How Does a CPAP Machine Work

Despite their increasing complexity in function and design, all CPAP machines operate around a few basic principles. These machines feature a compressor that generates pressurized air which continuously travels through a tube. This tube is connected to a sealed mask and delivers air to the patient’s airways. 

Through this process, the CPAP machine is able to push against the normal blockages that would cause someone with sleep apnea to stop breathing. When well-adjusted, these machines keep patients from continuously waking up during the night to breathe. While this process may seem simple, a number of factors like air pressure and type of mask need to be determined by the clinician for the best results. 


The Importance Of CPAP Machines

CPAP machines are by far the most common technology employed to treat sleep apnea. Discovered millennia ago but becoming common in the last few centuries, sleep apnea is characterized by a stopping and starting of sleep throughout the night. For most people, this condition simply leads to bad, disjointed sleep, but it also could lead to other health conditions and be fatal in rare instances. 

As other conditions like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and others interact with sleep apnea, they increase the chances of severe, life-threatening conditions arising. CPAP machines directly address sleep apnea by keeping the patient’s breathing continuously through the night. 

Are There Any Side Effects?

Though CPAP machines continue to improve over the years, there are still some side effects that some users report when using them. Below are some of the most common side effects that are reported from CPAP use: 

  • Dry mouth
  • Skin irritation
  • Nasal congestion
  • Discomfort
  • Difficulty falling asleep 
  • Feeling bloated with air 

If you have more questions about the side effects of particular machines and masks, please speak with your clinician, therapist, or a member of our team for more information.
