CPAP/BiPap (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) Equipment
Continuous positive airway pressure machines and bilevel positive airway pressure machines are used to treat obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that causes individuals to stop breathing for a few seconds at a time throughout the night. These devices gently blow air through a mask into your airway in order to keep tissues in your throat from collapsing and stopping your breathing.
These devices consist of a small motor that compresses room air, a hose to deliver the pressurized air, and a mask.
A prescription from your physician is required.

Coping with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
COPD is an umbrella term for a group of illnesses that make breathing more difficult: emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and asthma. Patients who have COPD use supplemental oxygen and nebulizers to help ease their breathing and relieve other symptoms. Lifespan Home Medical supplies patients with the equipment they need to live well with COPD.
