I am not a provider, but a user getting tired of schlepping the S9 around. Doubt insurance will cover another CPAP within 2 years, but I am willing to spend the $1K it takes for the accessories needed, if the travel dependability and breathing experience is good. Thanks.
I'm in the same boat as you…except I haven't owned mine for two years. I'm a consultant and travel a TON for work. I love my CPAP, but it is such a pain in the rear to go through security with and, quite honestly, I'm a little self conscious about schlepping out this device and having multiple bags on my flights each week. So, I ordered the Transcend Auto Travel CPAP with EZEX (easy expiration) as my travel device. With the optional humidifier, it was $670 on Supplier #1, and I can use my existing hose and mask with it (which saved a little). I'll let you know how it goes after my first few weeks on the road with it!
What a service to so many!! I am curious how the "experience" is--does it feel similar to regular CPAP with an exhalation relief? or require a little getting used to? Also no specs on the weight of the electrical/transformer cord--and imho that is where the weight comes from the ResMed machine. Finally, any luck CPAP sleeping on the plane, and was that arranged with any certainty? Thank you.
