I'm glad this is working for him. I suspect he will be less likely to "forget" to take the magic box in the future. Sometimes we have to learn things the hard way!

I have found learning things the hard way is too much work. So when I need to learn something the hard way, I ask my wife to do it.

I just got my RM S9 yesterday. Clinician set it up with too low a pressure.
I have been using a Puritan Bennet 420G for 9 years, but it is finally wearing out and PB no longer makes a CPAP.

The PB came without any way for the patient to review anything. But neither I nor my physician ever needed that info (Not saying that sometimes it wouldn't be important for the resp. therapist or physician to review. Just that it wasn't in my case.) I would not have known how to use that info anyway--especially at the beginning.

The S9 seems to be an excellent option for me and I really like the small nose mask with the slimline hose. All very light and comfortable.

One of the reasons for choosing the RM S9 was the light weight and small size. Kaiser usually provides a Respironics "brick". I travel fairly often and wanted a machine I could just throw in my suitcase with a mask, not a big extra case.

I usually (With the former PB 420) would leave the humidifier at home. That works for a few days. Just swallow a little water during the night for the dry mouth and throat. Over the long haul, the humidifier is important, but on a short 5-7 days, this works for me--maybe not for everyone, of course.
