[Equipment] Resmed machine vs Luna II
RE: Resmed machine vs Luna II
My wife and I both had the recalled Phillips machine.  No replacement, yet.  I have an AirSense 11 and love it.  My wife had the Luna or wait option and selected the Luna II.  Some nights it has had a loud buzzing sound (not related to rainout), but it's not consistent.  If it continues, we will end up returning it.  Also, it is larger and heavier.  She had rainout with the humidity setting on 3.  As for the features, they are pretty consistent with the Resmed, but not having OSCAR import available is a bummer.  I'll post more, if we learn what causes the noise, and how to remedy it.  Good luck.

RE: Resmed machine vs Luna II
After using a CPAP for 18+ years under the benign neglect* of my PCP, I had to get a new sleep test so that Medicare would cover new supplies. I've been very happy with a Resmed S9. But it's no longer under warranty, so the new sleep Dr. and I worked out that I'd get another Resmed--I was expecting a Airsense 10. At the appointment, they put a Luna II on the desk. I was confused; I'd never heard of the brand, so I told them I didn't know anything about the brand, and that I couldn't take it until I'd done research on the machine. I asked if it had remote access and was told that the manufacturer hadn't upgraded it yet.

They told me this model was all that was available since the recall had created demand across all brands. I told them that Dr. [name] had promised me I'd be getting a Resmed. They said they didn't know who Dr.[name] was. Lol, his office is 2 doors down in the same practice space, using the same waiting room and receptionist. I asked when I could get a Resmed. July, maybe. I said that I was happy to continue using my S9 until July, and he called up the chain and said there was a Resmed "in the safe" that he could give me. To my surprise, it was a spanking new Airsense 11.

I've never been so happy to be a squeaky wheel. The Luna II is very heavy (but sturdy!), and I travel a lot.

*Benign neglect= asking me once a year if I'm using it at least 4 hours a night, and prescribing supplies. Smile

Many years ago, I made a "sock" of sorts out of a cheap, like microfiber, blanket cut and sewn, then slide your tubing down through and rainout is gone. Who needs heated tubing when you have insulation?
