CPAP or continuous positive airway pressure, is a treatment that uses mild air pressure to keep the airways open. CPAP typically is used by people who have breathing problems, such as sleep apnoea.
In the past CPAP was considered the gold standard of treatment for sleep apnoea, yet after a year only 40% of patients are still using the machine due to the face mask and the level of noise involved.
Despite this, in some cases, using a CPAP machine can be a very effective treatment for snoring and sleep apnoea. Most patients experience renewed energy and less daytime sleepiness.
Dr Levi will let you know if a CPAP machine is the right treatment for you. The cost of a CPAP machine ranges between $2000 and $4000 depending on the machine.
