Sleep apnea is one of the modern inconveniences that far too many people don’t even know they are struggling with. With feelings of sluggishness and irritability, and more noticeable symptoms, like waking up with a gasp, sleep apnea is normally the diagnosis that connects the dots. And when you have become aware of your sleep disorder and how it is affecting your waking life so drastically, there are a few things you can do to get your life back on track, like getting a CPAP machine.
ResMed is one of South Africa’s leading CPAP machine suppliers and at Fountain Circle Medical, they are one of our go to companies. The CPAP machine is the name given to a machine designed specifically to treat sleep apnea. The machine works to provide air to the lungs, through a tub and a mask. This keeps the airways open and as such it promotes a more restful, healthier night’s rest.
As the company has become an industry leader, and the preferred company for sleep therapy organisations, ResMed has a fantastic reputation for providing a range of excellent products, including the Bi-Level, the CPAP and APAP, and Home Ventilation machines.
Each of these machines have been carefully built according to the various industry standards and they are easily adjustable and able to meet the specific needs that clients might have. This makes it easier for us to help our patients to find the most suitable machine for their problem.
When choosing the best ResMed CPAP machine, the process starts with a visit to the sleep doctor. This consultation, and perhaps period of observation, will give you the insight needed to provide you with the prescription. From there, you can start looking for the appropriate machine, which can be done by talking to your doctor about their recommendations or by coming to us for assistance.
When the right machine has been selected, we can get your machine set up according to your doctor’s prescription and we can also help you get more comfortable with your machine.
ResMed South Africa currently supplies 4 types of sleep therapy machines.
The CPAP machine is one that provides fixed pressure, which allows for the delivery of consistent airflow pressure. These are the go-to sleep apnea treatment machines and the ResMed variety includes the AirSense 10 and AirSense 11.
The APAP machine is similar to the CPAP machine but it is auto-adjusting which allows it to change the air pressure throughout the night to accommodate changes in sleeping position and changes of the stage of sleep. ResMed offers APAP machines in its AirSense 10 and AirSense 11 catalogues.
The 2 air pressure machine, known as the Bi Level, is designed for those who have difficulty adjusting the airflow pressure. This device includes a higher pressure level for inhaling and a lower pressure for exhaling, and this helps to improve breathing comfort.
ResMed South Africa also supplies fantastic travel friendly CPAPs, which allows patients a comfortable night’s rest wherever they go.
Our ResMed machines are available to Pretoria based clients as well as those living in other areas of South Africa. For more information, or to discuss your specific needs, you can contact us today.
