Types of CPAP Machines

Like Masks, there are a few different types of machines that can be used to treat Sleep Apnea. The most common is the CPAP Machine, but we also have BiPAP and Auto CPAP Machines. We offer top brands such as Fisher & Paykel, ResMed, and Respironics. Here is a quick breakdown of the types of Machines that we offer:

CPAP Machines

 

The Standard CPAP Machine is the most common type of machine used to treat sleep apnea. A CPAP Machine delivers continuous air pressure to help the patient manage their sleep apnea. CPAP stands for continuous positive air pressure.

 

Auto Machines

 

Auto Machines, are similar to a standard CPAP Machine. Auto Machines also delivery air to combat sleep apnea, however they change the air pressure during the course of the night to match the demands of the patient. If an Auto Machine detects that a user is struggling to breathe at a certain pressure setting, it was adjust to ensure that they are getting the right pressure.

 

BiPAP Machines

 

BiPAP Machines do just what their name indicates. They provide two levels of pressure, one for inhalation and one for exhalation. As a person breathes in, they may need a stronger ammount of pressure than when they breathe out. BiPAP is able to provide that for them. BiPAP is especially helpful for those who struggle to exhale against the pressure of a CPAP machine.
