Allina Health Sleep Centers

Allina Health Sleep Centers is a network of services for people who have difficulty staying awake during the day, falling asleep at night and/or staying asleep.

What is a CPAP machine?

CPAP stands for "continuous positive airway pressure." A CPAP machine delivers slightly pressurized air through a mask worn over your nose while sleeping. This keeps the windpipe open and prevents episodes of obstructive sleep apnea.

After using CPAP regularly, many patients enjoy normal sleep patterns, and wake up feeling more alert and energetic.

It can take time to become used to a CPAP device. The first few nights of CPAP therapy are often the most difficult, and some patients may actually sleep less at the start of treatment. However, it is important to use the machine for the entire night.

Modern CPAP machines have many adjustments that can be made to make them more comfortable.
