CPAP MACHINES

Pap (Positive Airway Pressure) Treatment



Introduced over 30 years ago as the only non-surgical treatment for OSA, PAP devices have become smaller, quieter and provide many more features to enhance compliance. Referred to as the gold standard since its introduction, PAP (Positive Airway Pressure) is the most common and effective method of sleep apnea treatment. PAP devices have multiple components; to use the device, a small comfortable mask or nasal pillows are fitted over the nose leaving the mouth uncovered. Patients must sleep with their mouths closed, aided by a chin strap or a full face mask that covers both the nose and mouth, while the device gently blows air into the nose at a pressure slightly higher than the surrounding air pressure. The first form of PAP therapy was CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) and when introduced these devices were bulky and awkward.

Today, PAP devices are smaller, quieter, and more comfortable. While there were once only two types of masks to choose from, today there are 40, meaning with proper assistance patients are sure to find a mask that fits comfortably and securely on their faces, one of our main priorities is to match patients with appropriate PAP devices and masks. We provide each patient with an advanced featured Auto PAP device that can be set to CPAP mode but is more comfortable in the Auto mode where it responds to snoring and flow limitation on a breath by breath basis to treat a majority of the forms of obstructive sleep apnea. We offer a 30-day guarantee on all masks, and patients are free to return repeatedly to try different masks until they find the right one for them. We also offer several specialized PAP systems to meet the various needs of our patients


Treatment Options


CPAP "Continuous Positive Airway Pressure". CPAP has been proven to be the most effective treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea. A CPAP machine will blow a steady, single fixed pressure of air that keeps obstruction from causing apnea events. An Auto CPAP is set to have a range of pressures with a minimal pressure and a maximum pressure that will fluctuate. Your doctor will determine your CPAP pressures after a Sleep Study is completed. The purpose of the CPAP machine is to eliminate your sleep disordered breathing events.

One of the most important components of CPAP therapy is finding the proper CPAP mask. Our trained sleep technician will show you a variety of options to make sure you feel comfortable and feel the benefit of your CPAP therapy. Guardian Sleep offers a 30 day mask exchange program to make sure you are compliant with your therapy.
