Musings of a Marfan Mom

Needs a Name

| 16 Comments

It’s no secret I name medical equipment. As I’m writing this, Baby J is sleeping with his CPAP on for the first time! This is huge! Hooray!

Since it seems like the CPAP is going to be around for quite awhile (seeing as J will now actually use it!), it’s time for the machine to have a name.
CPAP and pulse oximeter
On the top is the pulse oximeter, which checks J’s oxygen levels. The blue box in the middle is the CPAP (which can also be used as a BIPAP or a ventilator). At the bottom is the humidifier.

So….name ideas?

  1. Nigel. I have no idea why but that is just what came into my head – probably because I am sleep deprived this morning. So happy that Baby J slept with the CPAP on!

  2. I don’t have any great suggestions, but I’m SO with you on naming medical equipment. :) I think the name will eventually evolve into it’s own. A few years after I got my first insulin pump, it’s name evolved into “the governor” and then just “the gov.” I have yet to name my new pump, but I’m sure it’s name will come. :) SO glad to hear baby J was able to sleep with the CPAP! Here’s to many more sleepfull nights ahead for all of you!

  5. Glad that he slept with it on! I thought Rosie, like the robot from the Jettsons. Don’t know why. But maybe not since he’s a boy. Hmm. Alright, the only thing that’s in my head now is Mojo Jojo, that evil monkey from the Power Puff girls. Sorry, I’m useless. :)

  10. Do you like people names (George, William, etc) or thing names (like “gov,” or “egg”, above)??
    Cause, if it’s people, you should name it Greta, and if it’s things, I can’t think of a good one, but I would call it “Pappy” (cause it’s a cPAP) or the “airman” or “puffy”

  11. Reminds me of Kevin, Screech’s robot on Saved By the Bell!

  12. Good idea, M. Except that I’d just use “Screech”, after the noise that this thing makes.
