We carry all types of CPAP machines, including BiPAP and Auto CPAP machines and their respective replacement parts. To view our selection of the type you need, see our category listings below, or, if you'd like to learn more about these machines and their respective benefits, continue with the information presented here, including a more in-depth analysis at the bottom of the page.
The type of CPAP machine you need will be determined by your doctor and will be included in a prescription for a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), Auto, or BiPAP machine, depending on the severity of the hypopneas occurring during the night. For patients that stay with CPAP therapy and are able to move beyond the initial adjustment period, the success rate tends to be very high. CPAP machines function by sending pressurized air to the patient through the tubing and mask. Each patient’s pressure is unique, and is set by a specialized sleep doctor based on the results of the sleep test. Pressures range from 1 to 20, from least severe to most severe. Patient’s don’t have to worry about having a giant machine on the side of their bed, as technology advances and innovations in the CPAP industry have driven the size of a machine down to the size of a shoebox, or sometimes smaller. We've also worked to keep prices low, as technology has increased, giving our customers a high quality, inexpensive machine to fit their needs.
The job of CPAP machines is to provide therapy to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Pressure is sent into your airways during sleep in a steady rhythm, this keeps airways open during sleep so that you are not woken in the night because you are not able to breathe. There is a wide variety of CPAP machines to choose one, so that you are completely comfortable with your machine.
Auto Adjusting (APAP) Machines automatically configure what pressure level of air should be given to a patient based on their breathing rates. This feature creates excellent amounts of comfort. This type of machine works best with patients whose air pressure changes throughout the night, the variation in airflow provides greater comfort.
Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) machines are best for treating more severe cases of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). BiPAP machines are capable of delivering a higher pressure during inhalation, and a lesser pressure during exhalation, often providing greater comfort. If you believe that your case of sleep apnea is a more severe one, a BiPAP machine will most likely work best for you.
There is a plethora of machine parts that will help you benefit the most from your CPAP therapy experience. Ensuring that your CPAP, BiPAP, or APAP machine works to its highest potential is the best way to provide yourself with a good night’s sleep. Make sure to update machine parts when necessary so that your machine continues to run at its highest ability.
There are various features that can serve to improve therapy and can create a customized feel to the CPAP machine, depending on the patient’s needs.
-Data Logging: some manufacturers are creating machines so advanced, that a patient’s sleep data are transferred over a wireless internet connection and thus a physician can monitor the sleep patterns to better adjust the pressure and improve therapy. If curious, you can also monitor your own sleep patterns.
-Humidifer: depending on your geographic area, you might need a humidifier to make breathing in the pressurized air more comfortable. If the air is too dry, the CPAP machine can be uncomfortable and most patients will consider giving up on therapy before the true benefits begin.
-Travel friendly: Some machines are more travel friendly than others. Depending on your job, you might find that taking your machine on the trip is a necessity. It would be wise to avoid the bulkier machines and instead opt for something more travel friendly, such as the Transcend wearable CPAP Machine.
-Filter: all machines typically come with one initial filter that is used to catch harmful particles from the air that would otherwise could be inhaled with the pressurized air. This way, you won’t wake up coughing after accidentally inhaling a piece of lint or dust and your therapy will remain smooth and consistent until you wake up.
These types of machines are the baseline CPAP experience that stay at a fixed pressure throughout the night. They are appropriate for patients with steady, predictable needs and will successfully prevent the air passageways from collapsing during the night. They are compatible with all types of tubing and masks, and are generally the least expensive of the different machine categories. This type of CPAP breathing machine has many manufacturers and there is constant innovation in the field.
The APAP machine, which stands for Auto Adjusting Positive Airway Pressure, or simply auto machine is a favorite among CPAP users as it has the ability to sense changes in your breathing patterns and adapt the pressure accordingly. Generally, it ramps the pressure up to a higher setting when it senses that an apnea or a hypopnea is occurring to maintain unobstructed airways. Because of this advanced feature, many sleep doctors who work closely with their patents favor these breathing machines for sleep apnea because of advanced tracking features, which can then be used to prescribe higher quality care to treat the Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
BiPAP, also known as BiLevel or Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure, machines are an advanced type of CPAP machine for sale that delivers a higher pressure during inhalation, and a lower one during exhalation. This is typically for patients who may not have as strong of a respiratory cycle. While these machines are slightly more expensive, they tend to be the most comfortable as the advanced technology delivers a completely custom pressure schedule to fit your needs. All major manufacturers such as Resmed, Respironics, and DeVilbiss have designed a breathing machine for sleep apnea to improve your sleep comfort.
This section is where you can find parts to maintain and upgrade your CPAP, Auto, or BiPAP machine in the event of a part failure. The products range from data cards for easy sleep tracking to solar chargers that can be used while camping, all meant to improve the function and use of CPAP breathing machines.
