- Manual: They are also called fixed pressure CPAPs. They let you set your pressure responses to match your own needs. They are traditionally the least expensive.
- Auto: 95% customers choose this type because of the high usability and the reasonable cost. These machines automatically cater to your personal sleep needs during nights. They are often highly regarded because they are considered much more comfortable than traditional CPAPs.
- BiPAP/VPAP: BiPAP & VPAPs switch between two pressure settings, one for inhalation and the other for exhalation. The exhalation pressure is usually lower (still positive), and thus users notice less air pushback when they exhale. They utilize the latest innovations to maximize your apnea therapy satisfaction.
- BiPAP/VPAP/BiLevel ST machines: BiPAP, VPAP, and BiLevel ST machines can effectively treat central sleep apnea.
Even if you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea or other sleep disorders, you can still get a night of restorative sleep with continuous positive airway pressure machines. Our inventory is filled with best rated equipments from popular manufacturers like ResMed, Philips Respironics, Transcend, APEX, Fisher & Paykel, and many more. Obstructive sleep apnea is a disorder that causes reduced oxygen levels from shallow breaths and pauses in breathing throughout the night. It can also lead to other health issues such as high blood pressure. While this sounds scary, treatment with a CPAP machine has been proven to be extremely effective.
Talk to your doctor or sleep specialist to help you choose the right apnea machine that best fits your needs. Your treatment options include a machine (usually a tubing is included), and a mask. 99% of time, machines are compatible to any masks. Auto models are automatically adjusted to cater to your sleep needs. They are often regarded as much more comfortable than traditional models. Also, they require fewer sleep studies than manual CPAPs.
So, what’s the difference between BiPAP/VPAPs and CPAPs? BiPAP/VPAPs differ from CPAPs in that they have two-pressure settings, one for inhalation and another for exhalation. They are specifically designed for people who need high inhalation pressures but have difficulty exhaling due to the high pressure. BiPAP & VPAPs utilize advanced technologies to maximize your sleep therapy. We also offer BiPAP/VPAP/BiLevel ST machines to help treat central sleep apnea.
