What's a CPAP device?

"CPAP device" is a general term often used to describe various devices that treat sleep apnea. These devices deliver air through tubing and into a mask to keep your airway open while you sleep. This process is known as sleep therapy and is designed to help you get a restful night's sleep.

Understanding the 4 types of Devices

One pressure

A CPAP is a fixed-pressure device, which means it delivers one consistent airflow pressure that is set by your doctor.

Auto-adjusting pressure

An APAP is an auto-adjusting device that changes your airflow pressure level throughout the night based on your sleep position and what stage of sleep you're in.

Two air pressures

A bilevel is ideal for people who have trouble adjusting to airflow pressure. It includes two pressure level settings: a higher pressure when you inhale, and a lower pressure when you exhale to improve breathing comfort.

Travel-friendly

Travel CPAPs, like ResMed AirMini, offer many of the same benefits as a traditional device with the convenience of being much smaller. AirMini is the world's smallest CPAP, weighing less than a pound and fitting in the palm of your hand.

Struggling to adjust to your therapy?

Getting used to the consistent, pressurized airflow of a CPAP or APAP can be challenging.

A bilevel device may help you breathe easier and enjoy a more restful therapy experience. If you're struggling with your current device, ask your equipment provider if a bilevel is a good option for you. If so, your physician will need to update your prescription.

How to choose the best device for you

global-icon-number-1

Receive a prescription.

If you're diagnosed with sleep apnea, your sleep doctor will prescribe a type of device based on your personal therapy needs and determine your airflow pressure level.

global-icon-number-2

Discuss with your doctor.

During your appointment with your sleep doctor, ask questions! Discuss the different devices and the various airflow and pressure settings so you both decide what's going to be most comfortable for you. You're also able to request a ResMed-specific device.

Get your device set up.

Your CPAP equipment store will set up your device with your doctor's prescribed settings and help you feel comfortable with your therapy equipment. If you go with an APAP device like an AirSense 10 AutoSet, have them verify it's on the AutoSet therapy mode instead of CPAP (it includes both options).

Ask questions at the CPAP store.

We encourage you to ask questions at your CPAP equipment store. They're the ones who will monitor your nightly therapy and help troubleshoot any issues you may experience with your CPAP therapy, device or mask.
