CPAP/BiPAP Therapy Equipment

For nearly everyone who has been diagnosed with sleep apnea, the conversation quickly turns to possible treatment options. The most effective and commonly used ones CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) and BiPAP (bi-level positive airway pressure).  What is CPAP/ BiPAP? Take a moment to learn about the basic components of CPAP/BiPAP equipment, including the mask, tubing, and humidifier. Whether you are a new or existing CPAP/BiPAP user, our home medical equipment experts at Promedcare can assist you.


As a comfort measure humidity is added to the air that is delivered with an attached humidifier. This is integrated into most CPAP/BiPAP machines. The chamber generally consists of a plastic reservoir that can be filled with distilled water. Heated humidifiers include a small hot plate that increases the amount of evaporation and moisture put into the inhaled air.

As the air passes over the water, direct evaporation occurs, and the humidity of the air increases.


The next component that is standard to all CPAP/BiPAP machines is the hose or tubing. The tubing is typically made of a flexible plastic, allowing some degree of movement. It is typically about six feet long and connects the main output of the machine to the mask. It may be heated and have a temperature setting that you can control to prevent condensation of water into the tubing.


The mask is undeniably the most important part of your experience. It is where the “rubber meets the road” and it will make you fall in love with your CPAP/BiPAP machine – or hate it. There are three basic styles of masks: nasal pillows that sit in the nostrils, an over-the-nose nasal mask, and a full-face mask that covers the nose and mouth. There are dozens of mask styles available, which makes it all the more important in how to choose. Work with your Respiratory Therapist to find the best mask for you.


Discover how CPAP/BiPAP effectively treats sleep apnea by delivering air pressure via a face mask.

What is CPAP Therapy?

CPAP is the gold standard treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. How does CPAP work? It is a machine that provides a constant flow of pressurized air that helps to maintain an open airway by preventing its collapse. This air is delivered via a fitted mask and tubing from the machine. CPAP has little side effects and is also effective in eliminating snoring. Although there are many different manufacturers of CPAP equipment, each unit consists of the same basic components.

What is BiPAP Therapy?

BiPAP therapy is the preferred choice for treating central sleep apnea, cases of severe obstructive sleep apnea, or mixed sleep apnea. In these instances, CPAP therapy may not be enough to get users the extra air they need. That’s where a BiPAP machine becomes an alternative treatment. BiPAP therapy is a great treatment for users who have other medical conditions that make it hard to breathe, like asthma, congestive heart failure, obesity, and more.

CPAP/BiPAP Machine

The CPAP/ BiPAP machine is the workhorse of your treatment. With a small motor, it takes in room air, filters it, and generates the air pressure that is the mainstay of treating sleep apnea. The prescribed pressure level is often determined through a sleep study.  However, it can also be set with an autotitration function that automatically determines the pressure needed to keep your airway open. The pressure settings are determined by your sleep physician and set by your equipment provider.

Most models have sophisticated methods of tracking your use with an internal modem. This data can be shared to a cloud-based data storage that can be remotely accessed by your provider. This can help your doctor to assess your compliance to the treatment. It also may determine whether insurance will pay for your continued therapy.

Oxygen Therapy

The air we inhale travels to the respiratory system’s main hub of organs and tissues, energizing the airways and lungs to help us properly breathe. The airways serve as passageways for oxygen-rich air to enter the lungs and an exit for carbon dioxide while the oxygen is absorbed into the bloodstream as it makes its way to the heart.  For some individuals, however, certain chronic conditions and illnesses restrict these pathways and prevent them from getting ample amounts of oxygen into the blood.

To increase the amount of oxygen in the blood stream and to improve the overall quality of function for the lungs, supplemental oxygen therapy can be prescribed to give patients the extra boost they need to breathe better and enjoy a better quality of life.


For those customers who require oxygen therapy, we carry a wide array of current model oxygen concentrators. Our oxygen concentrators are manufactured under the high-quality guidelines of each manufacturer.  All of our models, which include 5 and 10-liter machines, are maintained to factory specifications as well as being compact and lightweight for convenient handling and comfort during use.


We specialize in portable oxygen systems including the Invacare® Homefill™  and portable oxygen conentrators for the active patient on the go. Invacare® Homefill™ I Oxygen System is a revolutionary home oxygen filling system that allows you to fill your Invacare® oxygen cylinders over and over. No more waiting for oxygen deliveries. You have the freedom to go where you want when you want. Our tanks come in a wide variety of sizes, including M9 tanks, D tanks, M6 tanks, and E tanks, which can be used for portability as well as an emergency backup.

Note: Not all insurance providers cover portable oxygen concentrators and not all patients will qualify for one.

Pulse Oximetry

The purpose of the pulse oximeter is to provide a noninvasive estimate of oxygen saturation in the blood. Pulse oximetry is a well-established tool routinely used in many settings of modern medicine to determine a patient’s arterial oxygen saturation and heart rate.  The decreasing size of pulse oximeters over recent years has broadened their spectrum of use.  For diagnosis and treatment of sleep-disordered breathing, overnight pulse oximetry helps determined the severity of disease.

Oxygen Supplies

We carry a wide selection of cannulas, tubing, masks, etc. in a variety of lengths and sizes that are also soft against the skin and are kink-free.

Nebulizer Machines

Nebulizers create an aerosol that releases medication directly into the lungs without needing specialized breathing techniques. This is done so through a facial mask or mouth piece that attaches to the compressor by a tube. With the mouth piece or facial mask in place, simply breath as you normally would until the vapor has completely dissipated.

Nebulizer machines are intended for home use, as they require an electrical outlet to be plugged into. Portable nebulizers use a battery to operate instead of a power cable and are small enough to fit into a bag or purse. All of the portable models we carry use rechargeable batteries and many have the option for a car power adapter.

Nebulizer Kits & Supplies

Nebulizer kits are easy-to-use, hand-held and disposable or reusable. Also, they are compatible with all portable and home use compressors, offering fast nebulization times with greater particle density.  A disposable nebulizer kit should be replaced roughly every two weeks and a reusable one should be replaced every 6 months.
