About Sleep Apnea


Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing throughout the sleep cycle. These interruptions, called apneas, are caused by the collapse of soft tissue in the airway, which prevents oxygen from reaching the lungs. If you have these breathing disruptions mostly when you’re sleeping on your back, it’s called positional obstructive sleep apnea.

Both kinds of sleep apnea disrupt the sleep cycle and can dramatically impact energy, mental performance and long-term health. It’s important not to ignore potentially dangerous symptoms, such as snoring and excessive daytime sleepiness, and to consult a sleep specialist.

Treatment can help you get the kind of sleep you need to help you feel more like yourself every day.

What is CPAP therapy?

There are several types of sleep therapy machines, but a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine is the most common. A CPAP machine is designed to send a constant flow of airway pressure to your throat to so that your airway stays open during sleep, effectively treating the spontaneous pauses in breath associated with sleep apnea.

Treating your sleep apnea will positively impact your life by increasing your energy, alertness, and overall happiness. Begin a healthier, happier life with sleep therapy.

Benefits of PAP therapy

CPAP therapy is a non-invasive, 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.
