I don't even need one of these. Maybe I'll just get 2. :P. Anyway, upvote for the post. Surely it'll help someone!

A CPAP machine does help with sleep apnea (snoring). I highly recommend having your dad talk with his doctor and finding a sleep doctor which can help you more.

Snoring IS NOT sleep apnea.

Possible symptom especially if one has the other symptoms like high blood pressure, etc. Recommend checking with one health care provider and see if an in-home sleep test is needed.

Undiagnosed sleep apnea can cause cardiac and other severe health issues.

Agreed, snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea, but the primary cause for concern is stopping breathing (or breathing very shallowly). A CPAP machine will probably reduce snoring because it forces the mouth closed, but if snoring is the only sleep problem, there are probably better solutions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_apnea

+1. even if it is apnea, not all types of apnea can be resolved with a cpap/apap. central sleep apnea for example must use an ASV because your brain isn't sending the signal to your body to breathe rather than obstructive like most cases.

so see a doctor first before you waste any money.

i've tried both and hands down airsense 10 is better and more compact than the dreamstation.

Resmed has a more proactive treatment algorithm than Philips Respironics. Some are treated better with Resmed; others with Philips Respironics. Philips Respironics are often cheaper (important if self pay) since Resmed has recently introduced minimum floor pricing.

Actually a CPAP does not force the mouth closed. Often people who are mouth breathers or can't keep their mouth closed while sleeping need to wear a chin strap or a full face mask CPAP

Soft cervical collar with a nasal mask worked better for me (vs chin strap). FFM made it worst (higher AHI and higher pressures) for me after trying 2 different FFM masks (Dreamwear and Simplus). Others reported good success with mouth taping or a product like Somnifix.

I would be very careful relying on this. Could be a knock off of the Philips dream station (which is an apap which is a cpap that adjusts to your breathing ) which sells at sleep apnea clinics for around $2500/$3000. There’s a bunch of fakes on Amazon

The clinic told me they don’t even believe these things work. Obvious bias there but this is a medical device.

Most private insurance covers most of the cost snd thr provicne May subsidize it depending on the province.

If you think you have sleep apnea get tested and don’t trust this stuff

I've been on the Resmed for almost three years now and wouldn't mind having a second one as a just in case spare.

My AHI has been less than one for the last year.

Only product I've found that actually works is Smart Nora. They're kinda expensive (though often have coupons/sales), but I tried it because they're a Canadian company and have 30 day money back guarantee. And yeah, can definitely say it works WAY better than anything else.

I know that with the Public Service Health Care Plan (Sun Life) you use the app on your mobile to take a picture of the receipt and submit it online.

Ask him to ask his Dr. to refer him for a sleep study - then if needed buy. The sleep study will detail - so the cpap can be set for his specifications.
