The process of obtaining a CPAP or Bi-level unit and any related medical equipment once you have a prescription requires a few steps. Your prescription will specify the type of therapy needed (for example CPAP versus BiLevel) and your therapeutic pressure. In addition, the physicians should have indicated certain accessories, such as specific mask types, chin strap, or humidifiers, which are essential to the proper delivery of positive airway pressure.
