‘Obstructive Sleep Apnea’ (basically where somebody stops breathing during sleep) is due to a blockage in the airway (hence the name) there is no cure. There are a variety of treatments that have been used with varying success. The most common is a CPAP machine- a device that acts as an airway splint, keeping it open so that the air can travel to your lungs. Many misconceptions have arisen regarding CPAP machines either about their noise or size but the reality is that MOST of them are small and fairly inaudible.
Home oxygen therapy is becoming more and more common: 'Oxygen Concentrators', machines that purify the air and deliver it straight to the user, are becoming quieter and smaller. There are even a number of these machines that are portable and so light that the wearer can carry it in his\her arm. With these machines come a range of accessories- cannulas that direct the flow of air into the nasal cavity, tubing that connects to the machine, masks etc. Please browse our range of oxygen therapy accessories.
