Notes

1. MLSC = My Local Sleep Center, a pseudonym for the actual sleep center I used.
2. A quick visit to the Resmed web site reveals that the latest devices are the S9 Series. The S9 Series is NOT offered by MLSC.
3. ALL MLSC "Product Specification" LINKS to the Resmed web site go to the Home page, which has no specs.
4. M.L.S.C. does NOT offer a single BiPAP machine.
5. MOST CPAP Supply USA and CPAP.COM machines are newer than those offered by MLSC.
6. CPAP Supply USA, CPAP.COM and CPAPPLUS.COM have direct-to-consumer pricing that is about 1/2 that of MLSC.
7. This entire business seems to be characterized by extremely variable pricing, which allows exorbitant pricing when the prescriber is doing the selling. Nice work, if you can get it!
