CPAP Machines

If you suffer from Obstructive, Central or Complex Sleep Apnea, we’re here to help. CPAP and BiPAP machines are the two most popular products for treating disordered sleeping. These machines have quite a lot of similarities with the exception of a few differing functions. Keep reading to learn more about which product is right for you.


CPAP Machines

 

CPAP machines come with a single pressure setting that stays the same throughout the night. Many models come with a ramp feature, which allows the machine to start out at a low-pressure setting and gradually increase. Once the CPAP machine reaches the prescribed level of pressure, it will stay there for the night. Many users prefer this option because it offers gentle pressure rather than instant bursts of high pressure, which can be overwhelming.

Another option is a BiPAP machine, which comes with two settings. One setting is for inhaling with the prescribed pressure and the other is set at low pressure for exhaling. Dual settings make it easier for the user to get more air in and out of their lungs. High-pressure strengths can make it difficult to exhale because of the strong incoming air. If you have trouble exhaling against the single pressure setting on a CPAP machine, a BiPAP might be more suitable.

 

 

 

Travel CPAP Machines

 

Travel CPAP machines allow sleep apnea patients the ability to stay safe and comfortable without compromising their freedom. These portable, travel friendly devices can fit into almost any backpack or purse while still providing all the advanced features of a regular sized CPAP machine. Most travel CPAP machines have a lithium-ion battery which is rechargeable.
