I looked on the resmed website and they don't list a distributor in Thailand. But you've probably already done that. i'm still looking so keep in touch.

The only place I could find in Thailand is the sleep clinic at Bangkok Bumrungrad Hospital. The website didnt load so thats all the information I can get. Perhaps you could ask them where you can get a Spirit..Also. Give cpap.com a try. Even with fedEx shipping it would probably be cheaper than buying locally... Good luck..

Call Resmed World Headquarters in San Diego, Ca. at 1-800-424-0737 and ask them if they have a distributor in Thailand.

Please advise me if you found the Resmed dealer in Thailand. Also please advise if you know of a dental clinic that fits mandibular devices to help sleep apnea patients.
many thanks
Dennis

cpap.com has no borders and will probably get it to you more cheaply than you local dealer in any country.

I would agree but for one thing. cpap.com uses UPS & as with Fedex, these outfits do a door to door delivery service and the cost is extraordinary.

I have done equal comparisons between Fedex, UPS, USPS. Each was for a 12/13 lb parcel, each offered tracking.

Both Fedex want something like $US215 to ship a 12/13lb parcel to Australia. UPS want about $175.

USPS price is less than half the above 2, but USPS require the parcel to be taken to their locations.

cpap.com to their credit agreed to cap my UPS charge. I ordered a RemStar AUTO+HH+Activa+Mirage ff - the cap was UPS$128. but then when the goods arrived the local UPS office sent me an extra bill for another $60.

Fedex charged $215 for a similar package (no additional invoice).

USPS charged $85 for a similar package.

I believe the cost of delivery to Thailand will be similar.

I ordered an aura from cpap.com ($109) and was told it would cost $56 to deliever it to the uk!! I cancelled the order and got it from another US supplier also at $109 and was charged $22 USPS. The difference is speed I guess, as USPS took 8 days to arrive - but as I wasn't in any rush it was ok to take a little longer. However, to be charge over half the price again for delivery is, in my opinion, outrageous! And, cpap.com told me they would not offer any alternative shipping, it was $56 or nothing - that cost them the order and any future buisness from me!

Hello, please be aware:
If you plan to buy from the US (whether from cpapdotcom or any other) you will need to supply them a prescription for exactly the item that you want to order issued by a doctor who has the permission to prescribe medical supplies in the United States of America. I just happened to stumble over this clause, when I planned to bring my own personal ResMed stuff back home with me from a business trip to the US, especially since it is quite a bit cheaper there. But it won't work, even with a German prescription.
As to my understanding European dealers (such as in Germany or UK) are not obliged to ask for prescriptions, but many of them only ship within Europe.
Finally do make sure that Thai customs would not seize (=keep) your shipment unless you can prove that you have at least a prescription from a Thailand based doctor... This is often the case with German customs who do not permit shipments to private addresses from pharmacies in other European countries.
So the best thing is to buy your ResMed stuff personally abroad (Malaysia? Singapore?) or have someone bring it along from a trip...
Good luck! Wolf from Germany (sufficiently equipped with ResMed shops)
