What is EPAP Therapy?

EPAP stands for Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure. EPAP devices have been shown in clinical studies to be safe and effective for treating snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea.

How does Optipillows work?

Optipillows EPAP Mask allows you to inhale easily with minimal resistance, but during exhalation, the air is directed through a narrow side opening, creating back pressure in the nose and mouth, preventing upper airway collapse. The size of the side opening can be adjusted to change the pressure for more comfort. Start using the mask with the side opening wide open, and close it only after you feel comfortable and begin to fall asleep as usual.

What Causes Snoring?

Snoring and airway obstruction are due to events occurring in the upper airway.  At the end of expiration, the upper airway is most susceptible to collapse because the pressure is low, upper airway is narrowest, lung volume is smallest, and muscles are most relaxed. Consequently, when inhalation begins, and a small negative is created, it causes potential upper airway collapse.
