I could never get used to wearing the mask, would end up ripping it off in the middle of the night. Ended up getting a UPPP done (https://www.verywellhealth.com/what-is- ... ty-1192060) and now I'm pretty much cured. Its only effective in certain circumstances. (80% chance it would work for me) You'll need to consult a specialist.
That's why one needs to trial test as many masks as possible during the trial period. Another tip is to wear your mask while one is awake to get comfortable with it and don't tighten the mask straps too much...as loose as possible while keeping the leaks to a minimum.

I rotate my several different masks...a few days to a week each time. Some are more claustrophobic than others. Others can cause pressure marks on the nose bridge. Strap marks on the cheek can be problematic too.

Can anyone recommend a place to get CPAP machine in Mississauga or nearby area as long as they have excellent customer service? This is the first time that I'm getting a machine. Thanks

Remember OHIP covers up to 75% of the first CPAP.

I have the Dreamstation and it works great. It's super quiet (I think due to the tube) and I never use the humidifier.
Just to add, OHIP will cover 75% every 5 years... Not just the first purchase.

I cannot give any higher recommendation than the "CPAP Clinic in Mississauga" on Dixie Road!

Their service could not have been any better. And their price was as cheap as you can get anywhere. Online the top of the line fully automatic sensing and adjusting "ResMed AirSense 10" machine was $800

Within 3 hours of my call, Gabriel delivered, set up and fitted my hospitalized, distressed mother with the machine! Mercifully, she finally got an extended sleep and relief from her extreme distress.

In my opinion, 75% of her distress was due to her extremely poor quality of sleep and resultant cumulative sleep deprivation. The results were immediate and directly attributable to the use of CPAP.

Even more, after the sale, Gabriel followed up with discussions with me on the sleep analysis data sent every morning by the machine. The data seemed to suggest that a BiPAP machine might help even more. So he lent her one to try out! Sure enough, it helped even more and she finally got her first sleep of over 4 hours in years. The next night it was 7 hours!

I went in to the store a couple times to see if there were even more optimal fitting masks for my mom. Rosa provided exemplary service, and again lent me a few to try. We finally found the Phillips mask was jsut the ticket and she loved it!

I just posted a 5 Star Google Review. The store has 40 reviews and their overall rating is 4.9.

I should note, that the in-store price is $200 more but in my case, they came right over to the Hospital and set it up, multiple follow-up visits etc. Well worth it for a first time CPAP user. If you are just replacing your current machine, then online might we worth it. But the extra $200 for all the service you get is well worth it. Even for cheap RFD'ers like myself!

I hope this is helpful and you get a good night sleep soon. Don't delay if you think you need help with sleeping. A good sleep is at the very core of our health and well being.

Agreed, consult a physician, that said, the procedure is not for everyone, in my case, CPAP machine is the only solution for me.
Currently happy customer with Koodo and Zoomer Wireless, any questions just pm me.

Question for all of you...

What is the process after 5+ years when you need/want to get a new machine?

I purchased a ResMed S9 back in 2010 from a provider here in Niagara, covered by OHIP and my group insurance, as I had gone through a sleep study. Long story short, the unit no longer boots up. It starts to power on, but just keeps rebooting.

Do I need to go through the entire process again to get a new machine and mask and have it be covered?

I think I might have sleep apnea and would like to get tested for it.
Anyone living in Quebec could guide me how to get started and I don't have insurance.

Much appreciated!

Keep in mind that many stores in Ontario will try to make you buy a Cpap "package" in order to get access to better units.
This is illegal.
Any CPAP store has to sell you ANY unit that you want for the maximum ADP price with you paying 25%
Do not buy a fancy package, because OHIP won't cover that, and you don't need it.

I had my original sleep study done sometime in '04 (??) but have been sleeping just fine at the setting provided.

Since my original CPAP retailer folded, and the subsequent place I went to was super-shady, I'm also in search of a new retailer in West GTA. I just hope to god I don't have to go through another sleep study...

I have had two different take home tests done separately by two different clinics. Got the same results: borderline sleep apnea - I always woke up before my airway closed off completely so never a time at night I stopped breathing. The good news is, I am not going to die in my sleep but the bad news is, I am always tired in the morning. The second place where I got tested didn't even talk to my doctor about my results and said I could just pick one of their machines. It didn't feel right so I walked out without even touching one. If Alberta had coverage like Ontario I might consider trying one but of course we don't and the machines are so damn expensive, and the thought of sleeping with a mask on is daunting.

Good price on the Resmed Swift FX mask. I got mine a few months ago from Amazon for a few bucks more.

Does this place also buy units? Not sure if I mentioned it before but I have an S9 in almost perfect condition (used only for 1 month) and have NO idea how to get rid of it for a good price.

CPAP just wasnt for me. I couldnt even get through the sleep test without freaking out and leaving early. Nowadays, just sleep on my stomach, although I drool a LOT more now.

What do you consider to be a "good price"? It's astonishing how much money people try to get for second-hand CPAP machines on Kijiji, considering the majority were originally purchased for next to nothing (if anything) out of pocket.

I'd take it off your hands for $150. That's the model I have, and it is broken and out of warranty.
