I need some input.  I work in an area that we have minimum of a 2hr transport time.  I need a good CPAP setup that will handle that and not blow through all the oxygen in two rigs combined.  Using the current setup we have to flow at a rate of up to 25LPM to get about 10 of peep. Suggestions?

Please message me either on here or at

Yes, The greatest thing since slice bread. I've used it on several pt.and have litteraly watched the respirations come down, co2 levels come down and o2 sats improve greatly. I also sleep with one, and get a great nights sleep.
