Wisp Nasal PIllows - 3 pack with 2 I can't use
I was issued a 3 pack of nasal pillows when I was first issued my CPAP machine. Equipment provider wouldn't take back the two smaller ones that clearly were too small. Hate to toss them. Is there anyone that can use a Philips Respironics WISP nasal pillow with the size markings X1 S/M or X1 P?
If so, send a mailing address to [email address removed - see below] and I will mail it out. I hate to see them wasted and I can't use them.

Note from SuperSleeper: Hi JC, hate to remove this, but current laws indicate that CPAP mask parts are likely to be considered durable medical equipment parts which are prescription-required items, and as Apnea Board is not a licensed Durable Medical Equipment provider, we have to close this thread and remove your email address. Wish it weren't so, but it's the law. (and I personally think the law is stupid) Sad

Jon, I am good on cushions. My DME gave me one the other day that I had forgotten about.

Check out Supplier #2. They used to accept new and gently used items on behalf of the American Sleep Apnea Association (ASAA). Check out their website for shipping instructions.

Unfortunately, the way the laws are written now, and the way we have to interpret them, is that these are prescription-only items. Hence Apnea Board cannot be involved in the sale or transfer of these items.

Donating them to charity is about your only option.

I have tried to give mine away, but I haven't had any luck. Recently I threw away a bunch of them because they were just taking up space.
