Where are the best places to purchase an ASV machine?

My mother was diagnosed with sleep apnea. She went through four sleep study evaluations at various places. She was prescribed an ASV machine. Where can we purchase an ASV machine? We do not have a lot of money, but want to make sure we get her a quality machine.

You can always shop on the internet. Your sleep physician can provide you with the detailed specific prescription so that her machine can be ordered and sent directly to her. The drawback is that there is not a local company or therapist to take care of her and help with mask fitting.

ASV machines can be covered by medical insurance if it is medically necessary. We can point run your insurance and see what is covered on your health plan.

ASV machines are available on the internet through websites such as www.cpapman.com. You will need a physician order. Local medical equipment companies often match internet prices, but paying a little extra is usually money well spent as you get expert advice and personal attention.
