We get it, CPAP equipment expenses can add up, and it's tempting to try to save money by ordering products on Amazon, eBay, Facebook, and Craigslist. While it may seem like a harmless way to reduce some of the financial load associated with CPAP therapy, it may end up costing you more money in the end, not to mention there are serious health risks involved.
Ask around about people’s favorite CPAP machine and you’re bound to run into folks who swear by an APAP instead. They’ll tell you it’s life-changing. They’ll tell you they couldn’t stand regular CPAP. They may even claim an APAP device means you don’t need to see a doctor for sleep apnea. (Spoiler alert: Yes, you do.)

Well, it turns out there are some very good reasons for both. Today, we’ll take a look at the difference between APAP vs CPAP, and which is better for you.
