Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

Introduction to Obstructive Sleep Apnea 

If you have moderate to severe sleep apnea, lifestyle changes alone are often inadequate to correct your condition.  A medical device called a CPAP machine may be prescribed by your physician.

Most patients using a CPAP machine have a condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). During sleep, the muscles in the back of the throat relax, causing the upper airway to become smaller.  In some patients, the upper airway can collapse, causing a blockage of air movement into the lungs.  When airflow is stopped for at least 10 seconds, it is referred to as an apnea.  

Sleep Apnea should not be taken lightly, and can create further and more serious health complications for patients if left untreated.  But with successful treatment, patients with OSA (and their loved ones) can enjoy more restful sleep and greatly improved health.

Our team will work with you and your doctor to coordinate proper equipment set up, give instruction on use and cleaning, and provide ongoing support throughout your treatment!  We offer CPAP setup and education in a classroom-style clinic, which is beneficial for most patients, and also individual CPAP setup appointments for those who need them.  

Our customer support enables patients to take control of their own treatment through a division of Rotech known as Sleep Central.  Sleep Central specializes in providing the highest quality CPAP equipment and supplies used to treat sleep apnea to patients across the US.

Routine replacement of CPAP and BiPAP supplies is crucial to managing your sleep apnea and overall health; learn more about how to get your replacement CPAP and BiPAP supplies and equipment order started.
