If you've been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, you may be hearing lots of new terms that you're unfamiliar with, including the different types of machines out there to treat your sleep apnea. Having a severe sleep disorder like sleep apnea is already stressful enough, but adding in learning the differences in treatment through APAP machines, BiPAP machines, and CPAP machines, the world of CPAP therapy can be overwhelming.
