CPAP Machine for Sleep Apnea Treatment

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the single most effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. Advances allow machines to be programmed to vary air pressure delivered through the sleep mask for increased comfort.

CPAP Machine Options

The CPAP machine concentrates air so that the air flow delivered to the mask has a higher rate of pressure than the surrounding air. The increased air pressure gently forces tissues in your airways back, ensuring easy breathing while you sleep.

For some people, one single rate of air pressure is not comfortable. There are CPAP machines that deliver:

  • Bi-level positive air pressure (Bi-PAP), which varies air pressure during inhalation and exhalation
  • Multiple positive air pressure rates (AutoPAP), which are selected based on the pressure needed to keep airways open during different stages of sleep and/or sleeping positions

All CPAP machines are titrated to meet your unique needs during a treatment sleep study at Neurology & Sleep Medicine.

CPAP Machine Coverage

Neurology & Sleep Medicine in Rio Rancho works with most insurance providers to cover the cost of your CPAP machine. Most insurance plans cover a new CPAP machine every three years. However, before getting a new CPAP machine, you should schedule a follow-up consultation to ensure that treatment is still effective and the current CPAP titration is meeting your needs.
