CPAP: Continuous Positive Airway Pressurisation
CPAP (Constant 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 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.
CPAP therapy is nearly 100 percent effective and so it is considered to be the 'Gold Standard' for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing, especially obstructive sleep apnoea.
However, many people do not succeed with CPAP therapy. In the vast majority of cases, this is because they have not been properly introduced to it and helped to optimise everything.
That's why our CPAP therapy nurses will take the time to help you become fully accustomed to your treatment and will keep working with you until you (and your partner) enjoy better sleep than ever before.
We literally guarantee effective treatment for our patients.
