A CPAP Machine is a sophisticated air pump used to treat snoring and sleep apnea. CPAP units are available as fixed pressure, automatic and bi-level devices.
Fixed pressure CPAP machines are designed to deliver a constant pressure to your airways in order to keep them open throughout the night. Your Doctor or sleep clinic will advise on the pressure to be used. This is based on the sleep test that you had.
Automatic CPAP machines monitor each breath and adjust the pressure when they detect your airways are closing. Once the snoring or apnea event is treated the automatic machine drops back down to a low comfortable pressure level.
All machines are used in conjunction with tubing and a mask. Modern masks are lightweight and comfortable. CPAP units are very quiet and are designed to be extremely simple to use.
CPAP machines have been designed to be very simple to set up and use.
Your machine will be set up for you so that you don't need to worry about pressure settings or comfort features. Most people place their CPAP equipment on a bedside table. Its then a matter of attaching your hose, putting water in the humidifier tank, fitting your mask and turning the machine on. Some CPAP units use heated tubes so be aware that it may only connect correctly one way.
An important step is making sure that your mask fits well and doesn't leak too much. With a good seal the CPAP Machine will be quiet and you will be getting the benefits of treatment.
There are many benefits that you can get from using a CPAP Machine. Your Doctor will have explained how with regular use they can help prevent the serious consequences of sleep apnea. The treatment has benefits for your heart health along with other medical conditions.
There is evidence that If you have obstructive sleep apnea you are at a higher risk of having a stroke. The use of a CPAP Machine can reduce this risk. Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability in Australia. Following the advice of your Doctor , monitoring your blood pressure, cholesterol and getting regular exercise all reduce the risk of stroke. Treating your breathing condition is an important part of overall stroke risk reduction.
People with untreated sleep apnea also have a higher than average risk of developing heart disease. Obstructive Sleep apnea is linked to a variety of heart problems. The breathing pauses and stoppages that occur with sleep apnea can cause changes in your heart rate and blood pressure. Sleep apnea may also reduce blood oxygen levels. This puts extra strain on the heart muscle and over the long term can increase the likelihood of heart disease.
Using your CPAP Machine regularly can protect you from heart problems and reduce your chance of developing complications in the future. An excellent resource of heart health tips is the Australian Heart Foundation (www.heartfoundation.org.au)
CPAP therapy can also improve a range of common conditions and the benefits may be felt very early in your treatment.
Sleepiness and daytime fatigue are common symptoms that many people suffer from. Because CPAP therapy helps to restore your sleep patterns to normal and improve the overall quality of sleep this will help you wake up feeling more refreshed and boost your energy levels throughout the day. Improved daytime alertness will help you get through a busy day and reduce the need for afternoon naps.
Emotional factors. It has been shown that CPAP therapy will impact positively on a persons mood. It has also been shown that regular use of CPAP therapy can reduce the risk of depression and anxiety. When used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program this will significantly improve your overall quality of life.
Concentration. Severe sleep apnea can damage the delicate tissue in your brain. This might lead to difficulties in concentrating . It has also been reported that untreated sleep apnea can contribute to memory loss
Snoring. An obvious and immediate effect of CPAP therapy is the elimination of snoring. CPAP Machines reduce or totally eliminate the sound of snoring. A better night sleep for you and your partner is one of the major benefits of therapy. This starts the moment you commence using your machine.
Modern CPAP units have very sophisticated computers that track and record all of your sleep data. The CPAP machines from NSW CPAP all record sleep data and many have in built modems and apps that allow you to easily monitor your therapy.
CPAP machines also have SD cards that record your data. This will enable you or your Doctor to print out a detailed sleep report.
