ResMed S9 CPAP PSU in Edinburgh, UK?
December 24, 2014 4:20 AM   Subscribe

Where can I get a PSU unit for a ResMed CPAP in a hurry in Edinburgh? The sole UKsupplier is in London and now shut until the New Year, and there's no post anyway. Nobody seems to be answering the phones at my London clinic or the Edinburgh equivalents. PSU is custom and has non-srandard connectors: hacking an alternative seems a non-srarter.

I snore like an adenoidal walrus blow-starting Concorde, so as well as the standard sleep apnea effects I risk being brutally done away with by a bed companion driven insane. Christmas hangs by a thread!

That must be wretched (as a fellow osa patient, I know whereof you speak!). Perhaps try phoning the Department of Sleep Medicine at the Royal Infirmary and ask them if they can help,

Maybe your doctor would know where you can find an entire CPAP to borrow for a week?

Call 111 from any landline or mobile phone to speak to NHS 24 - they will be able to advise you if an NHS hospital or specialist unit can loan or give you the correct equipment.

Response by poster: For closure: I ended up calling the UK dealership when the office opened between Christmas and the New Year, and they overnighted a replacement PSU.

My only recommendation, which is a basic rule for most gadgets, is to get a CPAP in the first place that either has an internal PSU with a standard mains connector, or a standard DC input. Avoid anything with custom power requirements.
