    serious help needed from those with obstructive sleep apnea

    I suffer from obstructive sleep apnea and are currently using a Resmed second generation unit. Are there any others out there? What equipment do you use and have made for your unit so you can hang. What weather conditions and temps have you used your equipment?

    I don't use my CPAP when I hammock camp. When in my hammocks I end up with my butt a little lower and my upper body is at a slight incline. It is comfortable and I get a pretty decent night's sleep plus I can also lay comfortably on my side when needed. I guess it depends on how bad your apnea is. I have read someone uses or used to use a battery pack because weight was not an issue. Good luck!
