I simply have an open mind to relating "contraptions" that aren't the norm with devices that we use on a daily basis. I was a bit put off by attaching a tire pump, excuse me, CPAP apparatus, for about 2 days.

Your comparison's are not apt ones and do suggest a negative attitude, at least to me. A CPAP machine gets nowhere close the the pressure a leaf blower or a tire pump can put out. A CPAP machine couldn't even blow up a balloon, never mind a tire.

A pressure of 20cm of H20 (about as high as a normal CPAP machine can achieve) is only about 2% of the normal ambient air pressure at sea level. Your own lungs can do much better than that.
We're all in the same boat here in regards to CPAP. My life will end with me crippled in a wheel chair along with chronic joint and muscle pain on disability (provided .gov ever agrees with multiple Docs after 3 years and counting...) thanks to my "inheritance" of a spinal condition. Now I added yet another "condition" (CPAP). We have a choice to cry about this junk, or somewhat embrace it as life's little sense of humor. Lighten up and don't take life too seriously. it's only temporary. Laugh-a-lot I suppose my references to Darth Vader's Breathing Apparatus might go a bit far as well... Sorry to offend. It's just my way of not losing it.

I'm just glad this CPAP thing runs on 110v as having to pull start it every night between gas refills would get old quite fast. Dont-know Nevermind...
