Q: My Resmed s9 bipap machine is making a loud noise. What should I do?
A: A loud noise coming from your Resmed s9 bipap machine could indicate a problem with the device or mask. First, check that your mask is fitted properly and not leaking air. Next, ensure the air filter is clean and not clogged. If the problem continues, the noise could be due to a faulty blower fan or other internal component. Contact Resmed customer support for further help and potential repair or replacement.
Q: How often do I need to replace the filters in my Resmed s9 bipap?
A: Resmed recommends replacing the air filters in your s9 bipap machine every 2-4 weeks for optimal performance and hygiene. The filter helps prevent dust, pollen, and other particles from entering your airway as you sleep. A clogged or dirty filter reduces the airflow and effectiveness of the bipap therapy. It’s a good idea to purchase a bulk supply of replacement filters to have on hand so you can change them regularly.
Q: Can I take my Resmed s9 bipap machine on an airplane?
A: Yes, the Resmed s9 bipap machine is approved for use on airplanes when traveling. Follow these tips for traveling with your bipap device:
• Pack the bipap machine, power supply, tubing, and mask in your carry-on luggage. Do not check the device in with your regular baggage.
• Bring a portable battery pack as a backup in case of a power outage. The s9 bipap can run on DC power using an adapter.
• Inform the airline you will be traveling with a medical device and may need to use it during the flight. Request a seat with a power outlet if available.
• Run a quick test of the bipap after going through security to ensure all parts are working properly before boarding the plane.
• Use a protective carrying case and pack the bipap carefully to avoid damage.
• Consider bringing extra filters, tubing, and other disposable parts in case anything needs to be replaced during your trip.
