Sleep apnea is now recognized as a serious and pervasive problem. Sleep disorders adversely affect one's health, mood and energy level as well as safety! A sleep study may be performed at a qualified Sleep Disorders Center to determine the presence and severity of sleep apnea. After medical confirmation that a patient suffers from obstructive sleep apnea, a device called a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is prescribed to maintain open airways. A similar device called a BiPAP is prescribed for some patients with additional needs. These devices provide airflow at prescribed pressures during sleep, eliminating the danger that is present when one stops breathing during sleep.
Most Medical Center Medical Products' patients using CPAPs and BiPAPs report:
