[CPAP] [mb635] - AirSense 10 Autoset to Aircurve 10 ASV
#81
RE: [mb635] - AirSense 10 Autoset to Aircurve 10 ASV
Alright everyone I have an update:

I have had two sessions with my pulmonoglist since the last time I have posted here. So my pulmonoglist requested that I try my older CPAP machine for 10 days. As per what I have discussed with all of you in the past, I have yet to be successful with the regular CPAP machine. Upon my specific request I have requested the ASV prescription. The machine is runs for about $3000+ new. In addition to this, he desired me to purchase a SnoreRx mouth guard and try the CPAP machine again, while also sleeping in an elevated position. I am awaiting for the mouth guard to come in the mail. 

In the meantime, I need some advice as to what I should do about getting another ASV. I am in need of assistance of finding one that is affordable, as I am coming up short. I have checked DotMed and I can't seem to find one. The only one that I can find is about 1,100 and apparently it's the only listing. I know that's kind of a beg. But I would appreciate any help in that regard.

Additionally, I am wondering about if you all had some advice about sleeping elevated. I have tried repeatedly, and I just can't seem to do it on a regular schedule. My new plan is the following: get so exhausted to the point where my body is forced to just sleep on the elevated position. Meaning: I won't fall asleep until I can get used to the elevated cushion I have set up with the two pillows.

The Resmed Aircurve 10 ASV New in box is $2149 at Supplier #2. They have always provided very low-hour used machines with a warranty, and been very good backing up that up. The lightly used ASV is $1595. If you call, they will quote you exactly how many run hours it has.

I use a search engine called SearchTempest that looks through all Craigslist listing in a range I can specify. I use the search terms Resmed ASV. I found an ASV listed in Perrysville, Ohio on the Mansfield, OH Craigslist for $300. Another Resmed Aircurve 10 ASV is listed in the Boston Craigslist for $175. Another one with 1575 hours in Littleton, CO for $900. A listing in Mesa, AZ for $1000 has only 17.5 hours.

I have no problems using Craigslist for these machines as long as the seller provides an image of the clinical menu screen showing the run hours, and I talk with them directly. You need to come to terms for payment and shipping. I usually use PayPal which has some protection for both buyers and sellers. Unlike vehicles, the CPAP machines are just an unlikely source of scams.
