Re: Can artificial light damage mask?

The water flosser works quite well, as does a fizzy denture tablet--
---But it takes a lot of rinsing to get the minty smell out.

Re: Cpap machine

Hopefully, the System One has had its foam replaced . . .
If you can afford to self-pay, go for it, but specify Airsense 10 AUTOSET
or AUTOSET FOR HER. The Elite and "CPAP" models are limited to single pressure.
The "free" loaners seem to be intended for those who have no choice.

Re: Can I use antibacterial soap on humidifier

What defines "mild", anyway?
If you can use it on yourself without getting a reaction--probably close enough.
The idea is that tiny traces left after rinsing do not cause redness and itching.
Since everyone is different, my mild may not be your mild.

Re: Phlegm in throat can't sleep

I might suspect GERD. (Gastroesophageal reflux) You would have had it all along, but some people think that positive air pressure makes it more noticeable, if not a bit worse. Note: "Some people" are not necessarily right--but it's still possible. I take a prescription PPI (pantoprazole), which help...

Re: Philips Respironics Recall V2.0 Questions and Answers

It is an outrage that Philips is getting away with this CRAP!
No wonder the internet lawyer scum are slobbering over victimizing people further.
I guess it's a sign of the times . . .
The woods are full of carnivores, people.

Re: OT: Super Froggy--cancer, part 2

Bullfrog had his dr appointment this morning--"picture of health". Well, that makes one of us . . . I don't quite feel like crap--just crap-ish. Mostly a good thing. This afternoon we see a SHIP rep to find our best Medicare part D supplement. We do this every year--the one year we didn't, we got sc...

Re: Tuning it in

I considered chin up strips, but decided to cut my own out of painter's tape.
It worked rather well, up until my yap somehow learned to behave without help.

Re: Terrible Velcro On Philips Nuance Gel Pillow Mask Driving Me Nuts

I believe the flimsy headgear was why I quit that stupid mask. It was easier to switch masks than make my own headgear. Things have changed. Of course, now I have been making my own beanies and headcovers, because Medicare will not cover even the tiniest share of the outrageous prices the commercial...

Re: What is your biggest CPAP struggle?

We do it out of our love and respect for our fellow apnea sufferers. Experience with a horrible system has taught us that in most cases, this process is "do it yourself"--out of necessity. I suspect the "good" doctor was hoping for an "easy button", and is not likely to return. Or offer thanks . . .

Re: obtaining cpap rx from Kaiser

Good luck.
The Kaiser reluctance sounds ILLEGAL.
Talk to Medicare about their trying to push you into working with Apria.
Raise a fuss. It is your RIGHT TO FIGHT.
