The Differences in CPAP Masks

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, your doctor may have prescribed that you use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. A CPAP works to keep your airway open while you sleep so that you can continue breathing even when you are in the deep REM stages of sleep. While most people assume that all CPAP machines are the same, this is false. There are many different kinds of CPAP machines, all with their own strengths and weaknesses.
