What are Some Features of APAP Machines?

Auto-adjusting positive airway pressure (APAP) machines are all the rage lately.  Unlike a traditional CPAP machine which is set on only one pressure, APAP machines are able to automatically adjust to the pressure required to keep your airway open yet keep you comfortable.  These machines are a great option for patients who find their pressure changes throughout the night as they can adjust even between breaths; your doctor can let you know if an APAP machine might work best for you.  

There are a number of new AutoPAPs available on the market.  One of the most popular is the DreamStation Auto PAP by Respironics.  This top of the line machine adjusts to your required pressure flawlessly and even has A-Flex pressure relief that helps to reduce discomfort while exhaling.  Nowadays you can even hook up your machine to your smartphone via bluetooth, and the Respironics DreamStation app will sync automatically so you can share your therapy data with your doctor easily.  The modern design of this machine make it ideal to fit into your decor and lifestyle.  Many users of the DreamStation compliment the sleek design, stating that it could easily pass as a clock or music player on your bedside table.  All of these great features make the DreamStation a great option to treat your obstructive sleep apnea.
