How CPAP masks work?

A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) mask is the preferred mode of
treatment for individuals who have breathing difficulties whilst sleeping known as sleep apnea.

The CPAP machine provides constant air flow through a tube leading into the mask. Through the mask the slightly pressurized room air is delivered into your airway, making it easier to breathe. This constant flow of air allows your airways to stay open, this means that it is preventing your airway from collapsing, and ultimately closing your airway.

The amount of air pressure delivered by the CPAP device is dependent on how much pressure you need to keep your airways open; this is something that should be discussed with your GP before purchasing your CPAP machine to ensure that you receive adequate therapy.

It is important to remember that a CPAP machine is an effective treatment option for those who experience disrupted sleep relating to sleep apnea. However, if you stop using your CPAP machine after seeing positive results, it is likely after a short while that you will begin having disrupted sleep as your breathing will continue to be compromised.

How are CPAP machines helpful in preventing serious health conditions?

CPAP machines are an effective treatment option for individuals who suffer from sleep apnea an obvious sign of which is snoring. This is because the CPAP machine learns and adapts to your breathing pattern, it then provides appropriate pressure to maintain a patent airway, thereby making it easier to breathe.

Research has shown that CPAP device users report a decrease in fatigue during the day, lower rates of depression. Also risk of cardiovascular diseases is significantly reduced overtime if used for at least 7 hours a night.

Who can a CPAP mask benefit?
A CPAP masks can benefit anyone who suffers from sleeping disorders, in relation to breathing difficulty. CPAP masks allow users to experience undisrupted sleep, which can help users feel more refreshed throughout the day.

CPAP machines have been used as a treatment plan for individuals who have sleep apnea for over 30 years. A CPAP machine is one of the first treatment options that can be recommended by your doctor, as its effectiveness has been extensively researched.

How to decide whether a CPAP mask will benefit you
Before deciding to purchase a CPAP mask it is important to consult your doctor to find out whether this is a suitable treatment plan for you. This will result in periodic check-ins with your GP, who could potentially ask you to participate in sleep trials to ensure that your treatment plan is working.

It is important to keep your CPAP machines clean as they are an investment and if not maintained properly it may damage your machine. It is also important to ensure that you are using your CPAP machine every night. For optimum results it is recommended that you wear your CPAP mask for at least 7 hours of your sleep. CPAP device users reported they felt fatigued the following day, when they took a break from using their device for as little as one night.
