Help needed please

RE: Help needed please
I found the one local DME that is covered by my insurance and called the doctor's office yesterday, so they can send the perscription to that DME.  Now I am waiting to be contacted by the DME, who knows how long that will take.  I have already decided that I won't except anything but a Aircurve 10 VAuto (with 0 hours on it).  One possible good thing I found out is that normally my insurance will pay to rent a machine for 3 months, before buying it.  But because we are at the end of the year and I have met my deductible for the year they will wave the 3 month rental and authorize a purchase now, instead of waiting to next year and forcing me to pay a new deductible all over again.

Another piece of information.  From the titration study they were using some type of Phillips Respertronics machine.  When they where testing bipap mode, it woke me up.  The inhale/exhale cycle I described to the sleep tech as feeling like being punched over and over again.  I asked her what the pressure was and she said 18.  I told her I couldn't continue like that.  She turned the pressure down.  I think I layed there for another hour, and never went back to sleep, before the test ended.
Cheers.

Craig
