Diagnosis

When you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, your first best CPAP therapy choice is, typically, some form of positive airway pressure (PAP) medical device.

These all fall under the umbrella of what is known as noninvasive ventilation (NIV).

Which device you are prescribed depends upon what kind of sleep apnea you have—obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), central sleep apnea (CSA), or a combination of the two—as well as how severe you are, and what other types of health conditions effect your sleep-breathing problems at night. It may also depend upon how well you reply to any specified therapy.

What are the different styles of NIV therapy available? Let’s break them out.
