The CPAP machine helps patients breathe easier by increasing the air pressure in the throat, which prevents the airway from collapsing. It can also benefit those who snore while sleeping. In the United States, a prescription from a doctor is required to purchase a CPAP machine. At Texas ENT Specialists, our providers can administer these prescriptions, help select the proper device, and monitor your CPAP use. 

CPAP Prescriptions 

While it may initially seem like a hassle to get a prescription for a CPAP machine, it is an excellent service for patients. Understanding what type of machine to purchase and the settings you require will help ensure a successful outcome and proper long-term use. When you visit Texas ENT Specialists for your CPAP consultation, our providers will do the following: 

  • Review your sleep apnea diagnosis, and help you understand which category you fall into. 
  • Help you select the proper CPAP machine for your unique needs.
  • Explain the mask options available to you, and help you select one.
  • Walk you through the settings of the machine, including helping select the correct pressure settings. 

By going through these steps with a trained provider, you’ll achieve a better understanding of your CPAP machine, which will lead to the best possible use and outcome. The prescription also helps patients receive reimbursement or assistance through their health insurance provider.

Benefits of CPAP Prescription & Monitoring

The most significant benefit of a CPAP machine is better sleep for both you and your partner. You’ll be able to breathe easier while asleep and reduce snoring. It is an effective and non-surgical treatment for sleep apnea, and can also help those with heart disease to lower their blood pressure and reduce heart problems.

Who Is a Candidate for a CPAP Machine?
