[Equipment] Resmed s9 motor has exceeded life
#1
Resmed s9 motor has exceeded life
I have a resmed s9 that I have been using for over 10 years.  I have not seen a Dr since before I received the machine.  I walked out of the last sleep session because I could not get anyones attention to come in and let me try a different mask.  A month later I got a call from an equipment provider that CPAP was ready.  It was 0 cost to me so i got it and used it about 7 months before it was stolen (in a suitcase).  The RX was still good so I bought a new machine on Ebay for 1/3 the cost of the first one.  Drs and techs really markup the prices.  I set it up using guides on the Internet including this board.  No problems for 10+ years.  My AHI ranges from .5 to 3.9.  Now the S9 displays a screen the says the motor has exceeded it life.  Still works but I am heeding the warning.

So I am trying to find out how hard it is to get a new RX from a new Dr without doing a sleep session.  All of the "Drs" that come up when I search my medical insurance web site are actually sleep centers with no named Dr.  I guess I dont mind having a Dr look at the memory card from my machine but I dont want to get stuck with a sleep session or pay the high markup they charge for the equipment.

So I am has anyone else been in my situation.  No current Dr but needs a new RX.  Looking for an easy way.

Thanks
Richard

RE: Resmed s9 motor has exceeded life
If your script hasn't expired, just use it to get a replacement.

If it's expired, then the next easiest route for you is to talk with your primary care doctor. They should be familiar with your PAP usage and that it's been medically necessary. Ask for a script for the newer model. If your S9 was CPAP or APAP, then either the ResMed AirSense 10 or 11 AutoSet will be your target. If your old 9 was a BPAP, I think right now your target is the ResMed 10 AirCurve VAuto.
