I am travelling from Australia around Europe for one month. I am looking for a standard 9not auto lightweight CPAP with a humidifier at a reasonable price. Any suggestions.

Low End CPAP
by: Anonymous

Google it and you will see many advertisements for CPAP companies will sell you the Resmed S9 Elite. Shop around. Also consider buying a slightly used higher end CPAP for a lower cost.

Now what I am about to say may not apply to you. Only to others.

Just take what you have right now on your trip. Thousands of people travel with theirs all the time with no problem. If it malfunctions, then get it repaired under the warranty and get a loaner. Or at that time buy one. Go ahead save your money. I say this because about 3 months ago there was a man who was about to dish out close to $900 for a particular CPAP. Why? he wanted one that took less space than the current one. for his 3 week Asian Holiday. I showed the man what the difference was in actual inches and weight. When I asked him that if he felt saving one inch of space is worth $900? He decided against it. He then & there decided he was taking his current CPAP unit on his vacation trip.

At any rate, regardless which type of CPAP you buy.....practice using the new CPAP at home first before your trip. It will feel different when compared to your current CPAP. You never want to try and sleep with your new and different CPAP in a foreign bed , in a foreign land. It can take awhile to get used to it. Practice using the new CPAP at home first.

I hope this helps.
