Sleep Apnea

CPAP Machines & Supplies Greenwood SCBy definition, sleep apnea is the cessation of breathing for periods of time greater than 10 seconds.  If you have sleep apnea, your airway collapses during sleep and prevents air from getting to your lungs.  You stop breathing momentarily, which causes sleep disturbance and puts a strain on your heart.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea:

  • Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
  • Poor Memory and Concentration
  • Loud Snoring
  • Frequent Urination at Night
  • Morning Headache
  • Irritability
  • Nighttime Snorting or Gasping
  • Depression

How CPAP, BiPAP/BiLevel and VPAP Therapy works:

PAP therapy will relive the airway obstruction that occurs while you sleep.  PAP treatment can improve the life of someone diagnosed with sleep apnea.  When you use the PAP therapy every night during sleep, and optimum therapy is achieved, you may experience the following benefits of the treatment:

  • Increased energy level and attentiveness during the day
  • Reduced irritability
  • Fewer morning headaches
  • Improved memory
  • Less waking during the night to go to the bathroom
  • Increased effectiveness at home and at work
  • Improved overall quality of life

Treatment Options:

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

CPAP devices deliver a constant gentle flow of air and are very effective treatment for sleep apnea.

BiPAP/BiLevel and VPAP devices deliver two levels of pressure – a lower pressure when you breathe out (exhalation) and a higher level of pressure when you breathe in (inhalation).
