In brief: With a lot of help
Cpap, which stands for continuous positive airway pressure delivers warm, humidified air through the nose or mouth and pneumatically splints the airway preventing closure during sleep.
CPAP can now be used with a large variety of masks. Most importantly, finding a trusted doctor and company who furnishes these machines will ensure initial education and close follow up to trouble shoot problems.
