CPAP Treatment for Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea prevents millions of Americans from getting the quality sleep they need. Fortunately, sleep apnea is a 100% treatable condition. The preferred method of treatment is CPAP, and you can get CPAP tailored to your needs and comfort at Neurology & Sleep Medicine in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

Understanding CPAP

CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. The treatment entails pressurized air delivered through your nose and/or mouth to support weak or loose tissues that obstruct airways. By keeping airways open, you enjoy stable blood oxygen concentration throughout the night and exert less effort to breathe, ensuring better quality rest.

Components of CPAP Treatment

There are two main components to CPAP treatment:

  1. CPAP sleep mask
  2. CPAP machine

Sleep masks are available in different styles to suit nose and/or mouth breathing during the night, and CPAP machines can be titrated to provide the highest level of comfort all night long.

Better Patient Care in Rio Rancho

There’s more to treating sleep apnea than ordering CPAP. To experience the benefits of treatment, patients need to use their CPAP mask every night. To ensure patient compliance, they need to be comfortable. At Neurology & Sleep Medicine, we offer better patient care by:

  • Performing a treatment sleep study to titrate your CPAP machine to your needs and comfort
  • Providing tips for adjusting to sleeping with a mask
  • Reevaluating your CPAP titration as needed to ensure ongoing treatment efficacy
