Auto Adjusting CPAP (APAP Machines )
Auto CPAP machines (APAP) automatically adjust the pressure settings throughout the night based on your individual needs. How does Auto CPAP work? It uses an algorithm that detects airway closure and will increase or decrease as needed. This technology is great for people that change sleep positions which can cause apnea to be more severe and requiring a higher pressure. Weight gain or loss can mean that you need a pressure adjustment and the auto CPAP will do that for you without the need of undergoing another sleep study for pressure adjustment. These devices have a pressure range of 4 to 20 cm/H2O and can be set to auto mode or fixed pressure mode.
