Continuous positive airway pressure or CPAP therapy is a treatment for obstructive sleep apnea that uses constant mild air pressure. It increases the air pressure in throat to inhibit the airway from collapsing, while the patient breathes in. It includes a tube, a mask and a motor which helps in marinating the needed air pressure. The tube joins the machine to mask. The mask is designed to cover only the nose or both the mouth and nose. Various types of masks are available in market such as full face masks, nasal masks, nasal pillow masks and pediatric masks.
The key benefits are included lower the risk of diabetes, improve heart health, increase energy during the day, improve concentration, help to prevent snoring & reduce the risk of depression and lower medical expenses. Apart from this, few of the side-effects are disrupt sleep, cause pain and others.
