CPAP Q & A

What is CPAP?

Continuous positive airway pressure or CPAP therapy is an effective solution that helps patients with sleep apnea achieve quality sleep by delivering a pressurized supply of oxygen throughout the night. When used routinely, CPAP can help improve the overall quality of sleep and minimize daytime symptoms such as early morning headaches, excessive daytime fatigue, poor concentration, depression, irritability, and sleepiness during normal day routine activities. As your Austin sleep apnea equipment suppliers, Texas Sleep Medicine can diagnose and provide patients with the latest CPAP devices that are simple to use, comfortable, and operate quietly while you sleep.

How do I know if I need CPAP?

Texas Sleep Medicine offers a comprehensive approach to the treatment and care of patients with sleep apnea. One of the most effective ways to determine if you have sleep apnea is by participating in a sleep study that helps measure: heart rate, eye movements, breathing patterns, brain waves, oxygen levels, apnea-hypopnea index, and leg movements. The data collected from your sleep study will help our team determine the type and severity of sleep apnea you have.

How does CPAP fitting work?

After a sleep apnea diagnosis is made, your journey to better sleep starts with a Texas Sleep Medicine CPAP specialist that will help you select a mask for your comfort, understand how the machine functions, and explain how to use your device effectively. One of the most important components of your new machine is the mask. As part of our service, our team will help fit you with a variety of mask designs to determine which option best fits the size of your face and offers optimal comfort while you sleep. After completing our device training and mask fitting, you can take your unit home with you the same day. If you have any questions or concerns once you arrive home, our sleep experts are available by phone to help guide you through the process.

In addition to providing CPAP supplies at our Austin, Texas sleep clinic, we can also ship replacement masks or other components directly to your home. The success of your treatment is our priority, that’s why we make it easy to maintain and replace critical components of your device wherever you’re located. Our knowledgeable CPAP specialists can provide cleaning instructions, as well as a maintenance schedule to keep your machine functioning optimally throughout your sleep apnea treatment.
