function. CPAP machines can significantly improve sleep quality and reduce your risk for a number of health issues, including heart disease and stroke.

CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) is a machine that uses mild air pressure to keep breathing airways open while you sleep. Your healthcare provider may prescribe CPAP to treat sleep-related breathing disorders including sleep apnea.

Advantage:
Treating sleep apnea has been shown to improve quality of life:
– No more snoring
– Wake up refreshed
– Less daytime fatigue
– Better concentration
– Reduction in morning headaches

CPAP machines stop snoring by creating continuous positive air pressure that keeps your muscles from collapsing. In this way, the soft tissues of your neck, throat, and mouth do not partially block your airway, creating the “snore” sound. CPAP machines also reduce your risk of health complications from sleep apnea.
