Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) / CPAP

The word “apnea” means “without breath”. There are three types of apnea: obstructive, central, and mixed. The most common type of “apnea” is “Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)”. OSA is caused by the blockage of your airway. If you have OSA, you stop breathing repeatedly during your sleep and for periods of times that may last for a minute or longer.  To know more about OSA, visit our Links section. Great websites can educate you and your family.

CPAP – Continuous Positive Airway Pressure works by gently blowing pressurized room air through the airway at a set pressure determined during a sleep study in a local sleep lab. This prescribed pressure acts as a splint and will keep the airway open throughout the night. We welcome you to our office to see a wide selection of devices from the leading edge technology, different masks and interfaces to meet your needs and ensure your comfort.
