Sound, humidity, portability, and technology are today’s top features when determining the best CPAP machine to buy. If sound level is an important feature, you need to look at each machine since some are quieter than others. Humidification is not always offered, especially on the travel CPAP machines. The function of portability has increased in demand that most manufacturers have developed entire lines of travel CPAP machines and travel accessories. Technology has designed remote monitoring so your technician can make adjustments to your machine, monitor your progress, or alert you when you need new equipment or supplies.
ResMed’s AirSense 10 is the top selling CPAP machine in today’s market, featuring a quiet sound level at 24 dBA, HumidAir integrated heated humidifier that is built into the CPAP machine, weighs only 1.8 lbs without the humidifier (when traveling), and has a built-in cellular technology so you get unprecedented access to therapy data.
