Re: Sore under nose from nasal cushion

Same here, where my nasal septum? meets my upper lip. Kind of a chronic problem. Seems to be affected by being to tight. I try and keep moved away from that area. I need a longer nose.

Re: For Sale AirSence 10 Autoset

Just yesterday I had to send in my regular machine, after 2 years it failed, and got a loaner from them. Which brings up a couple more questions. Is it quiet? Any whistling or other annoying noise?

Re: For Sale AirSence 10 Autoset

Have you recently taken this out of operation, or, is it one of your older backups?

Request advice regarding nasal pillows

I have used the nasal mast Activia LT for years. My dme is telling me they are having a hard time getting restocked because it is out of style and few people use them. I kind of want to change to pillows if I could because my activa is pushing me upper teeth and gums in. I have a year and a half of ...

Re: SleepyHead Software: where to download

If this is true, doesn't that mean that Sleepyhead is capute?

Sleepyhead and PCmatic?

I have had sleepy head for year. A year ago or so, I installed Pcmatic. Since that time, it seems as if pcmatic treats it like a virus or something and when I try to reinstall sleepyhead on my computer, I have gotten the message that it already exists even though I can't see or get to it. Advise wou...

Re: Sleepyhead

I thought I might tag onto this thread and see if you could have an answer to my problem. I have been using sleepyhead. It wasn't working or I should say I couldn't find it. I decided to uninstall it and install it again. I realize now that when it gets to the part where I command it to run sleepy h...

Re: Trouble breathing when I first lie down

Your low is too low and the high is too high. Someone will come on here soon an get you lined about, but, my guess is you should set the low to about 11 and the high at 15. You have way, way too much swing for the machine to handle appropriately. That is NOT the way to have it set up.

Madalot, I would actually be suspicious of a blood clot. I think you should seek medical attention asap.

Re: Original medicare doctor visit requirements

LSAT, that was very helpful, I think I found the answer there, and, it made more sense of what the dme clerk told me. I think everything is going to be alright.

Re: Is any body happy with cpap

Been on this since 2004. When I get to yawning and my eyes feel sleepy, I look forward to strapping on my trusty headgear and off I go into dreamland, hopefully, I pray.

Re: Original medicare doctor visit requirements

I called my dme, asked what they thought about the situation. This particular clerk said, well, we are getting paid for what we bill them, so she thinks I am fine. They do seem to change their mind about stuff. If I called today and talked to someone else, I would get a different answer. Thanks for ...
