CPAP machines of the future

Isn't this the case for the Philips Respironics DreamStation? Pretty sure my model is since I also bought the male cigarette lighter adapter for just the car, plus the female cigarette adapter wired to car battery clamps. The only thing I believe that might be preferable is a deep cycle marine battery. I haven't had to use that stuff ever yet, since power is pretty stable where I live.

Last evening/night I wrote to finnish cpap users forum in FaceBook a multi choice question about new features. Here is answer after ½ day as an attached file.

No. In Finland ResMed AutoSense 10 AutoSet is the most used cpap machine. They want 12 volt power supply connection to that machine.

Yes, I understand the ResMed AutoSense 10 AutoSet is a popular machine in many places around the world and in North America too; however, if a 12 volt non-proprietary power source is important to you, the Philips Respironics DreamStation, which is also quite popular, already has that feature now.

Maybe someday the ResMed will too, but I wouldn't hold my breath (pun untended Smile).

Resmed machines run on 24 volts but have some accessories to assist off-grid operation/

The biggest thing I want is smaller. Although that noise, air pump, ... dictate all of those things.

Knowing the way that most industry is going, I definitely suspect that SD Card and user configurability is going to be a thing of the past. Most companies assume some form of data connection is available wherever (they've obviously never visited Australia). When they go this road, their big data environments will soak up the data and very very occasionally a health professional may look at it.

Maybe some form of mouldable mask, similar to mouth guards.
Something more lightweight and less obtrusive, less noisy and that seals 100% even when I'm doing somersaults in my sleep.
The mask has a huge effect of efficacy and patient comfort, and requires the biggest improvements IMO.

To me, the machine essentially just blows air. Modern machines do that very well and reliably.
They could do better at separating sleep and wake events, and they could be more accurate in event detection. It also seems like ASV should be the standard operating mode, I don't believe that the machine hardware is (or should be) much different. The different price points are just BS.
All, still using SD cards is just BS too. There should be just two machines available - one designed for users who can manage their own treatment (wifi enabled etc.), and one that the patient is relying on doctor support. Doing this means the patients that need support can get better levels of it, and the rest of us don't need to bother with the doctor side of it.

Make a 3d scan of your face -> 100% seal mask. You can have it today, have your face scan somewhere and then hire a 3d cad engineer, not as expensive a you might think.
