RE: Leaving the CPAP at home whilst travelling??
I would never go anywhere without my CPAP. Sleep apnea is a serious life-threatening condition. Not only would you probably not feel good after going 1 or more nights without your CPAP but you could just not wake up one of those nights. I have had several people in my family and a friend of my husband die in their sleep after being diagnosed with sleep apnea. Don't take the chance.

Sometimes is more wiser to stop drinking water on a trip. Stick with beer or soda OPENED IN YOUR PHYSICAL PRESENCE. And never over ice.

Trust me. Don't ask how I know this. Details are classified. Or should be.

Sounds like you have been to some of the same places I have. NDA doesn't have a expiration date. :grin:

The only time I haven't used my machine on a trip is when I had 3 hours from the time I went to bed until we got up. Back pain helped keep me awake during the rest of the time.
