Are our mask prices the lowest online?

Posted Sep 19, 2013 by Kristen P. in CPAP Products
Above we mention our Price Guarantee, but recently we've had questions from our customers about whether or not some of our online competitors are selling masks for cheaper than our listed (often MAP- or MIRP-determined) prices. We did some investigating, and what we found was that some of our online competitors are often selling popular CPAP masks without headgear at a cheaper listed price than our full mask & headgear packages. Often times, these product listings do not state that the headgear is not included, so customers may not even know exactly what they are purchasing until they receive it at home. We find this practice bad for the customers. As a company that's been selling online for almost ten years, we know that it's difficult enough for CPAP users to navigate buying their much-needed equipment online. We want to make the experience as straight-forward as possible, so we give you all the information you need (plus, our Price Guarantee!) up front. As authorized dealers of ... [More]

Posted Sep 12, 2013 by Kristen P. in Lifestyle
Doctors are just starting to understand how certain individuals can be greatly affected by gluten, the main protein in wheat products. Cases of celiac disease and gluten intolerance are rising every year and symptoms and complications are vast and varied, affecting almost every part of the human body. Recent research is showing a link between sleep disorders (or just poor sleep) and gluten sensitivity. Because it is a relatively new diagnosis with very wide ranging symptoms and complications, celiac disease (or it's milder cousin, gluten intolerance) can go undiagnosed for years. Individuals with either of these disorders may have no idea where their symptoms and health problems are coming from. But as the body of research is beginning to grow, doctors and scientists are finding that your morning bowl of cereal (or your sandwich at lunch, or your dinner roll - let's face it, wheat is a huge part of the American diet) may not be as safe a food choice as it seems. Celiac disease is an im... [More]

Refreshing Your CPAP Mask

Posted Aug 8, 2013 by Kristen P. in Tips & Tricks
Sometimes it's just not practical or affordable to replace your entire CPAP mask. Many CPAP users don't realize that different parts of their mask can often be replaced to "refresh" it for longer use. CPAP masks, especially newer designs, often have just a few major components that need to be updated to make your mask like new again. And while we do believe that replacing your mask regularly is a key component of good sleep therapy, but we also want to be sensitive to the needs, budgetary and otherwise, of our customers.So, we've compiled a list of part of your mask that can often be replaced for general upkeep and maintenance. While every mask is different and has different replacement components, in general each mask has two types of replacement parts that are key in keep the mask fitting and working well: Mask Cushion or Pillow - This mask component is probably the most sensitive and important component of your mask. Most cushions are made of delicate silicone that is gentle on the... [More]
