Apnea devices can you help

A friend of mine from Holland has just posted on another forum the following ,can you help in his search
After lots of tests in the hospital my wife seems to have a serious apnea condition.
This means she will have to get a breathing device when sleeping. At first when I saw the amps of 6.67 amp / 12V at the commutator I was getting really afraid for my independency with my campervan during the darker days of the year.
Posts on a german campervan forum couldn't completely reassure me, because the answers contradicted each other in the Wh devices were using during the night. The humidfier could be responsable for most of the amps. Some user had one - other didn't.
We are considering a Resmed 9 or 10 because a friend adviced us. Amps should be low and they could be connected directly to 12V/14V (avoiding going from 12/14V-220V and back to 12V again). They even have a easy transportable version
Perhaps somebody has experience with this or other equipment like Philips or ..... We still have to have the final meeting with the specialist, so all campervan related issues for this are welcome. thanks for reading .Frank
PS he is a motorhome owner but caravaners would need devices for this condition also

I suffered with sleep apnea for a while using a breathing mask and the machine came with a 12 v plug I never used it in the caravan and thankfully an operation on my throat I no longer need it , but a good tip I found in the caravan was to take a small battery fan pointing at you so it improves the airflow towards you and it helps your breathing overnight
