Re: MiAmigo's CPAP thread

Curious if when you were on 5-15 anyone suggested you raise the 5 (min) to e.g. 7-8 and see what happens - it's the usual fix for a high AHI without other issues (and the max at 15 is more likely to be at 20 for most). But I would also ignore the Elite - really not as good as the other(s).

Any reason you're on one pressure vs auto?

Re: How food affects sleep, from NYTimes

So sorry! "This has not been a very good year for sleep. With the coronavirus pandemic, school and work disruptions and a contentious election season contributing to countless sleepless nights, sleep experts have encouraged people to adopt a variety of measures to overcome their stress-related insom...

Re: Unbelievably tired after a night’s sleep with CPAP

Need to know full name of which machine/model you have (look in front and top) plus what mask and most important - what are your pressure settings?

Re: Why is my Face Swollen?

Look at 'liners' on Padacheek.com - they're good at helping with small leaks.

And cover your headband with e.g. clean T-shirt cotton - wipes can't clean the band, only your face.

Are you sure the swelling can't be from something else you might be allergic to (e.g. in food)?

Re: Airline ADA allowed CPAP use; how do I wear mask over nasal canula-mine blows air out of it; do I put others at risk

Again, very sorry for your situation, but you can't simply put others at risk because of it regardless of changing laws, your rights, and your desire to be in Ireland. Everyone else has rights as well. Perhaps you can find a therapist to help deal with the feelings criticism brings on - by putting y...

Re: Airline discrimination-ADA protection & HIPPA protection.

They are worried that when you exhale through machine, you could spread Covid to everyone else on the plane - other issues in the past re using Cpap are irrelevant. And people DIE from Covid every day - it is not just like a cold even if only Omicron, plus original Covid and Delta are still around. ...

Re: Hyponeas (sleep study) ?

Have you ever tried not sleeping on your back - and using something (e.g. stuffed pack in back, or foam wedge) to keep you from flipping in your sleep? I can almost guarantee your hypops would go way down. While they're not AS serious as apneas, they still count and can certainly affect sleep qualit...

Re: New, still waiting for a device, options?

If there are nos. on the bottom, esp. large(r) ones, post those too, and whatever mask info you can get... we'll help with fitting, advice, even UTube videos to explain those. Remember btw. that the machine learns to match your breathing, not the other way around. Also don't feel you have to tighten...
