You may believe you are suffering from sleep apnea and would like to purchase a CPAP machine. Unfortunately, a CPAP machine can’t be sold or rented without a medical prescription.
A CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine is a class II medical device. It is prescribed when the patient suffers from sleep apnea. CPAP is only prescribed for sleep apnea therapy and cannot be used to treat other sleep disorders.
CPAP purchase: If you have a prescription
If you have already been diagnosed with sleep apnea and have a prescription, we invite you to make a free appointment with a sleep specialist. During this visit, the doctor will evaluate your profile in order to provide you with the right machine for your needs. We will briefly explain the function of your CPAP and will book follow-ups with you at no cost. We pride ourselves on exceptional service and patient care.

Things to consider when buying a CPAP machine
Remember that you will be using your CPAP machine daily for medical reasons. Therefore, you need to buy a machine that meets your needs and expectations. Your mask should perform well while providing comfort.
It’s a good idea to consider the following questions when purchasing your CPAP device:
– Will you be traveling with your CPAP or is it just for home use?
– Do you need additional accessories (heated humidifier, power supply…)?
– Do you need to share your data instantly with your doctor (wireless connectivity)?
