What is CPAP - Dubai
CPAP machine stands for “Continuous Positive Airway Pressure” and is most commonly used while sleep as a safe and effective treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) also known as stop breathing while sleeping & snoring.
The CPAP system pump blows air pressure which then goes through the tube & the mask into the throat. CPAP helps treat sleep apnea by maintaining this flow of pressurized air. The pressure of the air keeps the throat open while you asleep, helping prevent or to reduce apneas from happening.
The CPAP machine is used by patients who have been diagnosed with (OSA) obstructive sleep disorder or sleep apnea. CPAP is necessary to ensure that the individual’s airway remains unobstructed and able to transmit oxygen to the lungs.
the machine helps to treat OSA, such as stop breathing while sleeping, loud snoring, sleepiness, lack of energy during the day, or waking up with a very sore throat, you may find out whether you’re in need of treatment.
you may go under sleep study test. Sleep studies can be done in the patient's home or at a sleep lab. Either way, you will need to give your patient a referral or prescription for them to pass on to the sleep study provider. During a sleep study, your patient's breathing, body movements, and responses during the night are monitored to see if he or she has a sleep disorder such as sleep apnoea.
We provide a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment machines and service for the full range of Sleep Disorders and Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), Snoring, Insomnia, Narcolepsy and associated Neuro-Psychiatric and Medical and Dental conditions. also information and details about Polysomnography (sleep study test) so what is CPAP Dubai & different between cpap and auto cpap machine in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah in UAE as below:
There are 2 types of CPAP machine:
1) CPAP MACHINE: Pressurised air is pushed from the CPAP machine through the tubing into the CPAP mask and enters through your nose and into your throat, where the slight pressure keeps your upper airway open. This feels quite natural and while it may take a little time to get used to the mask itself, the pressure of the air has no sensation.
2) Auto CPAP MACHINE (APAP): APAP machines works the same way as CPAP but with the added benefit that the sleep apnea machine automatically adjusts the pressurised air through the CPAP mask, on a breath by breath basis, to blow the minimum pressure needed to keep your airway open during sleep. This provides you with the ideal pressure throughout the entire night. An added benefit to this is that the sleep apnea machine automatically adjusts its pressure to your changing needs. For example - if you lose weight or sleep on your back then change to your side.
As you can see in the below picture which indicates the black line of both a CPAP and (APAP). In comparing the CPAP & APAP output pressure , notice CPAP air pressure is constant but APAP pressure rises and falls while sleeping.
