Board Newbie, 13+ years on CPAP - Hello folks!!
Greetings! Just saying hello. I've never participated in an OSA forum. I lurked here abit lately looking for some hints for a new machine, and liked what I saw. Hope I can be of some help to someone. I posted a "CPAP Success Story" in that thread, and if you're inclined, you can find out a bit more about my experience there.
I believe CPAP saved my life. I know it can make a difference for y'all, too.
thx

Hi Blue, welcome to our humble little site.

I read your "success" story. It was great.

As to what to do about power failures?

There's always automatic powered backup generators if you can do that.

But the biggest thing is to handle the little "few seconds" power hits that screw up our computers, tv's, and our cpap stuff. A simple computer ups can keep those from being a nuisance.

We have a gas operated generator wired into the house circuits. So if the power goes out in the dead of winter in the middle of the night all I have to do is hop on out to the garage area and fire it up. Yeah, like that's going to happen............
