Abstract

Continuous positive airway pressure is required by patients of obstructive sleep apnea to prevent any obstruction of airways. This requires CPAP machines which are costly, have electrical dependence and are not readily available. The nasal CPAP assembly devised by us overcomes most of these limitations and can be made from easily available materials.
