Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most common treatment for moderate to severe sleep apnea in adults. A CPAP machine blows air into your mouth and nose, or just your nose to stop the airways from becoming narrowed or blocked during sleep. There are many different kinds of masks. People who have severe sleep apnea symptoms generally feel much better once they begin treatment with CPAP. Sleep apnea will return if CPAP is stopped or not used correctly. CPAP treatment may cause side effects such as dry or stuffy nose, irritated skin on your face, sore eyes, and headaches.
CPAP Adherence Program: This program is directed by Sleep Specialist and Registered Polysomnography technician. The goal is to support patients as they get started on CPAP machine as well as to educate them about troubleshooting common issues that can arise while using the machine.
