Ah, new gear jo

Ah, new gear jo
Got a new mask, pillows, hose, filters yesterday and got to use it all last night. I went to bed early (for me) just because of that. I sneezed a few times because of the "new" smell but got over it quickly*. Leak rate was dropped! Yay!

Anyone else get excited about new gear?

*yes, I did rinse everything off first. duh.

Maybe not so much as being excited, as making sure that my DME source sends me what I need. They are pretty good at letting me know I'm due supplies and to contact them to verify what will be sent. 

But yes, there is an element of excitement involved. Now that I'm 65 and on Medicare, I'm curious to see how much I get charged for what.

RE: Ah, new gear jo
I will be excited not only to get my shiny new device sometime in about a month or so, but to get to where I can order it. I'm guessing we're creatures of habit. Toss out the shiny and new and we're happy. Besides that, the shiny and new in this case helps us breathe while sleeping, which is a nice habit to form and encourage.

Coffee to your shiny and new

Why does my ResMed filter look so much like pillow stuffing? I feel I'm being ripped off.

DME is cutting corners again.  Filters from China.  Cost-control.   Bigwink

Not gonna dispute that. Errrr, I'll save my insurance blocking/pre-auth of my post invasive surgery pain killer rant for some oxysmoxycoffee stuff!

PS my apology Paula02 for the slight skew off-topic. Forward we go with shiny and new stuff.
