Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is when a mask is worn, attached to an extremely quiet, small, pressure pump to prevent sleep apnea. CPAP is a safe form of therapy, however as with any treatment there can be minor discomfort and complaints. These are fairly common and often manageable with the correct advice.
At the Sleep and Lifestyle Clinic we specialise in the implementation and monitoring of Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) therapy. PAP therapy will often result in an improvement in the symptoms of sleep apnea as well as having a number of positive health benefits. Our therapists have the experience and expertise that you need when starting PAP.
Expertise and trustworthy service which is tailored to your individual needs and goals is the hallmark of our consultations. Quality products from a variety of manufacturers are available for rental and purchase, along with unbiased advice to give you peace of mind when choosing equipment. The Sleep and Lifestyle Clinic invite you to experience the difference our products and services can make for you. Our staff provide you with the advice and training needed to maximise the benefits of PAP therapy.

If you don’t already have a copy of your sleep study results to bring along to your consultation, let us know which clinic you attended so that we may request them on your behalf.
