CPAP Machines & Masks

CPAP is the delivery of room air at pressure via a nasal or full face mask. Pressurised air is pushed from the CPAP machine through the tubing into the CPAP mask and enters through the nose into your upper airway, where the increased pressure keeps your upper airway open.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the commonest treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) however some patients experience an adjustment period to this treatment modality and require specialist assistance and guidance when they first start using CPAP in order to gain optimal benefit.

How does CPAP therapy work?

CPAP is a simple concept. The CPAP machine takes air from the room and gently pressurises it, blowing air through the tube and mask into the upper airway. The pressure of the air keeps the upper airway open while you are asleep. With many different types of pumps and masks, there’s one to suit you.
