Re: Which Brand CPAP you are using?

When will they be OTC at Harbor Freight?
They have a much more reasonable return policy than any local DME.
And way better prices than Sears ever had (except during closeouts).

Re: Sensors used by CPAP manufacturers

No doubt, additional sensors and multiple readings were taken in a lab
to establish reliability of the sensors and their placement used in production.

Re: Can CPAP cause tongue sores?

. . . I'm skeptical. Plus, won't it rot teeth? Honey is nearly liquid, so it washes down your throat and away from teeth fairly quickly. Especially clean teeth--brush, brush, brush--tooth scum is an irritant, and worse. Your worst decay risk comes from sticky caramel, hard candy, which dissolves sl...

Re: Can CPAP cause tongue sores?

Tongue/mouth sores may not have a clear-cut cause;
but the real question is how to relieve it.
I found that regular application of manuka honey helps.
No prescription, and tastes very nice.
Not cheap, but it is amazing stuff.

Wonderful!
Too bad OUR "representatives" are more obligated to those

Re: CPAP usage restrictions in Hospital

I credit medical personnel with having their stuff fully together. I am grateful for the level heads who plan ahead, and are READY for that which the rest of us would not expect. They do that--because it is their JOB. The least we can do is be cooperative and not make that job harder, or more danger...

Re: Poll for airmini bluetooth connection problem

Probably because the airmini is primarily intended for occasional, casual use,
not continuous operation, as you are using it now.
Don't you wish you had gotten an airsense?

I have been making headcovers for myself--digging into my fabric stash, and refeshing my relationship with my Husqvarna. Most of my hair is growing out-I really jumped the gun with the b...

Re: disable the modem F&P SleepStyle Auto

Electromagnetic fields and waves are impossible to avoid.
They are everywhere.
It might be wiser to learn more about them-
-then you would have less unreasonable fear.
This kind of fear is not a good thing at all
