I was told that medicaid only pays for one kind of machine and if I wanted one with the data I had to pay an additional 150.00 of which I don't have. They fitted me with the Resmed mirrage Quattro full mask and am on an auto pap (Respronics not sure which kind ( she didn't say and it doesn't either) for two weeks for a home study. After they get my cc then they will get me the script for my own machine.
Question,,, Can I get my own card reader for the machine I am going to possibly get off the internet? Or does that only work with some? It isn't something I could get till my husband gets back to work but it would be the best senerio since I will have the machine 5 years.
Otherwise if I want to know what it is I will HAVE to take it to the DME to read it. That woman is going to hate me... I'm not one for being left in the dark. She said she would give me copies of the readouts for the doctor but I would like to know if I am leaking or all the other questions that come up on a daily to weekly basis.
PLEASE tell me there are options out there...
On a great note... I took a nap today with the cpap and other than not being able to get the house quiet enough to really take the nap I was able to handle it well. The only thing was once I got done with my 30 minutes my chest was sore. Is this going to happen until I toughen up due to not breathing this way or is this something to be alarmed about already?
You guys have been great! This is my third post and I always get quick precise answers and loving, encouraging thoughts. Thank you all for your help during this time of need.
