The Comfortable Alternative to CPAP
Today, more patients than ever are willing to take ownership of their well-being. Yet many are still unaware that they can talk to their physician about a major contributor to their health and happiness – their sleep. You have the power to change that.
Several studies have shown an association between sleep apnea and problems like type 2 diabetes, depression, strokes, heart attacks and even a shortened lifespan.
Aside from poor sleep going undetected, many patients don’t know that there are alternatives to CPAP and surgery.
TAP Sleep Care allows you to effectively treat the full spectrum of sleep-disordered breathing by offering your patients a range of holistic approaches dramatically improving their sleep and quality of life.

First-Line Therapy for OSA
While many patients believe CPAP is the only treatment option, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) state that oral appliance therapy can be used as first-line therapy for patients suffering from OSA.
It’s no secret that CPAP compliance is low. Masks, tubing and noise are just a few issues patients mention when using CPAP therapy.

For your patients who are already managing their snoring and sleep apnea with CPAP therapy but hate the uncomfortable straps, the myTAP PAP is a great alternative that may lead to higher compliance. By combining the upper tray technology of the myTAP and a traditional CPAP mask, myTAP PAP alleviates the common problems that too often lead to discontinuance of therapy. myTAP PAP’s upper tray anchors the mask in place. This stability means less movement, no leaks and no headgear. myTAP PAP also has the lowest pressure drop among nasal pillows and is one of the quietest on the market.
If your patients are still having troubling adhering to your recommended therapy to treat sleep apnea, you can recommend the customTAP PAP. This hybrid therapy combines a customTAP with nasal pillow CPAP therapy for ultimate ease and comfort.
