For those living with sleep apnea, getting enough oxygen while sleeping is the goal, though it is not always thought of that way. CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy is used to treat sleep apnea by forcing air with prescribed pressure to the CPAP machine user, so the airway is open and they breathe properly during sleep. Sometimes, however, this is not enough. When this is the case, it may be necessary to have oxygen bleed in.
If you have started CPAP therapy and your doctor ordered an overnight oximetry test to be taken while you are using your CPAP machine, it was done to test the adequacy of your treatment, to make sure treatment is working for you. The results of this test will reveal whether or not you need to supplement your treatment with oxygen. If an oxygen bleed in is needed, you will hear from your medical equipment company that your doctor has sent in an order for oxygen based on the results of your overnight oximetry test. A representative will call you and after verifying your insurance, arrangements will be made to have an oxygen concentrator delivered with tubing. As well, an enrichment adapter will be included and this is how the oxygen will be fed into the CPAP tubing. This way, when the CPAP machine operating, the mask will also supply you with oxygen bleed in, as well as the prescribed pressure of air to keep you breathing well while you sleep.
