They have battery operated heating blankets.  There are 3 of us on sleep machines that have to use electricity. 

I remember when they would not let us use CELL PHONES because it could harm the dialysis machine.  I called Fresenius and they said... they said that to cover their butt.  That was in 2001.  Looks like that was debunked.  LOL

I remember that.  I used to sneak my blackberry in and keep it under my blanket so no one would see it.  Those were the days before you needed data to get on the internet.  I used to chat with my friends through AOLIM.  Damn, I'm  old. *LOL*

I was planning on sneaking in a usb powered heating pad, but the power bank I was going to use no longer holds a charge.  Need a new power bank.

My kids bought me a Zippo hand warmer to take with me, I may start taking it.  It charges with a USB port.

They told us that about not using the same power outlet, but when the alternative outlets quit working, they plugged the chair heaters into the same ones as the machines.
