Life requires many decisions. What to wear, what to eat, what to do, who to call. Sometimes, you just need someone to lay out all the options and help you choose. That’s exactly what we’ve done for you here at AmericareCPAP.com. We want to help you make important decisions about your health, your sleep health to be exact. Call 866-344-2774.
If you are shopping for CPAP or BiPAP machines (or VPAP), that means you’ve already made some positive decisions about your health. Nice!
First, you decided to talk to your doctor about your sleep habits, which probably led you to being diagnosed with some type of sleep apnea (or you wouldn’t be on our website, right?). Which leads us to another example of stellar decision making – you decided to take your doctor’s advice about getting a breathing machine for sleep apnea. People who use CPAP therapy for sleep apnea are getting the best sleep of their lives, and you can too. But, it’s all about finding the right machine for you.
At AmericareCPAP.com, we have a large selection of products to choose from on our website. Our customer service reps are extremely knowledgeable, too. They will ask the right questions and help you make a wise decision. So, whether you like shopping online or prefer to talk to a real person, we can accommodate you.
If you are just getting started, these are decisions you need to make right off the bat.
Do you need a CPAP or BiPAP machine?
Chances are, your doctor has already told you what type of machine to get – CPAP or BiPAP. That’s one decision you don’t have to make. CPAP machines provide a continuous flow or pressurized air while BiPAP and VPAP machines offer variable air pressure that can be adjusted to your normal breathing rhythm throughout the night.
Do you need a full face mask, nasal mask, or nasal pillow mask?
This decision can be a little tricky for first-time users. Your doctor should recommend what to get based on the severity of your symptoms and the way you typically sleep. If you need help deciding, check out this handy guide.
What other features are important to you?
We sell CPAP and BiPAP machines designed to everyone’s lifestyle and budget. Our customers tend to be very brand-loyal, and we sell a lot of ResMed products. It can also help to talk to someone you know who uses CPAP therapy – ask them how they decided which machine to get.
Some of the design features you might consider are:
- Quietness (especially if you do not sleep alone)
- Size of the machine
- Portability (do you need a travel-size machine?)
- Appearance (some are pink!)
- Extra features, such as heated tubing or an SD card slot
The masks we sell are also designed with a variety of features. Some of made especially for men or women, for example. The way the straps fit and feel can vary.
Cost can certainly be a factor, but for most people, their health insurance is pitching in to cover all or some of the cost for your equipment including regularly scheduled maintenance/replacement parts. If you have questions about cost and insurance, please do not hesitate to contact us at 866-344-2774.
As you can imagine, it is hard to know what to buy without trying it out for yourself. It is a hard decision to make! That is exactly why we suggest talking with one of our associates. They know which products to recommend based on personal experience and feedback from other customers. They can also explain our return/exchange policy if you are unhappy with your purchase.
