I have a Contec cms50F, it can record o2 levels over a 24hr period. it is like a large watch with a finger monitor that plugs into it. Its USB rechargeable. Cost me £79.95 in the UK through Amazon.
I use the Contec CMS50F Pulse Oximeter. It is worn on the wrist and can store data up to 24 hours. It is available on Amazon.
There were no problems in uploading it to Sleepyhead.
I use the Rescomf CPAP cleaner which runs for 30 mins cleaning and then 5 minutes with just plain air to blow away any ozone odours. I have never had any problems after it has completed its job.
I have the CMS50F and it will record data for up to 24 hours. I have also imported the data into Sleepyhead.
I bought a Rescomf Ozone Sanitizer. I normally remove the mask and plug it into the Rescomf machine to clean the CPAP for 30 mins. Then attach the mask back to the tube and plug the other end to the Rescomf machine and put it all in to a plastic box with a lid and let it run again for 30 mins to clean the mask.
These Ozone sanitizing machines seems to be widely available and have also seen them advertised on British TV.
I have a Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset and when I initially got it, I did not have the humidifier. A few months later when I was complaining of a dry mouth, they gave me the Humidifier and heated hose.
Has anyone used a Rescomf Automated CPAP Cleaner & Sanitizer?
I discovered this today, it is a very small USB charged machine (so its wireless) that you can plug your CPAP machine in by removing your mask and plug the tube into the Rescomf machine, switch it on and it will sanitize your CPAP machine (including the humidifier) and the tubing with Ozone. It runs for 25 minutes and then automatically switches to just air and blows away the Ozone for 5 minutes. finally it switches itself off.
You can also just plug in your tubing and mask into the Rescomf Machine, place all 3 into any plastic box with lid and let that run for the 30 mins, which will then sanitize the tube and mask. The price for this machine is €45.99 in Europe. Fully charged the machine will last for about 7 full cleaning cycles before it needs recharging. There is no cleaning/sanitizing products to buy.
I think I will be buying one of these, but would like to know if anyone has actually used it.
Quoted from the Rescomf Site:
The Rescomf CPAP Cleaner automatically cleans your CPAP or Bi-Level Machine using Ozone, also known as activated oxygen, in only 30 minutes. Simply connect your CPAP or BiLevel machine to the Rescomf, turn it on , and walk away. In this 30 minute time frame Rescomf kills 99% of disease causing pathogens such as mold, bacteria and viruses that grow in the CPAP mask, hose and water chamber. The Rescomf measures only 4.75″ L x 3.75″ W x 2.12″ H, taking up very little night stand space and can easily be transported anywhere. Instead of having to worry about an electric outlet or the voltage the Rescomf runs on a rechargable lithium ion battery with a 10 year life. Each charge should give you no less than 7 full cleaning cycles before requiring recharging. Recharging is easy through any USB port or through an AC outlet using the USB adapter.

Yes, I also received one as well. I haven't opened the attachment either.
I have sleep apnea and I am also diabetic. I can wake up and be totally confused due to having a hypo (low blood sugar). Generally in the first few moments I don't even know how to switch off the CPAP machine and can be clawing at the mask. I always eventually remember and then get up and have some milk (or something similar) and my blood sugar levels return to normal. Not a very pleasant experience but can happen to all diabetics when there blood sugar levels go too low.
I use the Resmed Airsense 10 and have both the heated tube and humidifier on auto setting and have never had a rain out. I used to wake up with very dry mouth, but since having the heated tube, it is now the occasional slightly dry mouth. Having them both set to auto I do not notice any warm
air as I was a bit wary in the beginning of using a heated tube thinking that heat=hot air.
