zonk, that can be read in so many ways...

Trust me, CPAP is the better solution.

Just an additional thought, however.... It might be prudent for you to keep at least one working old CPAP machine to use if/when your current machine has problems. Going a few nights without CPAP while waiting for repairs or a new purchase can be rough. Always good to keep a spare on hand, if needed.

That, in fact, is exactly what happened a couple of weeks ago. Over a decade on CPAP with nary a problem, and I had to deal with maintenance calls twice in the last few months. The first time turned out to be defective tubing, but a couple of weeks ago my S9, out of nowhere, started making buzzing/wheezing noises. And then the air it was pushing up my nose started to smell like burnt plastic. I think the fan got out of alignment or something. Huge hassle with many screwups, but I got the machine replaced. Was very glad I'd never gotten around to donating my old machine. (And that I knew how to access the clinical menu on the S9. Whoever replaced the machine had set it to the wrong pressure and mask type.)
