Does this scenario sound familiar? You have a snoring problem. You come into a sleep lab to have a sleep study conducted and find out you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea.
The next thought is “ok, so how do I treat my sleep apnea?”
The most common way to treat sleep apnea is to be put on a positive airway pressure (PAP) machine while you sleep. PAP Therapy involves placing a small mask or nasal pillows over the nose or nose and mouth and blowing compressed air into the lungs.
PAP machines are also known as Durable Medical Equipment (DME). DME is the medical term for long lasting medical equipment prescribed by a doctor for use in your home.
