My mom has bought a couple of them really cheap on eBay. But she doesn't need the tattle-tale kind that rats you out to the NSA company.

I'm not a Doctor, I like to play one on the weekends though. What if, Restless sleep was the cause of waking during the night and not a breathing problem? Here we would have a driver that had to purchase a machine for no reason.

No one ever tests dispatchers to see if they where up drinking and doing blow all night and never slept a wink. By the decisions they make I am sure they do.

I know this does not help answer your question. It's just self serving venting on my part.

Yeah @rigjockey that's why I suggest going to see his Doctor. If he feels he does not have apnea nor require that overpriced company store machine go from there. Probably gonna take an Attorney to stop this kinda bull squeeze.

I think I am going to get another test done, because this is some bull, and get this, next week I wont even get a pay check, so guess what, the following week they will take out double, bs, I am just trying to work and take care of my son, I am a single parent that has custody of my son, this is not cool.

Lol...Ya, it would be fun to try. It takes positive pressure from you breathing to trigger the machine so connecting some device to simulate your breathing would do it. You could also have someone else wear it at home while your driving. The data is also stored in some type of non volatile memory inside so that could be possibly changed.

Can you access & look at the usage data on that thing yourself?

Like if you were to make some kind of contraption that would simulate a breathing human, ... can you see the data & tell if it's fooling the machine properly?

From doing a little research it seems there are different masks you can try. One place suggests wearing a baseball hat. Can you go to a medical supply store near you and see if they have any other masks?

Yes the machine has a data screen on it to tell if it is working and how many hrs u used it for each time u put it on, I would love to know or find something that will simulate me breathing, I would gladly pay someone, its not that I want to totally cheat, but I do want to use machine and get use to it but it is taking me longer then normal and it is affecting my job.funny part of it is the people say that I am getting the the full treatment but not what the company wants, they want 4 hrs or more.
