CPAP- or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure- devices assist Sleep Apnea patients getting required therapy. These medical grade devices are typically prescribed by your physician, following a sleep study to determine the type of device or the pressure setting needed. CPAP units deliver a fixed pressure of air into the lungs of the patient in order to maintain his/her airways open. With the help of CPAP therapy patients can enjoy a restful night of sleep and get rid of problems such as apnea events, loud snoring, morning headaches, etc. Please find below some of the top CPAP machines available:
DreamStation has a sleek and stylish design, making it easy to fit into any environment.

DreamStation also has a Bluetooth mode integrated which helps patients and their physician stay connected for an even more custom tailored and efficient therapy.
