Which CPAP Machine for Sleep Apnea is Right for Me?
For most people new to sleep therapy it can be a difficult task understanding the differences between all the different CPAP device options you have. In most cases, your physician determines the type of therapy device and pressure setting you need but what about the people that have been on therapy for a while and would like to know the different therapy options that are available now but were not available when they were first diagnosed. In all cases we suggest speaking with your physician prior to any therapy device change, but carefully read your options.
CPAP is the most commonly prescribed and proven treatment for sleep apnea. CPAP therapy is sometimes a broad reference to the therapy for treatment of sleep apnea, hypopnea, Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), flow limitation, and snoring; however there are many different devices that fall in to the positive airway pressure (PAP) family.
