For most people new to sleep therapy it can be a difficult task understanding the differences between all the different CPAP device options you have. In most cases, your physician determines the type of therapy device and pressure setting you need but what about the people that have been on therapy for a while and would like to know the different therapy options that are available now but were not available when they were first diagnosed. In all cases we suggest speaking with your physician prior to any therapy device change, but carefully read your options.
CPAP is the most commonly prescribed and proven treatment for sleep apnea. CPAP therapy is sometimes a broad reference to the therapy for treatment of sleep apnea, hypopnea, Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), flow limitation, and snoring; however there are many different devices that fall in to the positive airway pressure (PAP) family. Listed below are descriptions of the different therapy devices, their target market and a description about therapy delivery.
Sleep apnea is a potentially life threatening disorder that is said to affect nearly 30% of the U.S. adult population. Research shows that untreated sleep apnea can lead to heart failure, stroke, hypertension and diabetes. The most successful therapy for sleep apnea is CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure), a medical device that blows air through a nasal or full face CPAP mask and stabilizes the airway to prevent closure.
CPAP machines come in a variety of therapy modes. A CPAP Machine traditionally generates a fixed pressure of flow (i.e. 10 cm/h2O) while other devices like Auto CPAP (APAP) or Bi-Level or BiPAP Machines Bi-Level (BiPAP) use variable pressures to treat sleep apnea. These therapy modes are typically established in the sleep lab or by a physician. The mask plays an important role in tolerance, compliance and effectiveness of the therapy.
