CPAP accessories are integral to the treatment of sleep apnea. CPAP devices are used to provide artificial ventilation to patients suffering from sleep apnea. A continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine is commonly used to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This disorder occurs when the upper airway of the person becomes narrow when the muscles relax during sleep. As a result, the breathing slows down, resulting in imbalance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood. This is an abnormal condition, and if left untreated, can become life threatening. CPAP devices help patients manage sleep apnea and lead a normal life.
The main part of the CPAP equipment is the CPAP machine. CPAP accessories include nasal pillow, triangular nose mask or full-face mask. The machine delivers a stream of compressed air through a narrow hose to the mask or nasal pillow so that the breathing becomes continuous, enabling smooth airflow to the lungs. When the machine is turned on, a flow of air comes through the mask. When the mask is placed on the face and gets sealed, the airflow stops and air pressure builds up within the mask. This will force the air to flow into the nostrils.
CPAP filters are one of the critical CPAP accessories that are essential to keep the CPAP unit running longer and more efficient. The filters capture dust, contaminated air particles and other unwanted particles entering the nostrils. It is important that you select the best filter and replace them periodically to ensure that the air pumped by the machine is clean.
