If you were diagnosed with sleep apnoea it is essential that you discuss your alternatives for treatment with a sleep physician.
Treatment options can vary from:
Weight loss, referral to a sleep endocrinologist, bariatric surgery.
Mandibular advancement splint and CPAP.
CPAP or Continuous Positive Pressure Ventilation is one type of therapy and is a well-tested treatment alternative for sleep apnoea.
If your sleep physician recommends CPAP
We highly recommend you test a machine before you purchase to make sure CPAP is the appropriate treatment option for you.
We recommend the use of mask fitting by a senior sleep therapist. When you use CPAP mask fitting it is very important. Facial structures and preferences differ markedly between patients and getting a proper mask fit by an experienced sleep therapist will make a huge difference to your treatment. During this trial period, on-going support will be given to you online and face to face as needed.
Perform the CPAP trial with good support. All our machines have the online capability and we can keep track of your response and troubleshoot without repeated visits to the clinic. We encourage you to check the suitability of as many masks as possible during this period.
