What is the Use of CPAP

CPAP, BiPAP, and Ventilator machines are all designed to help patients with breathing disorders. You may have questions about these types of equipment such as how are they different and which one would be best for you. Your physician will choose a device depending on your diagnosis and breathing needs.

CPAP (Continuous Airway Pressure) Machines

CPAPs are most commonly used for obstructive sleep apnea treatment. Pressurized air is forced down the airway to keep the airway open and free from obstruction. This prevents sleep apnea from occurring.

The level of pressure delivered by your CPAP machine depends on how hard your airway is to open. This is usually determined during a sleep study and then prescribed by your doctor. Some machines will adjust to whatever pressure is necessary to ensure you are always breathing. These type of machines usually start at a lower pressure and react to your breathing patterns to ensure the airway stays open.
