Re: First 7 days events per hour

My machine is the same as yours the AirCurve 10 but it has taken me many months landing on the correct mask. I am using a Medtronic’s F20 full face mask. I really think I tried dozens of masks, hybrids, nasals of many different types. I’m lucky that I have a wonderful VA right next to me and without...

First 7 days events per hour

I am bowled over reading my events per hour on the first seven days using my Bipap machine. I’m beyond happy and still can’t believe it

Finally my events per hour are low

It has taken many months to finally get to the point where my events per hour are consistently going down, down at times even to a big fat Zero! They are alway below 1 and hover around .3 or below. On the first of this month I was .1 the second .0 the 3rd .2 the 4th .1 the 5th .2 and the 6th .1 Fina...

After months!

After numerous mask changes and countless adjustments I think this is a pretty darn good score to end out the month with a .5 event score.

CPAP Pro, mouthguard holds nasal pillow

I have a real problem with any mask with straps so I was excited when I read about the no strap and headgear of the CPAP Pro. I boiled water and put in the mouthguard and waited till it was 150 degrees and bit down real hard. I had to loosen the hose clamp to adjust the hardware getting everything i...

Double sided hypoallergenic tape solved my seal from leaking

I have had a love hate situation with my f30i hybrid mask. I love it because my nose area would always be red and a little swollen from repeated use of my f20 mask. The under the nose f30i had always been appealing to me. Even though I’m a pretty big guy at 240 pounds I wound up using the small wide...

Cushion sizes ResMed f30i

I received my sleep kit for the f30i and it contained, small, medium and wide. None of these sizes seemed to work. I took another look online and saw that they also offer a small wide so on a hunch and a bit out of desperation I ordered this size. From the night I tried it I had no leaks and get 100...

Re: Newbie on how long it takes to get rid fatigue and claustrophobic feeling from full face mask

I know the feeling. I’ve switched to the ResMed f30i under the nose full face mask and love it. In my fit kit they supplied a small, medium and wide mask but couldn’t get 100%. I found they made a small wide and love it. I’m 6 feet and 240 pounds. I thought it wouldn’t work but it sealed perfectly. ...

ResMed f30i full face mask

For months, I have been trying to find an under-nose mask that seals. I first tried the Philips DreamWear under-the-nose full-face mask in all sizes, but they all leaked. I didn’t like the continuous nose slits. I then decided to try the ResMed f30i under-nose full-face mask. The kit came with small...

f30i cushion size

I love this mask but I’m having a hard time getting the correct cushion size. The small cushion is just too small and the wide cushion works but it could be a bit wider. The wide cushion fits but is a little too wide. My starter set only came with these three sizes. I see that a small wide cushion i...
