BTW, is it even feasible to use the Winx with CPAP, or no way? (obviously this is only for true masochists...)
No real updates at this point. The system's been great in terms of saliva, no problems there.
It's still loud-ish at times, and doesn't seem to turn off like the trial system did once a vacuum is achieved. Sleep isn't feeling too different from the CPAP, maybe because the constant pressure changes vacuum are keeping me up? It's hard to tell, going to try a Zeo to see if I can map out sleep stages, or something like sleep stages. It's possible the device is working great, and remaining sleep problem(s) are something else.
Also following up with Apnicure on the remaining things. They've been very responsive so far, but with a new system the options are kind of limited.
I'm thinking of asking the Dr's office to borrow the test machine for a few days, see if the sleep feels different on that one.
As far as it goes for others using it, I think the only concern I would have right now is the noise due to it being on most of the time. Dunno if that's intended, or something that's not supposed to happen. Could also be something due to me, such as it losing vacuum somewhat and having to adjust.
