CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure)

It is the most effective and definitive treatment for obstructive sleep – apnea syndrome. As a result of this treatment, snoring, respiratory arrest during sleep and other short and long -term problems arising from these diseases will be eliminated completely.

Basically, compressed air is provided via nasal by an adjustable pressure air compressor; the positive pressure which occurs in the mouth prevents loosening and blocking of airway during the sleep. For this treatment, patient must stay one more night at sleep laboratory in order to adjust the proper pressure and to determine whether the patient can tolerate the device. Nearly 70% of the patients who tried the device accept this treatment; while 30% of the patients think that; use of this device is difficult, while some of them can not buy the device due to economic reasons.
