Nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure

Nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is a nonsurgical treatment that provides a flow of air to the lungs from the nose. Nasal CPAP is a common treatment for those with, a sleep disorder that disrupts normal breathing and interrupts deep sleep. It may also help infants with underdeveloped lungs breathe more easily. Individuals of all ages who have obstructive sleep apnea often make good candidates for nasal CPAP therapy. Some obstruction in the airway typically creates these pauses in breath. Throat muscles that relax too much to allow normal breathing can block the flow of air. A large tongue or tonsils may also create an obstruction. A blocked ai rway can cause the individual to snort, choke, or gasp. At this point, the problem tends to correct itself and breathing resumes, only to become blocked again moments later
