CONTINUOUS POSITIVE AIRWAY PRESSURE (CPAP)

The most effective and primary medical treatment for severe Sleep Apnoea is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).

A CPAP machine is a small air blower connected by a flexible hose to a cushioned plastic mask that covers your nose. The blower delivers air pressure of adjustable intensity through the hose and mask into your nose and throat to keep the air passage open during sleep.

While many patients find it difficult to adapt to CPAP therapy, new “state of the art” machines have features which have enhanced patient comfort and compliance.

Although a highly effective treatment, unfortunately many patients find this treatment difficult to tolerate and so do not continue with it over time.
