Re: Cleaning the HumidX cartridge

Actually, ResMed say not to rinse the cartridges as water will ruin them. In order to work, the cartridges have to be filled with some type of humidifying gel, similar to what's used in cigar humidors or musical instrument storage. When you exhale, the cartridge absorbs some of the moisture from yo...

Re: Resvent ibreeze

Made in any other country, means U.S. Dollars are being sent to countries that are as best, our friends, at worst our enemies. That makes their economies strong and ours weak. It also makes us unable to handle our own needs to respond to our needs, because we no longer make the products in the U.S....

Re: CPAP Pressure Discrepancy

Obsessing over .1cm of XPAP pressure is like building a house using plans written in mm. The fools are the manufacturers. that make the machines adjustable by .1cm. I could see .5 cm as a setting, maybe but .1cm is useless, your body wouldn't notice the change. Air pressure all around us changes, ev...

Re: mandated doctor appointments for supplies?

As Pugsy said, "It depends on your insurance". And the Insurance companies are increasingly adding hoops and obstacles to avoid paying benefits. Sounds penny-wise and pound-foolish to pay for unneeded doctor visits while ultimately paying for supplies anyway. It's a wind fall for the medical indust...

Re: CPAP Pressure Discrepancy

What matters is results, not numbers, as long as its keeping your airway open and it's keeping it open you are good to go, that's probably one reason they don't want us controlling our own treatment. Not everyone knows what its about or how it works, worrying about things you can't change unnecessar...

Re: Resvent ibreeze

Resvent ibreeze, The name alone is a RED FLAG, first name starts with R knockoff for Resmed. Second name start with I, knockoff for I products. 24 four letters folks to chose from, try something original other than trying to climb on the backs of real products. Jim

Re: Home Water distiller - Vevor 4L model

I don't have or need one, but the specs are good and, if I needed one that would be the one i'd buy. I have been looking for a ultrasonic cleaner, but I don't have any room left in the house to park it, that brand is the one i'd buy. it would be a 4L so it peaked my interest, had to check it out. wo...

I use Lincare as my supplier, they still supply my O2 Pump and XPAP supplies, I haven't tested them on a new machine, mine are still going after 17 years, and I have two backups, I'm not going to rock the boat.

Re: Using D cells for that once-in-10-year emergency event

I see. So to get the charge you want, you have to adjust the current appropriately. How about a switching supply, that allows for 10s at 5A then then nothing for 23s? It'd be a honking big capacitor bank though, even if they are electrolytic. Oh well, I guess I know now why no one came up w/that id...
