CPAP Machine: Advancement of the Sleep Apnea Machine
Alleviate to Treat Your Sleep Apnea with A CPAP Machine
A familiar misconception is that sleep apnea is a common condition that has more to do with loud snoring than any potential risks to your health, but those who suffer from sleep apnea know that’s not true. Defined as a temporary cessation of breathing during sleep, sleep apnea is a medical problem that when left untreated, can lead to severe long-term health concerns.
Fortunately, modern scientific advances in polysomnography and sleep studies have enabled us to diagnose sleep disorders and prescribe a treatment more effectively without the need for surgery or other invasive therapy techniques.
Many individuals diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have found that a sleep apnea machine (more commonly known as a CPAP machine) can safely control their symptoms while avoiding the detrimental health consequences of sleep deprivation. Finally, sleep apnea sufferers are getting the good night’s sleep that the rest of their body needs to lead a healthy and productive life.
Do I Need A Prescription To Use A CPAP Machine?
A doctor typically prescribes a CPAP machine to an individual after he or she has completed a thorough diagnostic sleep study. Once you receive your test results from your family doctor, we’ll be able to start you on a CPAP machine that is right for your condition and budget.
We work closely with local health care professionals and medical insurance providers to ensure that your experience is a positive and informative one. Please go to your doctor to see if you qualify for our free level 3 testing which is a simple, non-invasive, take home sleep apnea diagnostic device.

How Does the CPAP Machine Work?
CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. The CPAP machine, connected to the user through a facemask, provides relief by pumping air into the patient’s airways. The positive airflow keeps the airways open while the person is sound asleep, thus eliminating the cessation of breathing that occurs due to sleep apnea.
Auto CPAP Machines: These machines automatically adjust the pressure depending on a few variables such as breathing rate, blood pressure and other important information inputs.
Standard CPAP Machines: fixed pressure CPAP machines provide a continuous stream of pressure while they are turned on. They are great for people who suffer from COPD and require constant airflow pumped throughout the night.
Auto-CPAP & CPAP Machine Packages: We offer individual CPAP machines, as well as a range of therapy support products. Each machine we carry is designed to meet a user’s specific needs and our sleep apnea therapy machines come with lifetime support and care from our highly trained professional staff here at Clinical Sleep Solutions.
