OSA is the most common type of Sleep Disordered Breathing. An episode occurs when a person stops breathing for at least 10 seconds, while asleep. The primary cause is the soft tissue located behind the tongue, and directly around the throat. These tissues relax during sleep and become extremely flaccid. On inspiration they literally get sucked together causing the airway to collapse or “obstruct”. Complete or partial airway obstruction will delay, and even prevent oxygen from entering the lungs. OSA causes snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, cardiovascular disease, and weight gain.



CPAP therapy is prescribed to provide immediate relief from the symptoms caused by OSA. A CPAP unit is a small medical compressor that generates a preset pressure. This pressure is then applied to the patient’s airway through a correctly fitted CPAP mask. The pressure level is set high enough to prevent collapse or obstruction during sleep. Your respiratory therapist monitors therapy to ensure effectiveness, and initiates changes as needed.
