Many customers ask about the differences between various CPAP machines. It's usually very easy to rattle off several differences between CPAP machines manufactured by different companies, but differences among CPAP machines within model lines - such as the Respironics REMstar M Series model line of CPAP machines - are sometimes subtle. As a result of the numerous model line product offerings, customers (and sometimes even I) have a difficult time keeping things straight when it comes to CPAP machine features.

To help clarify some of the differences between the CPAP machines we currently sell, I've created the CPAP Machine Comparison Chart below. There are quite a few CPAP machines listed here - 23 to be exact - so you'll have to scroll to the right to see them all. I have not included bilevel CPAP machines in this comparison chart; I'll create a separate comparison chart for those.

I hope this CPAP machine comparison chart helps you to better understand the CPAP machines we sell. As always, feel free to call me if you have any questions about any of the CPAP machines we sell.
