AirMini and O2
#1
AirMini and O2
I am one of those who have had NO luck getting my DreamStation GO replaced and suspect (1) there is no intention by Phillips to do so and (2) am tired of the lack of courtesy or knowledge when speaking with their representatives. As a result, I am the proud new owner of a ResMed Airmini. I live at... and travel to.... high altitude (>7,000'). ResMed says that O2 cannot be bled into the machine. It strikes me (no pun intended) that an O2 connector just below the face mask (as with other CPAPs) would work. Does anyone have any knowledge of why O2 is prohibited with the Airmini or have a creative workaround?  Thanks

RE: AirMini and O2
1. Oxygen may build up in device and could result in a fire.
2.In the 'respironics' age (before merger), they use a check valve to prevent oxygen backflow. Just talking about history, I do not recommend this.
