CPAP Therapy: Continuous Positive Airway Pressurisation
CPAP therapy,or "Continuous Positive Airway Pressurisation"was developed almost 20 years ago by Professor Colin Sullivan in Sydney, Australia. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have now been successfully treated via CPAP therapy.
CPAP therapy is nearly 100 percent effective and so it is generally considered to be the 'Gold Standard' for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing, especially severe obstructive sleep apnoea.
CPAP Is Now Comfortable, Undetectably Quiet And Highly Effective
CPAP therapy delivers gently pressurised air into the airway through a specially designed mask which is attached to a discreet and extremely quiet pressure pump. The CPAP pump does not 'breathe' for the wearer; it simply creates an 'air splint' by gently inflating the airway and holding it open so that the patient can breathe without obstruction while asleep.
Recent advances in pump technology make modern CPAP machines almost undetectably quiet. A wide variety of different CPAP masks, headsets and accessories are available to ensure a completely comfortable night's sleep.
