I arrived in Nashville with no CPAP, I tassumed it would only be one night and the airline would find my luggage and bring it too me. So I just sleep without it. On the fourth day my blood sugar took a leap upward and I went back to my B4 therapy dosage for the next two days. They found my luggage the night B4 I was flying home on day six.
I was reunited with it when I got home. It took a week of therapy to bring the insulin need back down to where it was before the trip.
Good thing you didn't pack your insulin and supplies along with the cpap machine or you would really have been s.o.l. Was the cpap machine your back-up machine or your everynight machine you use at home? I suppose one should be grateful that the airlines finally found your machine and returned it to you. It is also a good thing you remembered what your B4 insulin doses were. I bet you are glad to be home once again?
