There are several types of sleep therapy machines, but a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine is the most common. A CPAP machine is designed to send a constant flow of airway pressure to your throat so that your airway stays open during sleep, effectively treating the spontaneous pauses in breath associated with sleep apnea.5

PAP therapy solutions: what's the difference?
CPAP, BiPAP and Auto-adjusting machines
There are several PAP therapy device options to treat your sleep apnea. Some patients can tolerate a steady, gentle flow of air during sleep, while others require variations in pressure. Talk to your doctor about your unique needs.
Philips machines include DreamStation 2 Auto CPAP Advanced, DreamStation BiPAP and BiPAP Auto SV and DreamStation Go portable CPAP solution.
CPAP provides one level of pressure to your upper airway throughout the night.
CPAP H2O levels per/cm
Auto-adjusting provides a variable pressure throughout the night based on your needs and sleep stage.
Auto H2O levels per/cm
BiPAP bi-level provides two levels of pressure throughout the night, your prescribed pressure on the inhale and a lower pressure on the exhale.

Frequently asked questions
When should I start feeling better after beginning to use my CPAP?
Most people begin to feel better within the first week of use, though for some people it may take a little longer.
What if I still snore while using my CPAP?
Snoring while on CPAP should not happen. If it does, contact your doctor. Your pressure level might need to be adjusted.
What if I lose or gain weight over the course of my treatment or my old symptoms reappear?
You may need to have your CPAP pressure level adjusted. Contact your doctor.
If I need to be hospitalized for any reason, should I take my device with me and use it at night?
Yes. Also, if you are having surgery, it is important to tell the surgeon and the anesthesiologist that you are using CPAP at home. You should also tell the doctor treating you for sleep apnea that you are going into the hospital.
I just can’t seem to adjust to my CPAP therapy. What should I do?
Most people will adjust to CPAP in one to two weeks. Occasionally, it may take a little longer if, for example, you are very sensitive to the feel of the mask on your face or the sound of the device. Call your homecare provider or your prescribing physician if you continue to have problems beyond two weeks. Ask if you are eligible to try a bi-level or auto-adjusting device.
Why use a humidifier with a therapy device?
Humidifiers are designed to moisturize the air that is being delivered to you from the therapy device. There are two types of humidifiers – heated and unheated. Heated humidifiers do not “heat the air” but will increase the moisture content of the air delivered. Humidifiers can help to reduce some of the side-effects of therapy, such as dry nose.
What does tubing do?
The tubing is used to carry the air from the therapy device to the mask. You should clean and inspect your tubing at least once a week to make sure it is clean, bendable and that is doesn’t have any tears. If you think your tubing is ready for replacement, contact your homecare provider.
What do filters do?
Therapy devices come with filters. Some devices come with one regular filter and others come with two – one regular filter and one ultra-fine filter. See your device manual for details on caring for your filters.
