Finding The Best Price on ResMed VPAP Adapt SV
Through the past few years there has been a significant increase in the diagnosis of Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) and the debatable Complex Sleep Apnea (CompSA). There are many different contributing factors to this increase, ranging from the increase in public awareness of sleep apnea to escalating use of pain killers (i.e. opioid induced) and congestive heart failure.
Central Sleep Apnea Treatment Options Through Therapy DevicesCurrently 2 FDA approved devices used to treat this unique form of sleep apnea, the Philips Respironics BiPAP AutoSV and the ResMed VPAP Adapt SV. Both manufacturers have proven research data showing successful use of these therapy devices and I have seen both devices in use with positive outcomes, however this therapy comes with a hefty price tag.
The average billable costs using your health insurance is typically around $8000.00 (take a deep breath from sticker shock). This typically prompts many users to look for less expensive alternatives (i.e. internet searches). Purchasing power through the internet will often times save the user money (about half) on their CPAP supplies but what they do not have is the availibility of an on-site respiratory therapist should the patient struggle. For this reason, some manufacturers do not permit the sale of certain respiratory devices online.
What Is The Best Way To Find/Buy These Devices OnlineStay away from auction sites (meaning person to person sales); most times you may be purchasing a device without warranty, non transferable warranty or expired warranty. Craigslist, EBAY, Amazon, and other sites are not the recommended to purchase CPAP and related supplies. For more information, feel free to call me at (800) 274-1366.
