any of the ones at your drug/chemist store or amazon, they would be about $10

For auto-cpap, from machine data or software. You can set the min pressure 1 or 2cm below 95%. Or clinicians commonly use the maximum or 95% pressure for fixed pressure CPAP, this can also be used for min pressure.

RE: soft cervical collar
The OTC collar from Amazon for about $10 comes in a good selection of sizes and is quite comfortable. It has the added advantage of preventing chin tucks. I've been using it for several months. It was one of the few I found with a size selection guide. It comes in three heights and a range of collar sizes.

RE: soft cervical collar
I use a "one size fits most" one from the local drug store (they have two, that one and a rather small one).  It works fine for me, but I should probably look for something closer to my large neck size.  Don't over think it.
