CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure)

Provides one constant air pressure all through the night

Nasal CPAP is a device that can be placed in your home to treat obstructive sleep apnea. The CPAP device works during sleep by gently blowing air from a machine into a mask applied over the person's nose. The air pressure keeps the airway open, thus eliminating the apnea and frequent awakenings. Nasal CPAP is the most reliable treatment method for sleep apnea.


· Automatic positive airway pressure (APAP)


· Therapy automatically varies the pressure all through the night and from night to night. It actively responds to the continuous changes in your upper airway

· If your nose is partithe common cold


Automatic Positive Airway Pressure

Bilevel therapy provides a higher pressure when you breathe in, and a lower pressure when you breathe out.

It is the most comfortable PAP device.

 It is indicated when  breathing out is difficult.


It is especially indicated in patients  who require high pressures to treat their Sleep Apnea  eg  Overweight patients  >  250 lbs

Because it is comfortable,  some  patients  opt for this device instead of a regular  CPAP  device




VPAP Adapt SV™ is an adaptive servo-ventilator designed specifically to treat central sleep apnea (CSA) in all its forms, including complex and mixed sleep apnea.

Unlike conventional sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) therapies such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), adaptive servo-ventilation:

· treats complex sleep apnea syndrome and central sleep apnea

· normalizes breathing, completely suppressing CSA and/or Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR)

· Improves sleep architecture 

(the amount of time the patient spends in slow-wave and REM sleep increases).
