PHILIPS SYSTEMS RECALL - Future Purchases [POLL]

RE: PHILIPS SYSTEMS RECALL - Future Purchases [POLL]
I worry about new CPAPs being incompatible with OSCAR -- and creating a run on used AirSense 10s.

Otherwise, if a Philips accessory was superior, I'd use it.

I've been to two sleep labs and three different equipment suppliers. Philips always seems to be the system they most often had on display tables and as loaner systems. It would be so much better if more equipment providers were promoted besides Philips and Resmed. Competition is good.

I have a possible theory about these machines I'm reading about that have a burning smell. I noticed some years ago that if I go several days without washing out the humidifier, it can develop an odd smell. Not the algae / ?mold? type smell. More of a burning rubber smell. It's almost as though something has become concentrated in the water. I normally use distilled water, but have used tap water on occasion when I have no distilled. I kinda thought it's maybe dust from the air getting in the water and getting concentrated, or maybe something - minerals maybe - in the water getting concentrated. I've been dumping and washing every refill.

As a longtime fan of ResMed devices, I was disappointed with my local VA office when they told me they only carried the Dreamstation. Now, I have to deal with them to handle the recall.  They didn't tell me about the recall.  I only heard about it from a sleep clinic where I have an new study and MSLT scheduled in a week.

I'll be falling back to my ancient S9 Autoset and my Airmini. I prefer the AirMini over the two for the algorithm. But I have to boost my sinus moisture with Pretz even when I use the Humidix Plus disks.
