Gross Back from the hospital
What a night for a snow storm. I did some grocery shopping. The snow was bad. The bus was re-routed. I got off the bus at what would be a makeshift transfer point. The connecting bus never showed. I was in the snow for - a long time until I made my way over to a nearby store and just collapsed on the floor. They sent for an ambulance and was taken to the hospital. Diagnosis: hypothermia. So I guess I was on my way to freezing to death. When I was released I crawled into a warm bed, turned on the heat on my CPAP and tried to get some sleep. 4 or 5 hours. It was already the middle of the night. It's almost noon. I got up not long ago. To those of you who have to face winter, be careful. It really makes me wish I had a car.

Geeze Ugly,

You really had a rough night!

Glad you're on the mend, just take it easy until next year so you can at least get your new S9 AutoSet.

I'm really looking forward to it. My RT called and left a message. My ClimateLine (heated) hose request has been processed and I can get it in the new year. She said that at that time she can adjust the pressure on my CPAP. Too late. But the doctor has prescribed an AutoSet finally so I'm hoping to trade in my "brick"

Sean,

Glad to hear you're okay. Be safe. Once you get your S9 AutoSet and have tried it out for several days, be sure and do a review HERE.

I've already been impressed by the S8 AutoSet II that I borrowed for three weeks in late fall. I never did figure out how to turn on the setting to start it when I put the mask on. It was listed but didn't give me any options. I'm not sure what I missed but I took close notes of the AI/HI/AHI which of course was impossible on the S9 Escape. I look forward to being able to plug it in to ResScan and see just where I'm going with all of this. But it's nice to have people listening to me.

Oh yeah. The option was given, an AutoCPAP or just increase the pressure. I said to him and to VitalAire that I wanted an AutoSet machine. And I emphasized, NO Philips models. To me, Philips should stick to making screwdrivers. The REMstar SE turned me off them for good.

Sean, sure you want to publicly post your prescription here? If you don't think it's a risk, fine... let me know if you want me to remove it though.

Glad you're getting a decent machine finally!
