Treating Sleep Apnea

After your diagnosis is confirmed by your doctor, Sleep Management Group will collaborate with both you and your physician to identify the most suitable treatment plan, focusing on post-diagnosis CPAP therapy customization.

The primary aim of sleep apnea treatment is to ensure your airway remains open while you sleep, and effectiveness varies among different treatments.

Given the varying degrees of sleep apnea severity, Sleep Management Group specializes in CPAP therapy, widely acknowledged as the most effective approach to treat sleep apnea.

CPAP therapy is regarded as the gold standard in treating sleep apnea.

How CPAP Therapy Works

bg-12-copy-1024x576 CPAP Therapy

CPAP, which stands for ‘continuous positive airway pressure,’ involves a compact bedside device that generates a steady air stream, maintaining an open airway as you sleep. This air flows through a tube connected to a mask that you wear each night. Thanks to technological advancements, CPAP therapy has become increasingly comfortable.

In tailoring your CPAP therapy, consider these steps:

  • Select the appropriate CPAP machine.
  • Choose a mask that matches your breathing style (mouth or nose breathing) and fits the unique contours of your face and head.
  • Explore accessories for added comfort, like humidity chambers to moisten the air, or tube swivels for easier movement during sleep.
  • Adjust the air pressure settings to balance effectiveness and comfort.
  • Your clinician will guide you on using the machine and offer tips for adapting to the therapy.
  • Most insurance plans cover a significant portion of CPAP therapy costs. While Sleep Management Group does not directly handle insurance verification, we can provide guidance on navigating the insurance process and offer flexible payment solutions.

You’ll have regular check-ins with your clinician during the initial weeks of treatment. They’ll monitor your progress, make necessary adjustments, and offer continuous support.

While some patients notice immediate improvements with CPAP therapy, many experience substantial benefits after the first 30 days of consistent use.

The Advantages of CPAP Therapy

Embracing CPAP therapy for sleep apnea is a lifelong journey that offers significant rewards. Many patients at Sleep Management Group report not realizing the extent to which OSA had been adversely affecting their lives until they experienced the transformative impact of CPAP therapy.

Committing to CPAP therapy with Sleep Management Group is a step towards better health. However, to maximize its benefits, it’s important to maintain your equipment regularly. Here’s why:

  • The seal of your mask degrades over time due to skin oils. A worn mask may need overtightening, leading to leaks and poor fit.
  • CPAP tubes can develop tiny punctures, diminishing the effectiveness of your therapy.
  • Regular use exposes your equipment to skin and breath, making them susceptible to bacterial and fungal accumulation, even with routine cleaning.

To ensure your CPAP therapy remains comfortable and effective, we recommend refreshing your supplies according to this schedule:

  • Mask: Every 6 months
  • Tubing: Every 6 months
  • Water chamber: Every 6 months
  • Filters: Every 2-3 months
