CPAP Machines and Mask Australia
Corrective Positive Airway Pressure is a means of airflow regulation for people who have sleep apnea complications. Sleep apnea is caused when an individual’s normal sleep pattern is interfered with by interruptions of sudden breathing difficulties in their sleep. The person may not know they suffer from sleep apnea until they are told by another person for example a spouse who notices these interruptions in sleep. This condition however, can be treated using CPAP masks or a ResMed mask. We deliver all our CPAP machines and Mask to Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and all other major cities in Australia.
CPAP Masks are used for treating snoring and also irregular breathing. The CPAP masks eliminate “shocks” when the individual wakes up by their way of corrective flow of air when a person is sleeping. A good thing about CPAP masks is that they are tailored by specialists so that they meet the different levels of needs in different people. First, a person goes through a sleep study to help the doctors to assign the best CPAP mask. These masks provide mouth airway, nasal, or both. Unfortunately, some CPAP masks may end up covering the face of the wearer depending on the intensity of the sleep disorder.
In CPAP, there are many CPAP masks in the market that physicians may recommend to their patients. Some people turn too many times in their sleep to hold a huge nasal mask, hence a light weight nasal pillow mask option would be the most preferred as their CPAP mask. Also, some people prefer natural airflow as they have allergies that would require more oxygen circulation in their system. Doctors may assess a patient and recommend them CPAP masks that enhance higher pressure settings.
Limitations of CPAP Masks
In CPAP, the delivery of pressure can be interfered with in case the patient has sinuses blockage, allergies or a cold. Nasal CPAP masks may not be the best for patients who find themselves breathing more often with the mouth. This may necessitate closure of their mouth forcefully and it this renders the patient uncomfortable. Some users feel pressure in the nose’s bridge and forehead which is uncomfortable.
