Arrow CPAP Clinician Setup Manuals - we need more!
~ CPAP Setup Manuals Online - we need your help! ~



Just wanted to remind everyone that we have instructions posted for setting pressure for some common CPAP machines on this web page:

http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual

We also post a notice when we add a manual to our CPAP Clinician / Setup Manuals page. Click here to see our history of notices.

Just make sure if you're going to adjust your own pressure, you research the consequences, and remember that if you're in doubt, it's best to have your doctor, clinician or DME (Durable Medical Equipment provider) adjust it for you, based on a proper sleep study.

ALSO, We need your help! if you have a Clinician or Setup Manual for a CPAP machine we don't have on this page, if you'd like to scan it as either JPG or PDF, simply email it to me at apneaboard@gmail.com. If you don't know how to do that, you can photocopy it and send a copy to me via US mail to our PO Box, which is Apnea Board, PO Box 62, Dixon, IL 61021.

I'll make sure any Setup Manuals you send gets announced here in the forum and posted on our web page (link above).

In addition, we have some manuals that are too large to post on the website, but these can be emailed to you. Please follow the directions on our CPAP Manual Page


Please help us... Apnea Board survives on the kindness of our members. If you have benefited from these manuals or the forum, please consider wrapping a dollar or two carefully in a piece of paper, putting it into an envelope to help us pay for the increased bandwidth hosting costs, or using a major credit card.

We would certainly appreciate anything you can do to help out. We can accept small cash contributions through the mail, personal checks or money orders made out to "Apnea Board" or credit card donations through PayPal. Our mailing address is:

Thanks much for anything you can do. Even if you can only donate 2 or 3 dollars, that is perfectly fine. If you're unable to contribute, that's okay too.

Thanks!
