What is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)?
CPAP is the delivery of room air at pressure via a nasal or full face mask interphase. CPAP works as an upper airway splint maintaining airway patency thereby ensuring uninterupted airflow while breathing during sleep.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the gold standard 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.
The ISMC CPAP clinic offers expert help and guidance through years of experience and knowledge gained by our dedicated staff to ensure you obtain maximum benefit using Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy and always wake refreshed.
