home made cpap how-to

Saw this on a nytimes article comments


North Carolina

For all the complexity and resultant expense of CPAPs, it’s good to remember that they are only fans, a device to push air. I forgot mine once and found myself 700 miles from home. I can’t sleep at all without a CPAP so I bought a Dust Buster from Target and a hose and mask for a hospital supply place. I put the dust Buster on blow instead of suck, and it worked fine. Not as good as my Res Med, but adequate. I love my CPAP … [continues]

in the comments section of that article.

Quoting out of fair use 🙂


I was also able to make one “kind of” that worked by sleeping under a card table, with cardboard draped on one end of the card table, and me right under that, then a fan pushing on the cardboard so the cardboard directed the air into my face.

Problem is you roll over and your face gets out of position.  But works up front.

I then replaced that with basically a “big ol’ fan” (carpet cleaner type lasco) directed at the foot of my bed ointed at about my hips.  Then the air kind of shoots over your face during the night.  This one requires ear plugs for noise and kind of shakes the ground…but works when those dang docs won’t prescribe a cpap and you need something to not die at night…

Not sure if the last two are as good as a cpap but they helped me from dying! Started getting weird shaking sensations upon waking, waking up exhausted.  These were work arounds.

Leave a comment if you want more details.

For me they “can’t” diagnose me with OSA since I don’t have it, just trouble breathing (back pain related?) but i need air, man, or I sleep like crud!

windows gdb woze

For bug reporting instructions, please see:
Reading symbols from C:\Users\Administrator\ffmpeg_submit/ffmpeg_g.exe…Dwarf Error: wrong version in compilation unit header (is 4, should be 2) [in module C:\Users\Administrator\ffmpeg_submit/ffmpeg_g.exe]
(gdb) r
Starting program: C:\Users\Administrator\ffmpeg_submit/ffmpeg_g.exe

I think maybe meant “use a newer veresion of gdb” anyway

this worked



Type “apropos word” to search for commands related to “word”…
“C:\Users\Administrator\ffmpeg_submit/ffmpeg_g.exe”: not in executable format: File format not recognized


meant “you are using a 32 bit gdb with a 64 bit windows exe” (methinks?)
