Happy to hear you've gotten some more pieces of the "cpap treatment" puzzle comfortably into place, Steve.
It's things like that (that most DMEs wouldn't even know to suggest) that can make the difference between
being able to actually sleep with "CPAP" or eventually give up in mask-tugging-leaking frustration.
I took the liberty of saving the picture from the eBay site you mentioned:
Similar principle as the swivel arm plant hanger I bought (Lowe's? Wal-Mart? can't remember where)
and attached permanently to the wall above the head of my bed:
When I want to cover the stuff up, I put a pillow against the wall:
My mask in those pictures is a "deconstructed" (all the headgear removed) Twilight NP
That's a mask that was formerly called the "Aura" or "Headrest". And yeah, those red straps are
cut-off legs from a pair of pantyhose tights. Nice, soft, stretchy straps.
The white pillow in the picture is a PAPillow. The main air hose is an Aussie heated hose
(heated cpap tube) from sleepzone.com.au
These things are what I've been using for a long time. The heated hose for almost three years,
the deconstructed "Aura" for about two years, the swivel-arm plant hanger for two years,
and the PAPillow for over a year.
Oh...almost forgot. There is
a machine, too. LOL!!
Now you see it:
Now you don't:
The funnel to the left of the machine is for adding more distilled water easily without
removing the humidifier water chamber. There's a little PVC elbow connecting the main air hose to the
top of the humidifier water chamber. It's much easier to simply lift the elbow off than to wrestle
with getting a rubber hose cuff off. Saves wear and tear on the cuff.
