Some help needed
my 7 year old Resmed CPAP quit working last night. Apparently I am very dependent on it, as I can't sleep. It's a Sunday, thus unable to start the process of getting a new one til tomorrow (Monday)

Am expecting a few sleepless nights w/o CPAP. Any suggestions on how to[/quote][/code][/php][/size][/font] cope with not having the CPAP?

RE: Some help needed
Try to sleep reclined if able. Definetly sleep on your side, not on your back.

You can see if your supplier/DME can lend or rent you a Cpap short term until a new one arrives.
