In October 2010, Sleep Medicine Associates expanded our services to patients using CPAP therapy. With the addition of Nancy Cosgrove, RT to our staff, Sleep Medicine began providing CPAP education, support, equipment and supplies. Nancy brings over 20 years of experience in sleep as a certified sleep technologist, sleep lab manager and champion sleeper.

Nancy is able to provide intensive support for new (and veteran) CPAP users when needed. She provides instruction and assistance with selecting the right CPAP mask and helping adjust the machine for greatest comfort. She is especially adept at providing the essential emotional support critical to CPAP success.

The CPAP room is stocked with a wide variety of sample masks to view and try. It is also equipped with a bed for the all important “lay down test” for mask fit. We even stock a special CPAP pillow for those with challenging mask leak problems. We are ready to address many specialty needs. For CPAP users going off the grid we carry a rechargeable lithium battery capable of powering a CPAP machine for 2 or 3 nights on a single charge.
