CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) Therapy is generally considered as the gold standard form of treatment for sleep apnea. The continuous flow of gentle pressurized air will hold the airway open while we breathe in and out during sleep.
Your Physician will prescribe the amount of air flow that you need and we will report your CPAP progress to your Physician. Your Physician will need to know how many sleep apnea type events you are having while you wear your CPAP mask. Sometimes your physician will ask us to measure your oxygen level.

Bilevel (Biphasic-Inspiratory Phase & Expiratory Phase) Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) Therapy is the type of therapy prescribed by physicians for people who are needing more support to manage their sleep disordered breathing.
When CPAP pressures aren't enough, BiPAP devices are designed to give extra support or a gentle 'boost' when you breathe in. Some BiPAP devices have a backup breathing rate. BiPAPs are more sophisticated than CPAP and there are several types of BiPAP devices. Your Physician will tell us which type of BiPAP is needed to treat your specific type of sleep disordered breathing.
Generally, BiPAP is only prescribed after you have seen a sleep medicine specialist or a lung specialist.
We're here to help! If during BiPAP therapy, you develop issues with dry mouth, mask leaks, discomfort from mask or anything of concern, please call us. We will work with you to resolve any BiPAP issues. We are proud to offer lifelong service provision to meet you and your Physician's expectations.
