What type of power supply does my CPAP need?
Most CPAP/APAP machines are designed to operate on both AC and DC voltage 100-240 Volts, meaning you only require a power adapter to use the device and plug into your country’s socket.
I don't know the pressure I need... which machine should I buy?
When unsure of treatment pressure AUTO is recommended.
If you know the pressure required a Fixed Pressure machine may be an option.
Note: If unsure Auto is highly recommended as the most comfortable, robust and effective treatment option.
What is the difference between Fixed Pressure & Auto CPAP?
Fixed Pressure means the machine will run at one single pressure at all times and usually you need to know your presssure level to set the machine.
Auto will manage the pressure level within a range and is the most comfortable treatment available since the pressure will change during sleep as required.
Over 70% of patients select an AUTO type machine

What is the difference between CPAP machine brands & models?
We only carry the most reputable CPAP brands available such as ResMed, Philips Respironics & Fisher & Paykel.
All machines operate by supplying Positive Airway Pressure to the airways and variances may be small between brands and models.
If you have trialed a certain machine, it is recommended to purchase that model if you are comfortable with it.
How can I contact you for more information?
Please use the Contact page on our website or the Live-Chat feature on the bottom right of your screen to get in touch with us.
Do I need a prescription to purchase a CPAP machine?
We do not require a prescription for international customers. If you do not have a prescription or are unsure of your pressure an Auto type machine is recommended which will determine pressure levels on it’s own.
If you do know your fixed pressure you can purchase a Fixed/Single Pressure machine rather than an Auto, however Auto is recommended because it adjusts pressure as needed rather than supplying a single pressure that may need adjustment over time.
Furthermore over 90% of new patients experience more comfortable treatment whilst using an Auto instead of a Fixed Pressure CPAP machine.
*As we send orders from the USA the responsibility of a prescription or correct set pressure is upon the customer, CPAP Specials is not responsible for incorrect use of devices*
