Bus Tour of Europe
#1
I am taking a 28 day, 12 country bus tour of Europe in the spring. I have a Resmed S9 Autoset with an i5 heated humidifier. I am looking for any pointers I can get for this trip. I have a power adapter for Europe. We are staying in 4* hotels so I assume plug-ins should be available. Any pointers you can give me would be appreciated. Things like using distilled water in the humidifier or needing extension cords come to mind. This is my first trip to Europe.[/size][/font]

Adapter, distilled H2O, extension cord -- sounds like you have it covered.
No need to tell you to not move it with any water in the chamber.

The UK uses a different adapter than continental Europe. 2 round prongs for 240V 50 cycle on the continent.
3 prong in the UK. Most UK outlets are required to have an on/off switch -- so, be sure to turn on the outlet.

Money and lots of it, and watch out for pickpockets in some places
Bon Voyage

Make a list of all items you need to pack so you don't forget to pack them. Spare filters, hose, mask, cushion, etc, and a copy of your prescription, in case if you have to buy something in a hurry, things can get lost, damaged or stolen

Suggestion: surge protector instead of a plain extension cord/power strip. Power can fluctuate and lighting can strike anywhere, regardless of locale.

Happy Travels!

Thanks for the ideas people. Someone on another post mentioned a power brick. Is that what we would call a power bar or surge protector?

No, power brick is the power supply
