CPAP is (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) is a type of non-invasive ventilation therapy. It is a medical device that delivers steady stream of air pressure to prevent obstruction of airway passage of patients suffering from respiratory issues during sleep. It provides only one level of pressure; Inhalation (IPAP). CPAP therapy is used to treat sleep apnea, as well as other breathing disorders.
