Re: CPAP Basics - 15 - Table of Contents

One small point.

You might want to remove the "15" from the subject. New users might think that this is part 15
of something (which it is) and therefore not the place to start reading.

I'm not sure how "Table of Contents" relates to CPAP Basics, but I certainly have molette to thank for bringing the topic I originated to life. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and for that, I am truly honored. For all I know, the Basics posts may have just drifted off into obscurity without his help, but now it's "stickied". I wasn't sure what that meant until I read this thread.

My last post on the CPAP Basic topic will be this weekend, and I can only hope it meets everyone's expectations.

By the way, while I can't say the title, the second edition of my book is now available for anyone interested.

Jim, actually Molette understood what we wanted and took the appropriate actions such as coming with the table of contents on various topics of interest he created that is now a sticky. He deserves all the credit.

OK, but I'll have to see how that works out in the sort.

Maybe call it "Part 0" (zero)? That should sort properly AND alert the reader that it isn't part of the "meat".

This wasn't imitation or flattery. It was replacing the fluff with actual information that is useful. No bias. Nothing to sell. Just good, useful information. He listened to the responses to your posts and gave us what we asked for. You seem to ignore our responses and simply continue on with your infomercial. Kind of like a telemarketer on the phone who follows a script regardless of what response they get.

Oh, I think moving this to the top section is even better. Well played, Carolyn, well played.

I am on day 5 of CPAP usage.
I discovered this forum on day 2 and I'm hooked.

This thread by Mollete has taught me more about my OSA and CPAP than everything I have read before.
Mollete, I want to thank you sincerely for what you have done here. It is a significant achievement and is incredibly helpful for a naif like myself.

Thank you for all the info! I went to my DME today anticipating a fight, armed with printouts of information. When I got there, however, he had a ResMed S9 Elite waiting for me, asked which full face mask I wanted, and said my Dr. specifically prescribed the "better" tubing (whatever that means). Obviously I still have lots to learn, but I'm well on my way :)

Hi,
I'm in need of a CPAP machine and I'm told that the S10 is the best. Is that true?

I used this forum back in 2012 and got much needed help on a problem by wife of 61 years had, caused by her cpap. She was using a sleep machine that was rated as the "best" at the time, with a heated humidifier and was working exactly as it should, knowing because it was taken back so many times. She was having "chronic" diarrhea and our family doctor of thirty years and every specialist in our area said the problem was not caused from the cpap treatment. It was into the "third year" of the usage and absolutely no improvement was detected. A male, in his forties wrote in this forum of his "problems" and, low & behold, it was exactly as my wife. He had her stop using the treatment after being told the same info as the doctors here had said, that it was not a "cause of the equipment! He said that her problem "went away" and asked here if anyone had heard of the condition. My wife, again, told the specialist here and, again, was assured that it was not from the machine. I took it upon myself to completely remove the humidifier section and use only the breather. NOW HEAR THIS!---HER DIARRHEA WAS GONE IN FOUR DAYS AND HER SYSTEM WAS BACK TO NEAR NORMAL! The doctors here still shook their heads "NO", all but one, and he took interest in the case, again! Asking if she would help him, and go back on the humidifier and be watched extra close. She did and with-in five days was back into the same side effects!
It is now registered with ALL the doctors in our area and we were told that the info was going to be listed on the MD ALERT system, for all to read. THE ABOVE INFORMATION IS VERY, VERY ACCURATE AND VERY TRUTHFUL, SO IT MAY BE HELPFUL TO OTHERS! Just yesterday,Feb 4th 2016, she went for a check-up and, the doc showed much interest in the situation and was real concerned, even yet. She has never had the problem since. So, as was described, the entire problem was excepted as being caused by the treatment, mainly 100% by the humidifier, and that portion has been shelved since. She uses her machine nine hours-a-day, every day, and even when traveling, never sleeping without it. HOPE IT HELPS OTHERS! binkbee

I am a new CPAC user as of last night. Reading the manual Resmen S10 with a full face Amara View, humidifier airsense 10 and the heated hose tube. I read that I need to clean daily with a mild soap, all these component except the CPAC machine. Now a few newbie questions, 1) the heated hose I washed this morning and let it dry but there is still a few droplets inside, is that will be okay tonight when I use it? and 2) the humidifier is completely dry in the inside, but also is droplet water in the bottom of the humidifier, I guess the bottom is the portion that gets hot, this bottom area is not possible to dry it with a towel due to the aluminum plate above the plastic humidifier. Any recommendations will be appreciated.
