What is CPAP? It is a contraption that allows air to move into your air passes through the CPAP mask. When sufficient pressure is maintained by the air flow, snoring sound will be minimize or eliminated. Different types of mask exist for different individuals. There is a minimal lightweight mask position around the nose and jaw, while larger and heavier types looks more like goggles. Most models have strap that are fitted around your head and a pipe that comes from the pressurizing machine to your nose.
