Lastly, what is the difference?
Fixed Pressure Vs Automatic
A fixed pressure device (CPAP, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), is set by your health professional at a recommended air pressure level suitable for you. The device will deliver the set air pressure level in a constant manner throughout your entire sleep period once you start the device. However, this level of air pressure can be increased (or decreased) to your requirement.
An automatic CPAP device (APAP), can sense and calculate in 'real-time' the required pressure level that a patient requires at any given time during their sleep period. The device detects when a patient is about to stop breathing and increases the air pressure blown by the machine automatically to ensure a patient’s airway remains open during a respiratory event. As a patient’s breathing returns to normal, the air pressure automatically decreases and returns to the minimum pressure set by your health professional.
In terms of long-term Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) management, both CPAP and APAP devices have been shown to be of equal efficiency.
However, it is important to understand that lifestyle changes can affect a patient's pressure requirements. For example, weight and stress fluctuation may be better managed by the APAP device.
