Hi letsgobuffalo12, welcome to Apnea Board.
If you haven't already, would be good to read carefully the following advice about machine choices:
In addition to asking the doctor to prescribe a humidifier and heated hose, before going to pick up the machine, I suggest asking the doctor to also prescribe a pressure range, such as 10 to 13, rather than straight 12. A good machine which gives Flow data and which distinguishes between central apneas and obstructive apneas is often important.
The APAP machines can be set up in basic CPAP constant pressure mode, if it turns out that would be best for you, but in most cases an APAP machine operating in APAP therapy mode provides treatment which is more comfortable as well as more efficacious.
