A fat white woman in a fuzzy gray and white bathrobe sits cross-legged on a bed with white sheets in a modern-industrial room with beige walls, orange lamp cords and wood accents. She is wearing the mask and tubing of a CPAP machine. The machine sits next to her on a side table.
A continuous positive airway pressure machine, or CPAP, delivers a consistent flow of air to a mask worn over the mouth, nose or both. It’s often used as a treatment for the health condition sleep apnea.
