Insurance Covered CPAP Explains What Is Auto CPAP Therapy
Insurance Covered CPAP, a MedSource LLC company, has recently released a blog post titled, “What is Auto-CPAP Therapy?” This article is for those who already know about continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines and have come across the term Auto-CPAP therapy. Auto-CPAP is short for automatic positive airway pressure, which is one of the three primary types of positive airway pressure or PAP therapy. The three types are the CPAP, Auto-CPAP, and the bilevel or variable positive airway pressure (Bi-PAP).
All PAP therapies depend on a machine that is connected by a tube to a mask and this mask is worn by the patient while sleeping to ensure that the airways are open. Auto-CPAP is different from the standard CPAP machine, which provides a continuous level of air pressure. The Auto-CPAP machine automatically adjusts to the breathing needs of the patient. The breathing needs of a person can change throughout the night, depending on the stage of sleep the person is in.
The Auto-CPAP machine will continuously measure how much resistance there is in the person’s breathing. The machine will either increase or decrease the pressure depending on what is required. Typically, it will increase the pressure if the person is snoring or when it detects a flow restriction. Various factors can affect the amount of pressure needed to ensure that the person’s airways are open. These include: the anatomy of the airway; the stage of sleep; the body position while sleeping; the presence of nasal congestion due to cold or allergies; and the use of muscle relaxants or alcohol.
In summary, the Auto-CPAP machine will only deliver pressure when it is required. Thus, the Auto-CPAP machine can be beneficial for patients who are unable to sleep with the conventional CPAP machine.
Obstrucive sleep apnea (OSA) is a potentially life-threatening condition that occurs while person is asleep, resulting into a decrease in the amount of oxygen that gets to the lungs of the person. Estimates indicate that around one in 15 people suffer from OSA and 80 percent of those who have it are undiagnosed. If the condition is left untreated, it can result into potentially life-threatening health problems, such as stroke and heart problems.
For those who have OSA and want to get a CPAP machine, Insurance Covered CPAP can help.
