Re: Nose Bridge vs Seal Leaks...at my wit's end

My nose is so far indented between the eyes that I never did find a full face mask (other then the view/dreamwear) I use a nasal mask now, but for full face masks only the philips dreamwear works. (the one that's like the view but generally better.) but sometimes moleskin does work, you can stick it...

Re: New and having problems with CPAP. Can you help?

Just a thought. a 45 minute ramp seems extreme to me. I had a 5 minute ramp and it caused me anxiety issues. Personally I'd try turning the ramp off altogether.

Re: Joggin/exercise difficulty

I would definitely see a doc as others have suggested... in the meantime... I did have some strange effects happen as my adrenaline started kicking back in, racing heart, out of breath etc. adding magnesium to my diet definitely helped. According to studies most apnea sufferers are short on it due t...

Re: Full Face Mask AND Taping Mouth Shut?

I've done it as well. it prevents pressure differential by full face mask, then with the tape prevents air being forced into the mouth. with Nasal only I'd have outward mouth leak, with ffm only I'd have inward mouth leak (at least with certain masks, not dreamwear). So I can understand doing it. I ...

Re: Body twitching when using cpap

Most likely you had the twitching before CPAP therapy... Now you just wake up from it since you're not dying from suffocation in your sleep.

Nasal Vs. Full face

Do you think Nasal is actually better at keeping apnea's away? (Less Apnea's with lower pressure) or does the escaped mouth air when it's trying to unobstruct your airways simply confound the machine and make it miss apneas... and in fact mouth ones are better because they create a closed system?

Re: New Dreamwear FFM

Don't know but someone here is reselling their barely used one for like $120 US cause it didn't work quite right for them. I'm loving it so far.

Re: Denver Doctor

I wouldn't call my doctor a good sleep doctor, but she didn't mind. Actually I don't know that it matters if your doctor minds. I don't know that the can really do much about it... at least if you don't go below the prescription minimum. She works at Clinix. Kelsey Ninow. I honestly wouldn't bother ...

Re: Waking up every hour and a half.

The machine is only recording what slips past the defenses...not what it fought. So the minimal AHI means the machine didn't let many events slip past the defenses. We have no idea how many it prevented except your sleep study without cpap showed 66 events per hour. If you don't use the machine you...

You're no longer suffocating at night nor having constant adrenal fatigue
Read his post again. His AHI is going above 30 with CPAP. He is "suffocating".
oops Sorry, don't know how I missed that. THanks for setting me straight.

Re: Why won’t my CPAP work on airplanes?

The pressure on an airplane is set to 8000 feet above sea level pressure. That could cause it. As CG pointed out there are machines specifically rated for flight. Mine does fine in Denver, I haven't taken it camping in the mountains yet... but now you have me worried! :shock:

Re: Help with leak with Total Face mask

Tell me how it goes. I was never able to get this mask to work, Also I'd be willing to send you the old school hockey mask one as well. I don't think I'll be using it.
