As with CPAP masks, there are also a variety of CPAP machines available for CPAP users, including CPAP, Auto Adjusting CPAP (APAP) and BiPAP/BiLevel CPAP machines. CPAPs are the most common types of machines and blow a single pressure airstream. APAPs blow a variable pressure stream dependent on the minimal pressure needed to keep user's airways open. Lastly, BiPAPs blow two separate pressure streams, one at inhalation and one at exhalation.

You and your doctor can use this data to make changes in your setup, like changing your mask, or increasing or decreasing your pressure to see if your therapy performance improves and ensure you are getting effective treatment.
