Wondering if anyone has heard of this
Hi Ya'll, Cowboy here.

I definitely don't want to break any forum rules. It is my understanding that this product does not exist but is in development or something.

I am wondering if anything like this exists already. According to this webpage they haven't even started raising funding. It says they are going for public funding next month.

Anyway. I am wondering if this might revolutionize the cpap therapy field. If it worked for me, I would definitely want one for travel. I currently do not lug my equipment around when I go camping or vacation for a week.

Admins or Mods, please make any changes to my post, if needed to comply with rules. I apologize in advance if I screwed this up.

I did a search of forums for "Airing" and nothing came up, so maybe I am the first to find out about this. Enjoy!

There are other threads on this item. Start with a guy wants funding and other people's information, but has no website.

Both. The thing is fraud from top to bottom. Throws out a lot of terms. Look them up. Fraudsters count on people not investigating any claims. How is a powerful fan and battery going to fit inside a Superbowl Ring? No patents or patent pending. Strange for a prolific inventor. An Internal Medicine doctor with no distinguish awards on the medical advisory board. Why no Board Certified Sleep Medicine doctor? Again, why NO WEBSITE?

First, they'll have to develop the perpetual motion air pump. This looks like a leftover April Fools joke.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

well...shoot. Good to know. Fraud didn't even cross my mind because cpap seems like such a fringe medical therapy. When I started a few years back, I had never even heard of it and no one I knew had either. I use to call it the secret cult of the mouth breathers.

Now and then I see it pop up in popular media and shows, but i figured that was resmed or respironics paying for product placement.

My wife mentioned this to me last night and emailed it to me from work today.

Like the first time I saw the universal remote...I thought to myself, "This changes everything!"

First thing I thought of when I saw it was "where does the battery go and do I want the weight of one on my nose?"

RE: Wondering if anyone has heard of this
That claims are unrealistic and designed to appeal to all those people who failed at conventional CPAP and want a device that is so minimal, it is impossible. You know what they say, "if it looks too good to be true, it probably is?. A CPAP machine needs to have control circuitry, blowers and power to produce constantly varying pressure and flow. It also need to be approved as a medical device which would take years. This fundraiser is right up there with the "SOLAR ROADWAYS" fraud. It will make one or two people rich on a promise that cannot and never will be delivered.

RE: Wondering if anyone has heard of this
The technology is not a fraud. It already exists in the form of Piezoelectric Micro Pumps which currently have medical applications. Takasago, a Japanese company, is one manufacturer and it's devices are described as miniature, slim and lightweight diaphragm micro pumps which enable continuous micro fluid delivery. Self priming, low noise, low magnetic noise and low power consumption achieved.
I know nothing about Stephen Marsh who is pushing this application and saying air can be the fluid that the pump delivers.
Whether it can deliver a pressure over 10 cmH2O to address apnea - I don't know. I would have to research it and I don't feel motivatedSmile

if you can't decide then you don't have enough data.
