Former CPAP user describes how much she enjoys tap appliance compared to CPAP. It was an easy problem free transition. 


Brad: My name is Brad. I had a CPAP that I used for several years. I had a friend of mine that recommended the TAP device. I changed over to the TAP device and I couldn’t be happier. I don’t have to drag the CPAP while traveling. It’s been a great device. I sleep very well and it’s very easy to maintain, and I’m very glad I made the choice to change.

Dr. Shapira: Great. Any problems you had along the way?

Brad: Not at all. Not with the TAP device. CPAP, it’s been a challenge traveling. I travel across to other countries several times and it’s just a hassle to bring with.

Dr. Shapira:Great.

Brad: This device is very easy to take anywhere.

Dr. Shapira: Anything else you want to add?

Brad: No, just glad I ran across it.

Dr. Shapira: Perfect, thank you.

Brad: Thank you.
