APAP Machines

What is an APAP Machine?

An APAP machine is used to treat Sleep Apnea that automatically adjusts therapy pressure on a breath-by-breath basis. APAP machines are advanced from CPAP machines because they can operate at any pressure range between 4 – 20, while a CPAP machine operates at one set pressure.

Benefit of an APAP Machine over CPAP?

APAP is more comfortable during sleep because they operate at the lowest possible pressure needed to open a blocked airway. CPAP machines use the constant pressure all the time, whether it’s too low or too high.
