Sleep Apnea Devices and Supplies
At Lehan’s in Rockford, we understand how challenging it can be to reach your sleep therapy goals, especially if you’ve been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and are new to the equipment. When you come to Lehan’s, our medical supply professionals will work closely with you and your physician to fully understand your medical needs before suggesting the best sleep apnea device and supplies for you.
Also known as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, CPAP machines are among the most popular and effective treatment options for individuals suffering from a sleep disorder or sleep apnea. A CPAP mask is placed over a patient’s nose and mouth and delivers a constant stream of air flow to the throat, where tissues are likely to collapse during sleep. While CPAP machines come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and air pressure, our medical supply experts will work with your primary physician to determine which CPAP machine is best for you.
BiPAP machines are very similar to CPAP machines and provide a non-invasive form of therapy for patients suffering from sleep apnea or a sleep disorder. Also referred to as Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure, BiPAP machines provide patients with a little more variety and flexibility. While CPAP machines are set to one constant singular pressure, BiPAP devices can be set to provide two types of pressure settings: the prescribed pressure for inhalation and a lower pressure for exhalation.
Regular cleaning and supply replacement is essential when it comes to caring for your sleep apnea machine and reaching your sleep therapy goals. Lehan’s offers a resupply program to clients that automatically alerts them when their medical supplies are due for a reorder or cleaning, helping them stay compliant and healthy.
