Aerophagia in CPAP Users: Dr.K.O.Paulose FRCS
Aerophagia (from the Greek “aerophagein” meaning “to eat air”) is the excessive swallowing of air. Since CPAP provides a continuous flow of air to the body, it is not surprising to find that aerophagia is a common complaint for patients using CPAP therapy. Aerophagia can also occur during CPAP therapy when the air pressure is too high, resulting in the air being forced into the stomach.CPAP-related aerophagia may also be more related to the presence of GERD.
