FYI The FMCSA is researching testing Commercial Truck Drivers for sleep apnea as part of their bi annual physical and pre-employment testing. Without a doubt there are many drivers who have untreated sleep apnea. While this can be burden on the trucking industry. it well help find drivers who are in need of treatment. It's just just one more way of getting your goods from place to place safely.
I thought I should check in. I am 68 yo Male with OSA diagnosed in 1999. I had it for longer than that as I was prone to snoring I had slept in most rooms of the house after my wife woke me up to change rooms. Most morning I woke up with the little headache in the middle of my forehead (home of your CO receptors). My Dr. asked my wife if I stopped breathing while snoring, she said yes and the rest is history. Mine OSA was not caused by being overweight or inactive as I was a 190# 6'1" Fire Captain with an active life. For the past 15 years I have become the "poster child" for using my machine. My sleep doc's words, not mine. I don't even nap without it!
Thanks for reading my lifes story. Don
After being a CPAP for 15 years and a few machines later, I use RP system one, it's designed to eliminate rainout. It does quite well, no water is the tubing or mask. I just change my nasal pillows and filters regularly and don't worry about the rest. I too drive a truck and travel with my old RP machine W/O the humidifier. I try not to over think to much. Just keep things clean it's all good!
