Are you searching for an easier way to keep  your CPAP machine clean?

Tired of lugging home distilled water and rinsing out hoses and hanging them up to dry?

Do you skip cleaning your CPAP all together because it is too time consuming?

Are you CPAP user suffering from frequent upper respiratory infections because you do not clean
mask and hoses properly?

Do you have a family member who has a CPAP machine, and you are concerned that they do not clean it properly or
often enough?

Are you a caregiver who is looking to simplify this aspect of your daily routine?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, your investment in a SoClean 2 may be worth your while!

If You have Medicare or other insurance, you may want to check if they will reimburse you for some of the cost of
SoClean2 . Check with your provider. Plan on no coverage, but it doesn't hurt to check !

Your Medicare Coverage: Sleep apnea & Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy

Your Medicare Coverage: Durable medical equipment (DME) coverage
Your costs in Original Medicare
You pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount. Medicare pays for different kinds of DME in different ways: some equipment may be rented,
other equipment may be purchased, and you may choose to rent or buy some equipment.

Medicare will only cover your DME if your doctor or supplier is enrolled in Medicare. If a DME supplier doesn't accept assignment, Medicare
doesn't limit how much the supplier can charge you. You may also have to pay the entire bill (your share and Medicare's share) at the time
you get the DME.

RESPeRATE is the only non-drug therapy cleared by the FDA for the treatment of high blood pressure

to lower high blood pressure naturally.
Not a Drug
Proven in 10 clinical trials to lower blood pressure
No Side Effects
Doctor Recommended
Pleasant and Easy to Use

High blood pressure is generally caused by your blood vessels tightening up and narrowing. This then causes your heart to pump harder.
RESPeRATE’s unique breathing exercise relaxes constricted blood vessels to reduce high blood pressure.

Harness the natural power of breathing to lower blood pressure!

When you use RESPeRATE, you put on headphones and attach a sensor around your chest.
RESPeRATE’s breathing sensor automatically analyzes your individual breathing pattern and creates a personalized
melody composed of two distinct inhale and exhale guiding tones.
Simply listen to the melody through the headphones, and your body’s natural tendency to follow external rhythms will enable you to easily
synchronize your breathing to the tones.
By gradually prolonging the exhalation tone to slow your breathing, RESPeRATE leads you to the therapeutic zone of less than 10 breaths
per minute.
Within a few minutes, the muscles surrounding the small blood vessels in your body relax, blood flows more freely, and your blood pressure
is significantly reduced.

'Tis the gift to be simple,
'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain'd,
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
To turn, turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come round right.

I have the tendency to make things more complicated than they need to be.
When caregiving, this is an easy trap.
Here are a few products that make navigating through the day easier, simpler.
Eye-Vac Pro Electric Dustpan

traditional dustpans. The Eye-Vac EV1850 Professional Automatic Dust
Pan is a 1200-watt stationary vacuum that picks up dirt, dust, and hair
instantly. Just sweep debris into the path of its always-on infrared
sensors, and the Eye-Vac will vacuum it away instantly, turning off

added convenience. Ideal for tile, wood, vinyl, concrete, and most any
non-carpeted surface, the Eye-Vac's cyclonic vacuum action with

Minimalistic Designed Remote with Very Advanced Learning Features
Fobis Technologies WE-XW Weemote X TV Remote Control $34.92

Use this remote control with virtually any system, from basic TV and cable boxes to the most advanced home
theater system. Program only the functions you want for a completely customized remote control. The Weemote
uses a minimal amount of buttons so it can be used by anyone, especially children and elderly users. Buttons are
dedicated to the most standard functions, such as power, mute, and volume and channel control. Five additional
buttons can be dedicated to your favorite channels or programmed to include a number of advanced functions,
such as a sleep timer or video input control. Very advanced learning functions make the Weemote compatible with
just about any brand of television equipment.

The Weemote can also be programmed to restrict certain functions. Volume control can be turned off to ensure it
won’t get too loud. The channel up/down buttons can also be programmed to cycle through certain channels,
limiting the access to your available channels. Programming buttons can only be accessed by removing the screw
and cover so you can be sure your settings won’t accidentally get changed if someone sits on the remote. The
Weemote requires the use of two AAA batteries, sold separately. Once the batteries are installed, the battery cover
must be screwed back on, keeping the batteries secure until the screws are removed. All settings are stored
regardless of battery level so reprogramming won’t be necessary when you replace the batteries.
