CPAP Supply

Surferdude2,

My DME takes the attitude that if you need one part after 3 months, you need them all. I get a new tank every 6 months as well as a bag of foam filters. The part I notice that goes the fastest is the webbing on the mask. It starts to show obvious wear and stretching after about 8 weeks. My prior DME (now long out of business) never sent me any replacement parts. I do clean everything on a regular basis as well as daily wipe outs of the mask. With my DME no longer stocking the 10 foot tubing, I may need to rethink my setup in regard to the hose buddy. If the 6 foot won't work, I can buy 10s from several of the suppliers on the list.

On the other side of the coin, my brother went 10 years before he heard a single word from his DME about any possibility of getting free updated or replacement items. Go figure.

Never heard peep 1 from Crapria, even after calling for a new mask and tubing. Seems they didn't have me in their system?

14 years on a ResMed Plus LX HC100 humidifier and 'breeze' headgear/nasal pillows.
Nor did my PCP ever question my CPAP titration of 14 years ago..

I had to ASK for a new sleep study (granted!! no issue). Sleep center had my records.. (wow).. New machine, mask.. APAP.. why bother titrating in the lab when it's not typical of home anyway...

Go Figure...
I'll take the new mask, tubing and H2O chamber as often as they offer until I have all new backups in sealed package plus an extra set to rotate for cleaning Wink
