Following your sleep study and your return to your doctor's office to discuss your diagnosis and treatment, you may be referred to SleepMed Therapy to begin your treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
The most effective treatment to date for OSA is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). A CPAP device provides gentle and continuous air pressure through the nasal passage during the night. This continuous pressure helps to ensure that your airway remains open so that you can breathe properly and get a good night's sleep.
If you are scheduled for a CPAP set-up or just curious as to what happens during this visit, we invite you to take our "SleepMed Therapy Video Tour of a CPAP Set-Up" by clicking here and scrolling to the bottom of the page.
