What is CPAP therapy?
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, or CPAP, is a machine used to treat patients with sleep apnea. CPAP machines are used for the treatment of sleep disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea, abnormal breathing, and other breathing disorders during sleep. CPAP machines are able to keep airways open during sleep by using mild air pressure. CPAP machines also prevent the airways from collapsing during sleep.
CPAP machines have a mask to cover your nose and mouth that is connected to a motor by a tube. The sleep specialists at Gwinnett Sleep will work with you to make sure your CPAP machine is set up properly. We will work with you to find the most comfortable and effective machine option.
What is BiPAP?
Bilevel positive airway pressure, or BiPAP, machines are non-invasive breathing machines. Similar to CPAP, BiPAP machines also have a mask connected to a machine through a tube. The main difference between the two is that bilevel pap devices deliver two levels of air pressure, whereas a CPAP machine is a continuous level of air pressure. CPAP is typically the first option for those with obstructive sleep apnea. If the CPAP machine is not working for the patient, BiPAP is an alternative option.
The CPAP clinic at Gwinnett Sleep provides a variety of services at our Lawrenceville and Duluth locations.
