1800CPAP Would Like to To Give Thanks To…

Thankful for CPAP

In honor of Thanksgiving, we are giving our list of 30 things for 30 days of November we are thankful for.

1.)    Our loyal customers (guess that’s a given, huh)

2.)    Selling ResMed CPAP products lower than anyone else online.

3.)    That we can offer the average person affordable CPAP machines, masks, and supplies even when they do not have insurance or have a very high deductible.

4.)    That public awareness of sleep apnea is increasing.

5.)    The manufacturers are improving the quality of the CPAP machines and most importantly, the CPAP masks.

6.)    Our wonderful staff that work their hearts out getting your orders processed and delivered.

7.)    The S9 Autoset and all the wonderful feedback we get from this ResMed product (regardless how we feel about ResMed as a company)

8.)    The sleep technicians and doctors that continue to inform patients about alternative ways of getting their CPAP supplies (i.e. send them to us; we’ll take care of them).

9.)    New product lines we are now selling that allow us to extend warranties and offer lower prices like the DeVilbiss brand of products.

10.) Philips Resprionics releasing new products to give ResMed a run for their money.

11.) Australia and New Zealand customers. We love to ship ResMed products to you, helping you save thousands.

12.) Dr. Javaheri and all the wisdom on sleep he had provided us before we set off to create 1800CPAP.com

13.) Fisher and Paykel for their continued support….

14.) The ResMed Swift FX; still by far our top selling nasal pillow CPAP mask and motivating all the other manufacturers to be creative in the design of their nasal pillow masks.

15.) The internet and social media formats that allow us to get our education, awareness and products to the consumer.

16.) The insurance companies for being greedy and charging high deductibles, premiums, and co-pays.

17.) Blogs, not only our CPAP blog but others that include us or link to us and give us a very “grass roots” style of advertising.

18.) Our Open Box and Refurbished CPAP machine program for giving people with little means to money the ability to get a gently used CPAP machine for a fraction of the cost of a new one.

19.) Our medical director Dr. Dickerson and all the hard work he does for the home sleep apnea testing program.

20.) Our intestinal fortitude for rejecting the policies of some major manufacturers and their minimum internet retail price regulations.

21.) Our friends and family that supported Mark, Jason, and myself during the development of 1800CPAP.com

22.) Sleep labs that are waking up to the fact that there are more than 2 manufacturers of quality CPAP products and prescribing other manufacturers.

23.) Heated CPAP tubes. Since these products have made it to market we have solved more and more nasal dryness issues.

24.) Jessica, Vickie, Kris, Stephanie, Peggy, and Tony.

25.) Respect for the lessons we have learned along the way. Making the best CPAP company out there isn’t easy.

26.) The 100’s of sleep technicians and technologists we have worked with locally that support our stores.

27.) Less than reputable online CPAP companies out there that make people appreciate the serive they get from 1800CPAP more.  Ever notice some these companies don’t list their personal names or address of locations. Got to wonder what they are hiding (youneedmorals.com should be the name of their site).

28.) Auto CPAP machines. Fixed pressure just doesn’t cut it anymore and besides, auto CPAP can be auto adjusting or fixed.

29.) The end of political commercial on November 7th.

30.) Health, happiness, true friendships, loving family, and everything else that makes us live for what we do.
