Traveling with CPAP
#11
Just got back from Dallas. What an odd city. And DFW airport? Disaster that found a place to happen.

Anyway, the only CPAP adventure I had is the lid on the humidifier kept coming off the first night. Again, half asleep and exhausted, I fumbled with it several times before it finally stayed on. Not sure exactly what I did. Tomorrow I'll put it under a good light and figure it out. Leak rate was good, though, so it must be "fixed".

Oh, and on both airplane trips, they did not swipe the CPAP. I had to take it out of the bag, just like the laptop, but they never swiped it down. Neither Charlotte nor DFW.

The S9 humidifier lid is one of life's great mysteries. It pops off for no obvious reason when changing the tank sometimes. Then you go to put it back on and it either immediately pops in, or you fumble with it over and over, and then, suddenly, it snaps back on with no clue as to why it goes on one time and not the next.

I guess I should go fiddle with mine for a while when I'm fully awake and see if I can figure out the mystery of putting it back on.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
