Health Tip: Using Nasal CPAP

How it may help sleep apnea

(HealthDay News) -- Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a common treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. This mechanical device delivers slightly pressurized air through a mask that fits over the nose. It helps keep airways open, enabling adults and children to breathe easily through the night.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine lists these potential benefits of using nasal CPAP:

  • Improved and more regular sleep.
  • Improved alertness and decreased fatigue.
  • Improved mood and decreased depression and anxiety.
  • Improved productivity at work.
  • Improved memory and ability to concentrate.
