Any feedback on Transcend II
Hi All

I'm looking to invest in a back up device and as I fly overnight (12hrs+) at least eight times a year, it seemed to be a good idea to get a more travel friendly Auto machine as my backup so I can use it on battery whilst up in the air.

The Transcend II with battery and, HME to stop dehydrating too much, seems to be a good option, but as I'm a relative Newbie it would be really helpful to get your thoughts.

If anyone has any experience of this machine or has any thoughts on the subject, please let us know.

Whoops, I just found a review on here, very comprehensive, so I need to apologize for asking a question that's already been answered, unless anyone has any further info?

Thanks
D

RE: Any feedback on Transcend II
My first thought is a backup machine is critical if your OSA is severe enough (like mine). And, never, ever check your CPAP as luggage (mine got lost once and I didn't sleep that night.

The only thought I can offer you, is some people have a hard time switching from one machine to another, and more than a few ended up getting a second machine that was the same as their primary - just food for thought.

If you do decide on the Transcend unit, I would recommend the P8 multi night battery. This is to insure you get your 12 hours of run time, battery run time varies a lot depending your breathing and pressure setting. The P8 battery would give me 15-16 hours. As mentioned, differences in machines may be an issue, but for me I had no problems adapting with my Transcend EZEX cpap, except for the noise level. The "breathing" noise level may be objectionable to some, I found a couple of ways to reduce it

When using CPAP during a flight, I think we are not supposed to use a humidifier.

This is because atmospheric turbulence causes some pretty wild bumping around sometimes, and water might get in the blower unit, which would tend to instantly destroy the blower unit.

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

Check the Review Forum. There's several Transcend models that have been reviewed.

RE: Any feedback on Transcend II
Hi
I plan on useing an HME device to take care of humidification.
Air on planes is very dry and and I wanted to see if I arrive feeling better than I normally do.
Flight is 12.5 hours and across 8 time zones and I have always put down the feeling like c#*p to jet lag.
Hopefully with reasonable sleep, moist 'ish' air I will arrive feeling much better and not spend three days recovering.

I'll keep you posted
