One of the most common types of therapy for obstructive sleep apnea is Positive Airway Pressure (PAP). The PAP device sends a gentle, steady stream of air through the nose and into the back of the pharyngeal cavity. The pressure delivered by the device prevents the collapse and blockage of the tracheal wall and soft palate thereby maintaining a patent airway.
Without proper guidance and encouragement, patients can easily become overwhelmed, even frustrated with this treatment, ultimately resulting in poor compliance. Because various published studies have indicated that the first month of PAP usage is crucial to compliance, our practice, in conjunction with carefully-selected third-party providers, has developed a unique management program. The program offers intensive patient counseling and education, monitoring for PAP usage problems and compliance and ongoing follow-up. Our highly-trained professionals work with the patient throughout the entire process. Our team members ensure the highest possible effectiveness by monitoring the patient’s progress through clinic visits and phone calls.
Consistent daily PAP usage for sleep apnea patients is the key to maintaining good health and preventing the onset of more serious consequences such as:
