    Everything stays in the bag. Shoes on and belt on. I do carry a small toolkit for work and I remove that, I was told it looks like bullets, so it is not a big deal anymore.

    I travel extensively, and most of the time I don't have to remove my CPAP or electronics from my backpack or bags unless I'm in a regular TSA line because of the lack of a TSA line.

    It wasn't even one of those big honkin' ones the cops use to teach that boah some manners. Just a little single AA cell LED model. Can't even start a fire with one of those.

    Hey Chad. Send me one for field testing. I'd be happy to give it a try.

    Thanks Moose, we'll certainly keep that in mind...I think we're good to go but I'm just waiting on availability and pricing confirmation to get to everyone.

    Recently attended an informational seminar.
    They have about 6,000 patients so far. So still early in field. Prices are high, insurance covers quite a bit, but out of pocket is still a lot for most folks. They run some tests to see if it is a viable option It uses a battery that is good for about 11 yrs. high success rate but they are cherry picking ideal bodies at this time. If I won the lottery, or I could volunteer to be the first patient (for free) of a new doctor in my area, I’d sign up tomorrow. Surgery is about the same as installing a pacemaker so not worried about complications.

    You will have to post up the competiton so I can better understand. We are not trying to necessarily compete with anyone on pricing. So you understand you can get almost anything on Amazon cheaper that what we will produce it for. Amazon creates incredible pricing and is great the Consumer. But often the reason why you can get incredible pricing is that some companies on places like that are just the manufacturer, or trader in china offering a product similar to what other offer in the USA, but without a phone line you can call, they have maybe just a warehouse, and only sell on Amazon. So they have no insurance, no over head, barebone operations only supplying Amazon. So you won't see a price from many name brands that actually develope products, advertise for them, have insurance on them, and have larger staff to have phone lines you can call. That just how it works. I can go to Walmart and get an ok pair of running shoes... but if I want my favorite that have much more ventilation and better shock absorbing I get my Asaics, and they cost way more, but they are actually better.

    Has anyone moved from the Resmed P10 nose pillow to the Resmed N30? If so, any thoughts?

    One of my Antigravity Microstart XP-1 units swelled up and died. I emailed and then wrote a letter to Antigravity's rep who had given me his business card, but never an answer. Then the second XP-1 swelled up and died. I see that ConsumerReports rates them the highest for starting cars, but support was a bit lacking for me. I do need to get two more such units...one of these days.
