How effective is CPAP at treating sleep apnea? CPAP is a very effective method for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing most commonly known as sleep apnea. It serves to keep the airway open during sleep, which effectively eliminates the sleep disordered respiratory advance or apneic advance that occur in individuals with sleep apnea. There is a learning curve associated with this treatment. Individuals have to learn how to make use of a mask interface for delivery of the pressure as well as get used to the pressure itself.
