Except for the traffic accident, obtaining my shiny new ResMed AirSense 10 Elite CPAP was pretty painless. And cheaper than the previous machine. Excellent service from Medigas.

I got the weird feeling the sales person had a customer whose cats turn the CPAP off.

Same model I have! I recommend the heated tube, as rainouts remain unpleasant.

Also the same model I have! With the heated tube.

(I had a big jug of distilled water at FOGcon; had I known I would have offered you some for your humidifier tank, since I can't exactly carry it back on the plane.)

Ah, fun with travel! I thought I recognized that grey bag...

Is the thing on the right the humidifier reservoir?

From: [identity profile] james-nicoll.livejournal.com
Yes. A vast improvement over the previous design, where the removable reservoir could not be opened for cleaning.

My CPAP has WiFi! And is certainly not also functioning as a CSIS monitoring device.

Don't be silly. She said microwaves, not CPAP machines.

There's a joke in there somewhere about "what do you get when you cross a CPAP machine and a microwave oven?", struggling to get out, but I can't figure out a decent punchline.


And that really bugs me.

That's... kind of horrifying.

That looks like mine

No complaints in over two years of use. I especially like the temperature and humidity options.

your encounter with the hellscape that is socialised medical insurance once again failed to force you to appear in front of a death panel. It's almost as if socialized insurance did not inevitably lead to a hellscape. Crimethink!

I got the weird feeling the sales person had a customer whose cats turn the CPAP off.

And you deduced this by the continual insistence that cats cannot, in fact, turn this particular machine off?

I have an older model ResMed Elite (can't remember the number) that my doc strongly suggested; it's been going for 4 years now and I'm quite satisfied. (No Wi-Fi, but I'm okay with my sleep being surveilled the old fashioned way by turning in the SD card, like Nature intended.) Looks like they've come down in price since I got mine, too.

-- Steve thinks you'll be happy with it if you can adequately cat-proof the hose, but you've done that before. :)

Same model I have. You ought to be able to register your device at ResMed's web site and look at your data—it measures how many hours you use the mask, how tight the mask seal is, how often you take the mask off, and how many sleep apnea events you have during the night.

There's free software to read your machine and help you find what it says. The one I use is called "SleepyHead".

My cat has a tendency to turn mine on when I'm no longer wearing it...
