Yes, I used a bipap for about a year prior to my transplant, and though it was hard to get used to, once I got used to it, I loved it!!! I don't really have knowledge of a lot of different machines, they are all pretty much the same, I think. I used a huge one at the hospital and a tiny one at home, and really the only thing that matters is the mask, that you get a size that fits well and that you adjust it til it is tight enough to make a seal but comfortable and not pulling at your neck.  If you doctor recommends one, I would go ahead and do it right away. You will sleep much better and the rest will be good for your body!!!
