Glad you say the Lofta price isn't bad. I'm considering buying the Resmed with mask this Friday when I get paid. Although the Lofta lady is telling me since they are limited stock I should buy 1 ASAP to get a cpap within days and not weeks... Ah well. I will wait till Friday. I'll check on those li...

Sorry I really am. I'm so overwhelmed and stressed. I don't know what to do about buying a cpap to even get treatment! Lofta is saying $960 for mask and airsense10 auto. That's a lot of money! What if the CPAP doesn't help my symptoms?! I wish my ENTs home study diagnosed me so I could go through i...

Re: Question re:Bi-level machine RX requirements and other things

Yea but would they do a BiPAP without a study? What would the script say? One BiPAP machine set to user defined levels? (Serious question, not sure how that would work) Other sources for CPAP Rx Who Can Write A CPAP Prescription? A variety of professionals can write a CPAP prescription including yo...

Re: Important: When they send a DreamStation2!

If you do get a replacement machine i suggest you wait a year or more to send the recalled one back. Be just as slow as Phillips is when it comes to our health. And that, as they say, is that. if only you could be more certain of your opinions! :lol: :lol: :lol: i'll play their silly games and take...

Re: Can artificial light damage mask?

Ok, thanks... weird that I had not noticed any degradation before, at least not to the point I wasn't able to breathe with it anymore. to add to what palerider said, a water flosser works very well for this. (tip of the hat to forum friend chunkyfrog) just be sure you use it in the shower as that p...
