My wife just got her prescription for obstructive sleep apnea.
"cpap pressure range/settings of 5 - 15cmH2O".
"All cpap and bilevel therapy requires humidification, mask interface and is required indefinitely".
The clinic she was dealing with was very kind but their machines are very, very expensive. We do not have medical coverage. They may not have been overjoyed with my wife for not buying from them.
Now I'm trying to find a machine.
Does she need an "auto" machine or just a regular? I'm looking at system ones and resmed s9 elite. Both have humidifiers. I see other brands as well but they don't seem so popular.
I think we have the mask nailed down. An Airfit 10 (medium) I believe. She tried the nasal pillow type and she liked it but it was loud. Any advice on masks would be much appreciated as well.
Any advice or recommendations you can share would be invaluable to us. Thankyou. In the meantime I will research the threads here.
