Since the CPAP machines that we sell are the number-one, doctor-recommended treatment for OSA (obstructive sleep apnea), each machine that we carry offers a range of therapeutic benefits (at great prices). Many of our sleep apnea machine styles are also portable, which makes them easy to take along with you when you travel.
Health Canada-approved companies manufacture auto-PAP, Bi-level and CPAP machines. They include: ResMed, Philips-Respironics, Fisher& Paykel, HDMI, Transcend and Devilbiss. Selecting one these machines will be the best way to ensure that you get the world-class CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy that you need. After just a few days of CPAP therapy, you′ll begin to feel fresher, more energized and more excited about life.
Here is some other information about the numerous ways in which CPAP machines help to improve the health and well-being of sleep apnea sufferers:
CPAP Machines May Prevent Serious Side Effects of Sleep Apnea
Once you've begun using your CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine whenever you sleep, you'll begin to enjoy health benefits that happen almost instantly.
One of the prime benefits of using these machines is the way they may prevent heart problems, strokes, and high blood pressure conditions, such as hypertension, further down the line.
Since lack of oxygen during the night leads to immense strain on the body, regulating breathing through CPAP therapy takes the pressure off of your cardiovascular system.
Prevent or Improve Diabetes with a CPAP Machine
Since the risk of developing diabetes rises when sleep apnea exists, easing or eliminating sleep apnea with a CPAP machine is an excellent way to avoid this disease.
CPAP therapy may also regulate blood sugar levels if you already have the disease.
Taking care of yourself and feeling as good as possible is what effective sleep apnea therapy is all about...
Feel Stronger and More Energetic with CPAP Therapy
One vital benefit that you will enjoy within a few days of starting to use a CPAP machine is the way that it makes you feel healthier and more rested.
For many CPAP machines users, this benefit is literally life-changing.
If you've been too tired to go jogging, socialize in the evenings, or pursue your hobbies and goals, this wrenching fatigue is likely the result of your sleep apnea.
Using a CPAP machine will help you to enjoy life, because you'll regain the precious energy that sleep apnea took away.
You'll also perform better at work due to improved cognitive functioning, and you'll definitely handle problems better. Chronic fatigue affects the I.Q. and E.Q. (emotional intelligence) in very powerful and negative ways. Consistent use of a CPAP reverses chronic affects and restores your confidence.
CPAP offers a constant pre-set continuous pressurized flow of air that holds the airway open, allowing you to breath normally and sleep soundly.
Auto-PAP offers a variable (a changing flow speed according to your breathing needs) continuous flow of air that holds the airway open so you obtain normal breathing and deep sleep. In other words, an Auto-Pap adjusts pressure as you sleep to hold your airway open. This is a specialized unit, ask your sleep physician to see if this is for you.
Bi-level offers variable pressures for inhalation, plus exhalation. It is also known as "VPAP" or "BPAP" (variable/bi-level positive airway pressure). It provides two levels of pressure: inspiratory positive airway pressure (IPAP) and a lower expiratory positive airway pressure (EPAP) for easier exhalation. This is a specialized unit, ask your sleep physician to see if this is for you.
Your sleep physician assesses your Obstructive Sleep Apnea severity to determine whether CPAP or Auto-pap is right for you. Then, a prescription is written for you to obtain the pap device that fits your sleeping requirements. Consult your physician for more details.
Any PAP (positive airway pressure and auto pressure) machine can travel with you at anytime, anywhere. The overall design of modern PAP machines is geared toward travel. More and more PAP users are taking their PAP machines anywhere they go, making your PAP therapy more consistent and effective.
When a PAP machine becomes your own, either for travel or home use, a humidifier is included for extra comfort. Because dry air is flowing into you, you may experience dry mouth, nose and throat. A humidifier is important to alleviate and eliminate dryness. Some humidifiers detach so a smaller, compact PAP device can go with you. However, most PAP users will use the humidifier to start their sleep therapy. Over time, some decide it isn't necessary because they have adjusted to dry pressurized air. However, please keep in mind that humidity is very important in your therapy. Please be sure to include your CPAP humidifier in your sleep therapy, unless there are specific reasons to detach it or leave it empty with each use.
You now see how our complete range of PAP machines can make you sleep better and better.

Very disappointed with the quality of the Phillips Wisp mask frame and hose assembly. Seven to ten days after the 90 warranty the cloth-covered mask frame disintegrated on one side of the mask. I repaired the break with tape only to have the plastic clips on the hose cease to remain connected to the mask (more tape). I made the mistake of not contacting VitalAire immediately, and now have no recourse but to purchase new equipment. "Great warranty" folks on a cheaply made but expensive product.

Great service & prices !
I was on a clinical trial in a Montreal Hospital. The trial was nearing the end and it was time to return the trial machine and get my own. I shopped around Montreal and then online and found this site. They had the best prices (I saved around 800$ compared to Montreal prices!) and the service is great! They answered my e-mail very fast and did a follow-up. I am happy I found them.

I have been purchasing my CPAP equipment from this website for about 5 years. I have never had a bad experience with them. I can count on their professionalism each and every transaction. They have excellent prices, often half of what I was paying in retail stores in Edmonton, and their free shipping is fast and efficient. There is no need for me to look for CPAP supplies elsewhere. They are readily available to answer questions. I fully recommend them!
