    ok i recieved everything with cpap from cpap .com except mask. i ordered what i was comfortable with there. for brother was full face for me nose plug. all masks are a joke anyway mask will last but straps will not. my guess made that way so you will need to keep buying. Straps usually last 6 months.

    All I can say its a #### tax write off scam and another way to get in the drivers pockets and deduct even more money from them.

    The issue is not sleep apnea, snoreing or what have you. Its about allowing the driver to stop and sleep when they are tired without being retaliated on by the companies! That is the straight forward truth. What is next....heartburn.

    Its like this pure and simple (please feel free to chime in).

    You unload and have to sit in a dock, line or whatever for hours in the morning. You cant really get any solid restful sleep because you are either in line, have to pay attention to the CB or whatever reason. 3-5 hours.

    After unloading either waiting to get another load...or driving to your next load. (3-5 hours) Maybe Longer!!

    You sit at a shipper to get loaded...but cant get any rest because you need to be awake to hear them call you on the CB, or you have to keep moving the truck in line every 15 minutes!
    3-5 hours.

    Now count in eating, doing paperwork, taking care of the truck etc etc. (2-3) hrs.

    YOU HAVEN'T EVEN BEGAN TO DRIVE YET!!

    GUESS WHAT...YOU NOW SPENT ABOUT 15 HOURS OF YOUR DAY WITH WHAT I MENTIONED ABOVE!! NOW YOU HAVE TO DRIVE DESPITE BEING HELD AT SHIPPERS AND RECEIVERS ALL DAY.

    DRIVERS PUT THIS DOWN AS SLEEPER BIRTH/OFF DUTY TIME, BUT WE KNOW BETTER THAN THAT!!

    WANT TO HELP THE DRIVERS...PASS A LAW WHERE TRUCKING COMPANIES CANNOT RETALIATE, FIRE OR HARASS DRIVERS FOR SLEEPING WHEN THEY ARE TIRED.

    THIS WHOLE SLEEP APNEA THING IS NOTHING BUT A RED HERRING!!
