How therapy works

Benefits of PAP therapy


CPAP therapy is a noninvasive, highly effective treatment that gently blows air into your nose and/or mouth to prevent your airway from collapsing while you sleep.
 

By taking your therapy to heart and using your machine every night, you can see a dramatic improvement in daily life and your overall well-being.

Get to know your CPAP machine


If you’re starting therapy, it’s helpful to understand how your machine’s components work.
No 1

Display settings

CPAP machines have different settings that allow your doctor to adjust air pressure. You should always be sure to use the setting your doctor specifies.

No 2

Tubing

Tubing passes air from the machine to the mask. It’s important to position the tube over or through your headboard so that you don’t pinch it.

No 3

Air filter

Filters ensure that you’re only breathing clean air. Some machines have one filter, while others include an ultra-fine filter.

A humidifier can connect directly to your machine to add moisture to the air you breathe.

 

Replacement schedule4

Air filter: every month

Tubing: every 3 months

Frequently asked questions

When should I start feeling better after beginning to use my CPAP?
Most people begin to feel better within the first week of use, though for some people it may take a little longer.
What if I still snore while using my CPAP?
Snoring while on CPAP should not happen. If it does, contact your doctor. Your pressure level might need to be adjusted.
What if I lose or gain weight over the course of my treatment or my old symptoms reappear?
You may need to have your CPAP pressure level adjusted. Contact your doctor.
If I need to be hospitalized for any reason, should I take my device with me and use it at night?
Yes. Also, if you are having surgery, it is important to tell the surgeon and the anesthesiologist that you are using CPAP at home. You should also tell the doctor treating you for sleep apnea that you are going into the hospital.
I just can’t seem to adjust to my CPAP therapy. What should I do?
Most people will adjust to CPAP in one to two weeks. Occasionally, it may take a little longer if, for example, you are very sensitive to the feel of the mask on your face or the sound of the device. Call your homecare provider or your prescribing physician if you continue to have problems beyond two weeks. Ask if you are eligible to try a bi-level or auto-adjusting device.
Why use a humidifier with a therapy device?
Humidifiers are designed to moisturize the air that is being delivered to you from the therapy device. There are two types of humidifiers – heated and unheated. Heated humidifiers do not “heat the air” but will increase the moisture content of the air delivered. Humidifiers can help to reduce some of the side-effects of therapy, such as dry nose.
What does tubing do?
The tubing is used to carry the air from the therapy device to the mask. You should clean and inspect your tubing at least once a week to make sure it is clean, bendable and that is doesn’t have any tears. If you think your tubing is ready for replacement, contact your homecare provider.
What do filters do?
Therapy devices come with filters. Some devices come with one regular filter and others come with two – one regular filter and one ultra-fine filter. See your device manual for details on caring for your filters.
