Understanding the Cpap Machine

CPAP basically stands for continuous positive airway pressure. Mild air pressure is applied continuously on patients who are not able to spontaneously breathe on their own. They assist the alveoli which are found in the lungs to get more lung surface area which allows ventilation. It is useful for people who suffer from conditions such as sleep apnea, respiratory diseases in children and bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

The CPAP machine has three main parts:

*Mask and other devices: They fit over the nose and mouth. It has straps.

*Tube: Connects mask to the motor of the machine.

*Motor: Blows air into the tube.
