What is a CPAP machine ?

A CPAP machine is a piece of medical equipment. It provides the patient with sleep therapy. For the treatment of sleep apnea, a CPAP machine is used. The CPAP delivers a constant flow of positive pressure to the patient's throat to keep the airway open while sleeping. It safeguards the patient against obstructive sleep apnea. A sleep specialist can teach the patient how to use the CPAP machine.

Why a cpap machine is needed?

The most effective nonsurgical treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. It is the first and most commonly used treatment option for adults. So a cpap machine is in treatment of sleep apnea.
While you sleep, CPAP device provide a constant supply of oxygen to your body. As a result, they help to prevent the brief breathing interruptions that are characteristic of sleep apnea.

How CPAP machine works?

The compressor (motor) of a CPAP machine produces a continuous stream of pressurized air that passes through an air filter and into a flexible tube. This tube directs clean air into a mask that fits over your nose or mouth.
The air from the CPAP pushes against any obstructions while you are sleeping, opening up your airways to get your lungs oxygen.
Your breathing does not pause because nothing is obstructing the flow of oxygen. As a result, you do not wake up to start breathing again and again.

Your sleep specialist will recommend a CPAP pressure for you based on how much pressure you require to keep your airway open. When you are in the sleep laboratory, your sleep specialist may have you try different levels of CPAP pressure to determine which the best level is for you.
NOTE- CPAP is a treatment, not a cure for sleep apnea. Your sleep apnea symptoms will go away if you use CPAP.Your breathing and sleeping patterns are both normal. But Your sleep apnea symptoms will return if you stop using CPAP. Your breathing and sleep will be disrupted once more.
