for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Increase Your Energy. Reduce Daytime Sleepiness.
PAP stands for Positive Airway Pressure Therapy and can prevent or reverse the symptoms of OSA.
PAP therapy has been shown to help:
- Reduce Blood Pressure
- Improve Mood
- Improve Memory
CPAP devices deliver a constant level of air pressure throughout the night. You work with your doctor to determine the level of pressure that is right for you. A sleep study may be necessary to determine the pressure level.
APAP therapy automatically raises or lowers the air pressure needed throughout the night.
BPAP devices provide two levels of pressure: higher when you breathe in and lower when you breathe out. This option may be used when you have OSA along with another breathing disorder.
