    Night two..
    Slept very good, turned my heat setting from 5 to 3, and damn if it didn't get worse. Actually woke up sometime this am with condensation inside the mask, running down my face and onto my shoulder. Yuck. I will try 1 on the heat tonight. My old POS machine, if I didn't have the heat set up high, I would wake up with dry cracked lips, this machine seems 1000 times better.
    The wife was like "oh great", because my last machine was so loud, I asked het last night, she said she doesn't even hear the new one. Not that it would bother her, that dang woman can be asleep before her head hits the pillow.
    Yes, I am already trying to figure out how to run it when camping, or grid down.
    Order all the supplies they allow, and stockpile them..

    I battled the condensation build up for a few weeks when the weather was cold. I keep my heat set at 70 and moisture at 2 or 3 depending on room temp. Rare I get build up anymore.

    The make portable ones that run on battery if you purchase out right they are not to expensive. Warning you need a prescription and the doctors don't want to hand it to you. They want in on the sale, you have a right to it and to purchase any where you wish.

    A couple of thing here: 1. Mentioned here, an EMP situation, If you can find a CPAP brand name "Niagara" (Not Made Anymore) it runs on rechargeable batteries. And I bought a solar charger to use with it. 2. If you get "Rain Out" in the mask or the tube, room temp is to low and condensation is building up. To stop this in the tube have someone sew a "Cozy" for it. That is a tube of cloth that covers the whole CPAP tube. My temperature on mine is set at zero, I can get by on passive humidification. In fact I have been known to put distilled water ice cubes in my tank in the summer. Rain out is very common in the winter. I heard a lot that they couldn't use their CPAP when they had a plugged up nose. BS , get some Pure Eucalyptus oil, put a few drops in the tub. Just like a aroma therapy "Vaporizer".
    The newer CPAP's are real quiet. I always preferred the Resmed brand but to each his own.

    That is right. If they try to tell you where to purchase, tell them the government considers that solicitation which is illegal. By phrasing it that way, they think you talked to someone "In The Know" The small battery ones are great, unless you are on an "Auto Titrate" which means it changes pressure as your needs change. I don't think they have developed one for auto yet. When they do I will grab one.

    If you have the Resmed Airsense (S10) I don't think they have batteries yet. So an invertor from Radio Shak might be the ticket. And you definitely do not need an RX. A good fullface mask is Resmed Mirage Quattro. There are several Quattros, but I personally like the Mirage version the best. The ONLY items you need an RX for are; CPAP, Mask, cushion, filters, headgear and tube. I never figured why you needed RX's for most of those items. Medicare will "Shop" you to make sure the DME are getting RX's also.
    Some states like Orygun will check with the patients doctor for compliance of CPAP use. If not compliant, they pull the individuals drivers license.

    The Mirage has worked best for me.
