Sleep Therapy Machines

Few things are more important to your health and quality of life as getting a good nightís sleep. This can be impossible if you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a serious condition that occurs when a personís throat muscles relax during sleep and block their airways. Sleep apnea sufferers will snore and wake up frequently during the night. In severe instances, a person can stop breathing entirely and put their health at risk.

The only effective treatment for sleep apnea are sleep therapy machines. CPAP, biPAP, VPAP and Bi-Level units create positive airway pressure to ensure that people can breathe while they sleep. By wearing masks that direct air into their airways, people with sleep apnea can sleep through the night without snoring and wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Sherman Oaks Medical Supplies carries a wide range of sleep therapy machines and related accessories. Take a look at some of our products:

CPAP Machines

A CPAP machine is the most common way to treat sleep apnea. CPAP machines deliver a constant flow of pressure to stop a person's muscles from constricting their airways. Modern CPAP machines are practically noise-free and require less maintenance than ever. After purchasing a CPAP machine, most people see instant results. Newer CPAP machine models have settings to help people who struggle with pressure changes and can come with additional features such as built-in humidifiers.

BiPAP, VPAP, Bi-Level Machines

Not everyone can tolerate the constant pressure provided by a CPAP machine. For these people, using BiPAP, VPAP or Bi-Level machines are often the right choice. For example, a BiPAP (Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure) delivers a different amount of pressure when a person breathes in and out. Some people find BiPAP machines more comfortable to use than CPAP machines, and their use can help patients with specific conditions such as COPD.

CPAP Full Face Masks

CPAP users have choices when it comes to the masks that they wear to deliver air pressure to their airways. CPAP full face masks are traditional masks that cover a person's nose and mouth. People who breathe through their mouths may find that full face masks are more comfortable and effective than nasal masks. Full face masks are also good for people with persistent sinus issues or who frequently get colds.

CPAP Nasal Masks

CPAP nasal masks offer a less invasive option when compared to full face masks. A nasal mask only covers a person's nose rather their nose and mouth. This can lead to a more comfortable fit and stop leaks for people who turn in their sleep. Nasal masks are also ideal for individuals who feel claustrophobic when using a full face mask. Finding the right mask for you is often a matter of personal preference.

CPAP Humidifiers

One of the potential drawbacks of using a CPAP machine is that nasal passages can become dried out from the constant stream of air flowing into the passages. This can lead to sinus congestion and pressure. This can be combated by using CPAP humidifiers, which add moisture to the air that is going into the nasal passages and airways. This keeps passages from drying and can help people to sleep without waking stuffed up and congested.
