From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Automatic Positive Airway Pressure abbreviated APAP, is the most advanced form of treatment for sleep apnea. An APAP machine incorporates pressure sensors and a computer which continuously monitors the patient's breathing performance. It adjusts pressure continuously, increasing it when the user is attempting to breathe but cannot, and decreasing it when the pressure is higher than necessary.
