How does PAP or "CPAP" therapy work?

CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) treats OSA by providing a gentle flow of positive-pressure air through a facial mask to keep the airway open during sleep. As a result:

 - Breathing becomes regular during sleep

 - Snoring stops

 - Restful sleep is restored

 - Quality of life is improved

 - Risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack, stroke, and motor vehicle and work accidents is reduced
