How to get prescription for auto-BiPAP machine?
#21
Dude! I have the same machine (DS760). The only reason I'm using the Resmed is that is what the insurance got me, and I'm waiting for the 1-year usage to get by in February. I personally prefer the 60 Series BiPAP Auto for its variable PS and 12 volt power. Smartstart and other features of the Dreamstation are not much use to me. Dreamstation models are shorter, but the footprint is still pretty large.

Try sleeping for only about an hour in both of your sleep tests. That's what worked for me, lol. After the second one doc just wrote me a prescription for the fanciest one. In the end, I don't have a big pressure differential (my profile on the left is not right, it's higher now) and I could probably switch to a normal CPAP without issues. The most important thing is getting on the machine!

Alright, alright, ALRIGHT!!! I believe you, I will not look anymore, I will shred the manual I asked for if and when it comes, I will rinse my eyes with bleach, and see no more dreamstation advertisements.
Okay
If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.

Might want to try offerup.com

Way more machines than CL in my area.
