I have taken two tests at home one on the finger.
one on the finger and chest both said that i have apnea.
how ever they said i need to come in for a $1400.00 over night study
after spending $200.00 for the first and $450.00 for the second.

my ? is i have a friend that just got a new cpap and gave me his old one that is set at 11 i just don't know if i should try it and see if it helps or save up for the overnight test. I'm just tired of being tired all the time. And money is an issue.

Most people will advise against this simply because HIS Cpap has ALL his bodily (breathing) fluids/colds/flu bug/possible diseases/personal organisms IN the machine, That machine is HIS machine...If you think the money you have forked out so far is ridiculous, wait till you start using his equipment.....can't blame anybody when you REALLY get sick from someone else's "stuff". The medical facility should be able to get you help, or send you somewhere that will help you. Good Luck...I know your plight, please be careful.

I enjoy being with a group who like to share their "Hosehead" experiences, to remind me I am not alone.
