Is a prescription needed for a CPAP machine?


If you are to use a CPAP machine (BiLevel or Auto CPAP), you need to present a prescription from your physician. When diagnosing OSA, your doctor usually conducts a sleep study. A copy of the results of the sleep study would determine the right level of air pressure when using a CPAP device.

It is important to note, that a sleep study is not enough documentation to obtain a CPAP machine, you need a signed prescription from your doctor.
