Sleep Apnoea, also spelt Sleep Apnea, can be defined as a disruptive sleeping disorder, identified by an inconsistent breathing pattern, by which the affected individual starts and stops breathing at regular intervals. Due to the irregular breathing pattern, affected individuals experience chronic fatigue, which if left untreated give rise to cardiovascular complications, diabetes, and a decrease in cognitive function.

The good news is that sleep apnea is completely treatable with the use of a CPAP machine, and at CPAP2Breathe we have a range of the best CPAP machines for sale in Nelspruit and we deliver our machines all throughout South Africa.

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

The most common of the forms of Apnoea, is caused by a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep.

Sleep Apnea is defined by the occurrence during sleep of pauses in breathing of at least 10 seconds, which recur at least 10 times per hour while asleep.

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome is when the spells of apnea are caused by an obstruction of the airways (nasal congestion, a voluminous of soft palate or a large tongue, for example).

Treatment

Treatment for sleep apnea is done by introducing positive airway pressure through a facial mask into the lungs by means of a CPAP or BI-PAP machine.

Various different sizes and types of masks are available in order to insure comfort for the effected individual. The selection of CPAP equipment is an important part of your therapy and not a decision to be rushed into. CPAP2BREATHE has a range of CPAP devices to meet your clinical needs.

CPAP2BREATHE uses CPAP devices that are globally recognised and of the highest quality.

Central Sleep Apnoea

Unlike OSA, the airway is not blocked, but the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe, due to issues with the respiratory control centre, or there is a weakness of the
breathing muscles.

This condition is different from obstructive sleep apnoea, in which you can’t breathe normally because of upper airway obstruction. Central sleep apnea is less common than obstructive sleep apnoea.

Central sleep apnoea can result from other conditions, such as heart failure and stroke.

Cheyne – Stokes Breathing

Cheyne-Stokes breathing: This type of central sleep apnoea is most commonly associated with congestive heart failure or
stroke.

Cheyne Stokes breathing is characterized by a gradual increase and then decrease in breathing effort and airflow. During the weakest breathing effort, a total lack of airflow (central sleep apnoea) can occur. Cheyne Stokes breathing is a type of abnormal breathing. It’s characterized by a gradual increase in breathing, and then a decrease.
