Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)

Continuous positive airway pressure mask

To address central sleep apnea, your doctor may recommend a positive airway pressure machine. Positive airway pressure devices used for central sleep apnea include continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), bilevel positive airway pressure (BPAP) and adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV). These devices deliver pressurized air through a tight sealing mask to help support breathing.
