CPAP MACHINES, CPAP MASKS AND CPAP SUPPLIES FOR SLEEP APNEA
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that is characterized by lapses of breathing during sleep. The symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring and daytime sleepiness. A doctor can order a sleep study to help in the diagnosis of this disorder. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive (OSA), which is where there is a partial blockage of the air passageway during sleep. The other rarer types of sleep apnea are central (CSA) and mixed. CSA is a lack of respiratory effort and mixed is a combination of both types.
Sleep apnea equipment can be used to help alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnea. Resmed cpap machines, Respironics cpap machines and Fisher Paykel cpap machines are the largest device manufacturers. The machines use air to open the obstructed airway. The primary types of PAP machines are cpap (continuous positive airway pressure), bipap (bilevel positive airway pressure) and cpap auto machine (auto-adjusting pap device).
CPAP supplies are used in conjunction with the devices and include items such as cpap tubing, cpap filters and cpap pillows. These items should be replaced at regular intervals to prevent respiratory diseases and infections caused by dirty items. We recommend changing c pap supplies every three months.
Sleep apnea masks are worn while sleeping to facilitate the delivery of the continuous positive airflow. CPAP masks come in all different types and sizes including full face cpap masks, nasal cushion cpap masks and nasal pillow cpap masks. Your personal Care Specialist will help you select the perfect mask for you. We carry all the top brands including Resmed cpap masks, Respironics cpap masks and Fisher Paykel cpap masks.
