Smile Have you given your CPAP a name?
I know I'm not the only person who has given their CPAP a name.

I call mine "C Pappy". Not too original, so I'm wondering what name you've given to your CPAP.

I haven't given my APAP a name. Nothing wrong with naming it though. Thinking-about

Hi MAPnea,
I haven't named any of my machines but I sure do appreciate the technology and find it fascinating.
If it helps you with your therapy, go for it.

RE: Have you given your CPAP a name?
I refer to mine as, 'Sullivan' rather than, 'My Machine'. Of course, the name comes from a character in 'Monster Inc', a kids' film to which my several grand children introduced me.
It is not expected that any of the membership will believe my explanation given that I am an Australian.

No name but one morning felt to get cricket bat out and smashed it to pieces
Glad did not act on impulse otherwise would been a costly batting Hammer
