...And then there were changes...

Haven't been on the forum recently - carried off by other things, but I do want to give an update of the changes I found myself making in my therapy. It's a little more than 8 years since I started my CPAP therapy – and recently I realized that things that work just great when you start out – may ha...

Re: S9 Reviews

I wear trifocal glasses to see and I use a full face mask. So do I, and I'm extremely short sighted. BUT if I were to want to change the humidity level settings in the middle of the night, it would not be a simple task. take off mask, find glasses, press buttons to get to humidity settings, change ...

Re: I miss seeing posts by ozij.

Hi Jeff, Someone brought your post to my attention. No need for you, or anyone else to apologize -- the reasons keeping me farther away from the forum have nothing to do with the forum, but rather with the fact that there are other demands on my time just now. I'm fine, no need to worry about that e...

Re: Pressure With Oxygen

Todzo, you mentioned stress and I notice that when Mike fixates on something to worry about, like not hearing from a favorite nephew for awhile,which happened recently, and I compare those nights with the data ,I begin to see an erractic pattern that develops which then causes me concern. He doesn'...

Re: Pressure With Oxygen

Hi Dori, I don't know it the added oxygen changes the pressure at all - I doubt it. However, even if it does so, the machines are built to supply constant pressure - even though the pressure if the mask / hose varies - as it migh - due to leaks, changes in inhalation etc. In other words, I doubt ver...

Re: Doctor Refuses to see me.

Do you have the doctor's latest Rx? Did he himself change the settings on the machine? Any chances it's the PA lying to hide the fact the machine is not set the way the doctor wanted it? I would drop a doctor who diagnoses "equipment malfunction" by phone and refused to see me faster that a hot pota...

Hi Ricky,
The forum was a similar godsend to me when I started years ago; by taking the time to post your story you're helping future newbies.

Re: Taking control!


I bet you half the techs you meet don't even know enough English (or Swedish...) to read the patient's instruction manual, let alone the clinical manual. Of course they're peeved when you ask questions!

Re: New User uestion: Has anyone heard of....

Hi Geula, When I started CPAP therapy, 7 years ago, I was given a trial of masks - until I found the right one, and they even switched me from one machine maker to another. I did have a fight on my hands, and changes didn't happen before I told them I will not continue before I see the doctor again ...

I just saw this new thread about Provent and don't have time to read it all right now. Is anyone here using Provent successfully and can give me advice? I had a thread going, but don't know if I should continue to post there, and maybe put a link here, or post here... Well, the short story is that ...

Re: Low Vitamin D level appears to cause sleep apnea

Vitamin D isn't likely to help your sleep apnea. If it did, I wouldn't have sleep apnea. Per doctor's orders, as a result, of another medical condition, I take 50,000 IU of vitamin D3 each month. Yet my AHI is still 40 unless I use a CPAP machine. That statement may be true, but is irrelevant to th...
