Sleep Apnoea Forum Bringing Help + Support to the Patient

Hi

I'm new to the forum.  I would like a compact machine for use in a camper van.  Does anyone have experience of this using electric hook up?  I would welcome your comments.

  Thank you Graeme

If you are hooking up to the mains it is not a problem if you are in the camper van.

I used to use CPAP in a caravan hooked up to the mains all the time.

However, if you are in a tent, that is a whole new ballgame.

ResMed has small travel machines and so has Philips Resperonics, they are fine for a few nights, but they don't have proper humidification so they can be a bit dry when in use, they also are a bit noisier.

A tip that was passed on if using on was if you are in a hotel is to use the Velcro clips and stick them to the side of a mattress.  If camping, to keep them below head level as much as possible.  They try to tell me they are quieter if you do this.  I have no idea, not used one.  Other thing to keep in mind is they come with very short hoses.

There are machines that will run on 12Vdc and are quite small, but humidification will be a problem.

Thanks.  That's really helpful.  I think I might just keep with electric hook up and use my regular machine.
