At Premier Medical Equipment we provide patients with both CPAP and BIPAP machines. CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure, is a treatment that uses mild air pressure to keep your airways open. CPAP is typically used by those who have breathing problems, such as sleep apnea.
CPAP treatment involves a CPAP machine, which has three main parts:
- A mask or other device that fits over your nose or your nose and mouth. Straps keep the mask in place while you're wearing it.
- A tube that connects the mask to the machine's motor.
- A motor that blows air into the tube.
There are many kinds of CPAP machines and masks. Premier Medical Equipment carries supplies for sleep apnea from the following companies:
We currently carry all the major masks (including Swift FX, Mirage FX, Wisp nasal mask, Amara full-face mask and Quattro FX series of masks from these companies), and most commonly order the CPAP/BIPAP ResMed S9 series and the Respironics System One series.
Premier Medical Equipment also carries nebulizers for adults and children. A nebulizer is a drug delivery device used to administer medication in the form of a mist inhaled into your lungs. There are many different types of nebulizers, please refer to your physician for the one that will work best for you. Nebulizers are commonly used for the treatment of asthma and other respiratory issues. Premier currently carries nebulizer supplies from:
· Respironics (adults)
· PARI (children)
