Sleep Products

CPAP and BiPAP machines are available for patients with obstructive sleep apnea.  These products are prescribed by physicians for patients who have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).  After having a sleep study, patients with sleep disorders often have these products prescribed to help prevent sleep apnea due to an obstruction.  The pressure for these machines, and whether the patient needs a  CPAP or a BiPAP machine is determined from a sleep study.

Sleep studies are usually done in a sleep laboratory and have technicians that monitor the patients stage of sleep, vital signs, and apneas as the study progresses.  If appropriate, the technician will apply a CPAP or BiPAP machine to prevent apneas (and/or snoring) if they occur.  The technician will increase or decrease the pressure of the machine to achieve optimum benefit for the patient to prevent snoring and/or apneas.
