CPAP Q & A
What is a CPAP machine?
A continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine delivers supplemental oxygen into your body through a mask while you sleep.
The lightweight mask fits over your nose and attaches to a small unit that produces the oxygen that flows into the mask and your nasal passages.
Why would I need CPAP therapy?
The Sleep Services of Maryland LLC providers frequently recommend CPAP therapy to treat obstructive sleep apnea. This condition is a common breathing disorder that causes your airways to collapse inward during sleep. As a result, you wake up gasping for breath throughout the night.
You might also experience other side effects of obstructive sleep apnea, such as:
- Dry mouth
- Sore throat
- Loud snoring
- Daytime sleepiness
The forced air of the CPAP machine keeps your airways open, so you can breathe better throughout the night and wake up feeling refreshed.
The use of a CPAP machine is suitable for both adult men and women and children who struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep because of loud snoring or gasping for breath. The sleep specialist offers both in-home and in-office sleep studies to confirm obstructive sleep apnea and determine if CPAP therapy is right for you.
What CPAP supplies are available?
Sleep Services of Maryland LLC offers durable medical equipment, including CPAP machines and parts and at-home sleep study equipment to address obstructive sleep apnea and other conditions that interfere with good quality sleep.
In addition to providing the initial CPAP device, you can get replacement parts, such as replacement masks, filters, and tubing when needed to keep your machine running optimally.
The Sleep Services of Maryland LLC team also works with you every step of the way – from your initial sleep apnea diagnosis to the setup of your machine. They provide extensive follow-up care to ensure your CPAP therapy is working well for you.
