CPAP Clinic Q & A
What is the CPAP clinic?
The CPAP clinic at Respacare provides patients with sleep apnea with the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine and teaches them about CPAP therapy and how to use the machine when they sleep.
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that disrupts normal breathing while you sleep. There are three main types of sleep apnea:
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
OSA is the most common type of sleep apnea. With OSA, the muscles in the back of your throat relax while you sleep. When you breathe in, your airway narrows or closes, limiting the intake of oxygen.
Central sleep apnea
With central sleep apnea, your brain fails to send the right signals to the muscles that control your breathing while you sleep.
Complex sleep apnea syndrome
Complex sleep apnea syndrome means you have both OSA and central sleep apnea.
Am I a candidate for the CPAP clinic?
Your Respacare doctor determines if you’re a candidate for the CPAP clinic after a consultation. You may benefit from sleep apnea services and therapy if you have sleep apnea or suspect you have sleep apnea.
Before making any specific recommendations, your provider at Respacare may first conduct sleep disorder testing. The sleep medicine practice offers many types of sleep disorder tests, including a home sleep test.
If your home sleep test indicates you may have sleep apnea, your sleep medicine physician at Respacare recommends you undergo a thorough sleep evaluation.
What treatments are available at the CPAP clinic?
The on-site clinical sleep educator at Respacare monitors and evaluates your case of sleep apnea to provide a personalized treatment plan to get you a good night’s rest.
Treatment for sleep apnea includes continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. Respacare supplies you with your CPAP machine, including nasal pillow and mask, tubing, and other supplies.
The sleep educator at Respacare explains how CPAP therapy works and how to use your machine. CPAP therapy moves air through the tube and into the mask you wear when you sleep. The constant airflow ensures you breathe steadily through the night.
Once on CPAP therapy, your provider at Respacare has you come in regularly to monitor your treatment and adjust your plan as needed.
