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.
Select the machine you prefer and be on your way to better sleep today!
I was happy to be able to buy just the cushion for the mask, although I did feel it was very expensive at $75. It seems to have increased to more than double in the past year. However, it was shipped promptly and received within three days and there were no shipping charges. I hope we will continue to be able to buy parts for the mask and hope they will not increase anymore in price. It is cheaper to buy a complete mask, but if you have a few masks on hand that only need one or two parts it does not make sense to throw them out.

I wrote to CPAP Clinic & asked them if they had the soft wraps for sale separately from the head gear on a ResMed swift FX. They didn t at the time, but soon had them for sale on line. Great service.
Ever since my husband needed a C-Pap, we have been customers. Fantastic service and communication. Very individual help. Highly recommended. My last interaction with them was very satisfying.
