What medical equipment does SMS offer?
The typical CPAP equipment setup includes a main machine and several accessories. Some of them are permanent, while others wear out and are replaced regularly.
PAP machine: This could be a CPAP, BiPAP, AutoPAP, or ASV device. Most of them are equipped with built-in humidification, digital compliance chips, and CPAP filters.
PAP filters: Additional disposable filters are also needed, as PAP setups use a 2-filter system.
CPAP tubing: This is the coiled hose used to deliver the pressurized air from the machine to the mask.
CPAP mask: This could be a nasal pillow, nasal mask, or oronasal (full face) mask.
Headgear: This is how the mask is secured for use.
Chin support: This is used to prevent mouth breathing, to ensure that PAP therapy is effective.
We also have cleaning and sanitizing supplies and comfort items for improving your therapy experience.
