CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure)

Whether you’re suffering from excessive snoring, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or some other type of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) problem, we can help.

Many of our patients benefit from CPAP therapy― a CPAP device delivers continuous positive airway pressure during periods of sleep. The device, worn simply as a soft mask over the nose, helps air get into the lungs during sleep by assisting with inhaling. The machine provides a precise and prescribed flow of air into the throat and keeps your airway open.

We have an extremely high success rate by patients using CPAP to eliminate apneas and snoring― and most importantly to achieve recuperative restful sleep.

Your Treatment Plan

While many clinics offer access to CPAP devices, the Sleep Center of the Rockies is the only completely comprehensive sleep center in northern Colorado. We diagnosis patients, recommend treatments and therapy, supply the equipment as well as follow up with CPAP compliance.

CPAP Therapy and Devices

Sleep Center of the Rockies CPAP devices are the most innovative and comfortable machines available. Many offer therapy tracking software and heated humidification. Our staff will program your machine with a personal air delivery algorithm to match your needs.

  • Traditional CPAP machines - provide continuous pressure
  • Auto adjusting CPAP devices (APAP) - adjust in a breath-by-breath basis to your ideal pressure.
  • BiPAP machines - deliver two separate pressures: a higher pressure when you inhale and a lower pressure when you exhale.

Your Personalized CPAP Therapy

Our CPAP machines are equipped with smartcard technology, including software that monitors your progress. Your CPAP therapy plan will be customized to your needs. We will also set up your CPAP equipment at home, including: custom fitting of your mask, setting humidifier controls, and setting temperature controls. Your machine will monitor:

  • Average pressure
  • Number of hours the machine is used
  • Advanced machines can capture leak rates and therapy data averages for specific time frames. Some machines allow for drill-down analysis into a single night, for example, to determine when you're prone to apneas (i.e. early morning)
