CPAP devices deliver a continuous flow of air to the upper airway through a mask that the patient wears over their nose and/or mouth during sleep.

The air pressure created by the CPAP machine keeps the airway open and prevents it from collapsing during sleep. CPAP is the best option for treating Sleep Apnea and does not involve surgery or drugs. Most patients experience immediate relief of their Sleep Apnea symptoms, although it may take weeks or even months for complete recovery in severe cases.
