Have I Consulted With My Physician and Have CPAP Prescription?

After the initial sleep study to diagnose the condition, consult with your physician to get a recommendation to purchase the correct equipment and supplies for your needs. Each piece of CPAP equipment has different functionalities. It's important to understand the differences and similarities of the options available.
