The most effective obstructive sleep apnoea treatment
Once a patient has been diagnosed with sleep apnoea, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the recommended treatment. CPAP is recognised as the gold standard of obstructive sleep apnoea treatment.
A CPAP machine prevents a patient’s upper airway from collapsing during sleep by providing a flow of air through the nose and/or mouth using a specialised mask.
Pharmacy Sleep Services know that the most critical part of CPAP therapy is the mask, that’s why Pharmacy Sleep Services offer all market leading brands – to tailor therapy to your patients.
Types of masks
Full face masks
Full face masks let you breathe with your mouth open while you sleep.
Nasal pillow masks
Nasal pillow masks provide a seal around each nostril with minimum contact to the face.
Nasal cradle mask
Nasal cradle masks eliminate contact with the bridge of your nose.
On the nose nasal mask
Nasal masks are ideal if you breathe through your nose while you sleep.
CPAP therapy trial
Pharmacy Sleep Services know adjusting to therapy can be difficult, that is why we work with pharmacies to offer a 4-week trial of CPAP therapy.
During this time pharmacies deepen their relationships with their patients, by tailoring therapy (changing mask or device settings) to help patients adapt to therapy, and continue long term use.
