All Is Well

This is my CPAP machine that helps me keep breathing while I am asleep. The doctor was very pleased with my progress in getting used to the machine and is going to wait to put me on oxygen - till we really know I need it. You would be surprised at how quiet the CPAP is. My little fan I have on in the room to move the air around and drown out unwanted noises is louder.

I feel much better now that I know it takes time to adjust and I don't need the oxygen right away.

Had to take the machine with me so the doctor could make sure of the model that I had - he said a few times the patient had the wrong machine. The nurse took the card out of it while I was holding the hose and stuff in so I didn't see how the card went in. Well after I got home and hooked it all up again I put the card in and the lights went wild and there was a beeping noise so I pulled it out and put it in the other way and things went back to normal. At least it is almost idiot proof which is a plus for me.

I have never seen a CPAP machine, I type about it sometimes in my medical transcription. I hope it works for you and makes you feel better! Are you crocheting anything these days?

That looks like my machine except for that white patch on the top.

Do you have two hoses on your machine or is that just an extra long hose?
