COVID-19 Forum now open
NOTICE:

COVID-19 Forum now open

The new COVID-19 Forum is now open and viewable for all registered Apnea Board members.  To view the new forum, you must be signed into your Apnea Board forum account.  If you don't yet have a forum account, you can sign up for one free-of-charge, by clicking HERE.

The new forum is viewable from the Main Forums page.  The direct link is here:

http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Forum-COVID-19-Forum


NOTE:  While every member can view the COVID-19 Forum, the "working group" members are the only ones who can post replies in the new forum.  

The "working group" is primarily comprised of senior Apnea Board members.  Qualified individuals, such as verified health care professionals and others may be added to this group as we proceed.  If you feel as though your medical background qualifies you to help out in this forum, please send a Personal Message (PM) to SuperSleeper and we will consider giving you posting rights for the COVID-19 forum.

It is our hope that the working group can take the best ideas from the huge COVID-19 thread on the Main Forum and other places and (hopefully in cooperation with some medical professionals) prepare some general guidelines for people who have no choice but to  self-treat at a time when hospitals and clinics become overwhelmed.

It is our desire to develop a set of practical protocols for people to provide an austere method for self-treatment at home using CPAP, Bilevel, ASV and related machines in the event that standard hospital care becomes unavailable.

For those not in the working group, please continue to post your ideas in the large COVID-19 thread on the Main Forum, as many folks from the working group keep up with what's posted there.  In this way, you can help them progress towards the final goal, and your ideas and suggestions may be integrated into the protocols.

Several members have requested  to have a more organized place to present the best ideas to our members, since the huge thread on the Main Forum is understandably difficult to read through.  The new forum is designed to create a more focused consensus opinion for using these machines and other related equipment, supplies and techniques to fight COVID-19 as best we can, in a home setting.

If anyone has questions about the new forum, feel free to post a reply in this thread.  Please do not use this thread to post COVID-19 information or ideas.  Those should go in the huge COVID-19 thread in the Main Forum (HERE).

WARNING:

As always, NONE of the information in the COVID-19 Forum is is to be considered as "medical advice".  If possible, you should always consult with a health care professional prior to changing anything with regard to your sleep apnea or coronavirus treatment, including settings on your CPAP machine.

That said, this COVID-19 Forum was created for a "worst-case" scenario when traditional health care options are no longer available to us due to medical systems being overwhelmed.  Your primary course of action should always be to contact your local health care professionals if you contract COVID-19, as long as those resources remain available to you.  Information posted in this forum is personal opinion only, and not necessarily a statement of fact.
