Need to buy Trilogy100 -

Post by Kristine1967 » Wed Mar 22, 2017 9:39 am

Looking to buy (maybe) Trilogy100 for the hubby. Attention grayghost4 if you're out there I hear you are a good resource...

He developed respiratory need after C1- C3 laminectomy and suboccipital crainectomy. This may be temporary we hope, or could now be a permanent thing. Pulmonolgist wants to send him home w/the Trilogy since what he is using currently is the hospital version of this home machine.

Thoughts, ideas, comments welcome. ** We are cash pay ** no insurance involved (we use a health share ministry). We have several companies that have rejected us outright to rent machine as we have no insurance - our cash isn't good enough for them (Lincare!!)!

Thanks,
Kristine

That's going to be a difficult machine to find. Very special and of course very high dollar.

You might call up Mark at secondwindcpap.com
http://www.secondwindcpap.com/Used_CPAP.html
and see if he has any ideas where you could find a Trilogy. Be sure and ask for Mark. I don't think they have one in inventory but you never know plus he does some work with a donated machine organization that might be able to help you find that very special and high dollar machine.
I may have to RISE but I refuse to SHINE.

In my area, you are not allowed to BUY a Trilogy. Trust me, I've tried. I have to rent mine and have been doing so since 2010. Blech.

Grayghost -- if you're able to get a hold of any, let me know. Price is a serious issue but if you get some, I'd love the chance to at least say I can't afford it!!

Oh, and this is important...

Please give OP first crack at any you might get. I have one so their need is greater than mine for sure!

I was surprised to see they aren't *that* much more than an ASV - so which one is really priced too high?

New ASV @$4500, new Trilogy $5800
Phillips 960 AutoSV Paving Brick, Phillips Dreamwear Mask - Nothing is working.
Diagnosis of crappy sleep, desats under 80, maybe UARS

Up until a few minutes ago the cheapest Trilogy I ever saw priced online was over $15k.
Rental monthly was usually in the thousands.

As a current patient, I can attest to the cost of these things. I was told that patients are not allowed (bad word but the one I was given) to purchase the Trilogy. It was (still is for me) a perpetual rental. For many years, my DME charged $1500 a month rental and Medicare paid 1495 of it. That rental has been reduced in half in the last few years, but it's still outrageous.
