Because We Care , Respirico request you to try before you buy!
We understand that everyone is unique and the first equipment and pressure combination you try may not be the right one for you! During your CPAP trial you are given the opportunity to try different masks, machines and pressure to find your best fit. We also realise that although CPAP treatment works for majority of our patients that it isn’t right for everyone. Its a lot of money to spend so why not spend a few weeks getting it right?
Respirico CPAP Trial
Respirico offer a 5 week CPAP trial period.
The initial appointment take roughly one hour allowing us to discuss sleep apnea and CPAP treatment, mask selection, operating instructions and cleaning and maintenance of equipment.
Each week we request you return for a half hour appointment allowing us to review your progress, send your results to the Dr and make any necessary changes to improve your therapy.
During the trial you may try different demo masks and machines. We keep all three major CPAP brands in all the latest styles.
