Somnetics Transcend CPAP alternative
The Somnetics Transcend, a continuous positive airway pressure machine, is smaller and lighter than the traditional sleep apnea remedy CPAP machine, the company says. It is FDA approved and weighs about 1 pound. It doesn’t use a long hose, humidifier and power cord like a traditional CPAP, but instead offers a battery pack, short hose and a small, disposable hygienic heat moisture exchanger. The machine can also operate on DC power and allows for more mobility during sleep.
