Hi! Where would you be shipping, if still available?
I'll ship anywhere in the United States. You pay the shipping cost up front and I ship out in 2-3 days. Kinda like eBay.

UPDATE: Free stuff has been taken

What do you do with slightly used equipment? I'm referring to the two masks and corresponding headgear used on me in my latest sleep study. They are perfectly good - used probably less than 90 minutes each, just not good for me. It pains me to toss them in the trash if there's a good use for them. I...

Re: Update from BamaGramma

Okey dokey, I saw the PA today for the titration results. I'm including one of the charts from the info they discussed with me.The first couple CPAP levels were with the nasal mask but no chin strap. The next 2-3 were with full face masks. They actually made my apnea push to the severe stage. Then a...

Re: Update from BamaGramma

I had the titration study last night and will see the doctor in two weeks for results and a plan of action. But with regard to last night, they started me with the DreamWisp, which is what I've been using, but a S/M size rather than the L that the DME gave me. I did okay for a while but started mout...

Re: Update from BamaGramma

THAT, my friends, should qualify as medical malpractice as well as Medicare fraud. I'm curious, did the new clinic you go to take Medicaid? While I like that everyone gets access to healthcare with Medicaid, the unfortunate reality is that low reimbursement rates lead to the sorts of experiences yo...

Re: Update from BamaGramma

In view of your history of a restless legs diagnosis do tell your doctor in advance so that wiring and monitoring your legs can be a part of any upcoming studies, both without and with CPAP. They did wire my legs in the January 8th study and my legs were still as mice that night, which means the Mi...

Update from BamaGramma

I'm not sure at what point in my disastrous CPAP journey I last posted. Last September I went to the sleep clinic, complained again about my difficulty using the machine, and the nurse practitioner ordered a pulse oxygen test that could be done at home. When it hadn't been scheduled 2 weeks later, I...

Re: BamaGramma's Therapy Thread (Was Can someone explain all this and make suggestions?)

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I had the second Shingrix vaccination this week and hoo boy did it ever knock me off my feet! I ran a 101 fever for two days and had chills so bad I was dressed in sweat pants, t-shirt and fleece bed jacket and huddled under a sheet, light blanket and ligh...

Re: BamaGramma's Therapy Thread (Was Can someone explain all this and make suggestions?)

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I've been busy with getting ready for the rescue cat I've adopted. I'm still at 7.0 and I won't post my charts because two nights ago I woke up too early and just sat up in bed with the machine on, reading the news on my iPad to get over the 4 hour mark. A...

Re: BamaGramma's Therapy Thread (Was Can someone explain all this and make suggestions?)

From 7:30 on...were you awake or half awake? Yep. Kept thinking I might fall back asleep and when I didn't, I got up. I also slept for about an hour or so in my recliner before I put the mask on and went to bed. Didn't mean to but... well, you know how things just happen. Those charts mean nothing ...
