Hoses for sleep apnea

Definition of the application

Sleep apnea can be treated in a number of ways. The most commonly used therapy is referred to as CPAP (Continuous Positive Air Pressure).

During CPAP therapy, a patient is connected to a so-called CPAP device via a mask and a hose. At night, when the patient is asleep, the CPAP device delivers a constant air pressure to make sure the throat of the patient remains open during an arousal.
