Sleep Apnea Equipment

First Community Care of Bassett is a leading provider of sleep apnea equipment, including Bi PAP and CPAP machines. First Community Care offers a full complement of styles, and we will work with you and your health care provider to identify the right machine and mask. Through ongoing service with our respiratory therapists, we will ensure that you have the right fit.

CPAP Therapy

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy works by creating positive pressure within the back of the throat, preventing collapse and apnea. Positive pressure is delivered by the CPAP machine to the airway by a mask or nasal pillows. After a period of acclimating to the mask and pressure, most patients experience more restful sleep.

Bi PAP Therapy

Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (Bi PAP) therapy involves two different pressure settings for patients and is used to treat more than just sleep apnea. Two different pressures are set on the machine, one for inhalation and a lower pressure for exhalation. Dual settings allow more air into and out of the lungs without the normal muscular activity needed to do so. This form of airway pressure therapy is useful for patients with congestive heart failure and different types of lung disorders.
