ResMed S9 now personalized
#1
I had not realized just how attached I have become to my ResMed S9 AutoSet in just a few days. At my sleep specialist's office the office took my CPAP and whisked it out of sight - I had the strangest feeling of being somehow robbed of part of my life. Part of me was saying, "Wait, how do I KNOW you will get MY CPAP in the correct exam room??? What if it gets mixed up with another person's CPAP??? ARGH!"

So, while searching for the correct 12 Volt DC connectors I came across a website for a company that makes skins for...CPAPs!! At $35 I am not going to do that (even though I Love the van Gogh Starry Night). So, I got busy with some wallpaper trim I picked up at my local thrift store and got busy.

Also, on the more practical side, I DID put labels on the CPAP, humidifier and the transformer for the power cord.

Good question! Probably would not want a wallpapered purse, though, Grin!

That is really beautiful, Evpraxia. I think you should sign up for an etsy account and start making these skins for others!! Must have taken you a long, long time to do this. Just beautiful - thanks for sharing.

Hi Evpraxia,
Whatever it takes to help you with your CPAP therapy, go for it.
Have you named your machine yet? Some people have done that, too.

I've been thinking of getting the flame duct tape and covering mine. Or glow in the dark duct tape. Yeah. Do they make that?

If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.

I've seen those skins also.

But they were too expensive for me as well.

What you did here is really cool Smile
