Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is the Gold Standard in treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. In obstructive sleep apnea, your airway collapses or is blocked during sleep. When you try to breathe, any air that squeezes past the blockage can cause loud snoring. The mild pressure from CPAP can prevent your airway from collapsing or becoming blocked. A CPAP system includes a small machine that supplies a constant and steady air pressure, a hose, and a mask.
Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) therapy is a common treatment for obstructive sleep apnea in patients who have pulmonary lung issues, heart conditions, or nerve and muscle ailments. BiPAP delivers an inhale pressure and an exhale pressure. The device resembles CPAP machines and uses the same masks, hoses, and attachments.
Adaptive Servo Ventilation (ASV) is a medical technology that utilizes positive airway pressure ventilatory support that is adjusted based on the detection of apneas, or pauses in breathing, during sleep. It may be used for complex sleep apnea, mixed sleep apnea, or periodic breathing. While CPAP provides one continuous pressure, and BiPAP provides two pressures, ASV adjusts the pressure based on an algorithm. The device resembles CPAP machines and uses the same masks, hoses, and attachments.
