Re: Advice before I buy a CPAP

Unless you have concierge medicine, don't expect much.
Most doctors do not have the time or incentive to do what they are not paid to do.

Re: Airfit P10 Extremely Noisy

Just a guess---but make sure the pillows are firmly clipped into the frame.
And turn down/off the TV.

Re: Can Sleep Apnea effect my Weight Loss?

Some people have less trouble losing weight--or they could be lying.
Treating apnea can help, if your apnea is responsible for your weight gain.
Sometimes there is no connection.

The beta is positively worth a looksee.
Historically, beta of this type of software is relatively complete.

If costs are prohibitive, your friend could ask charitable organizations for help.

Re: New Resmed Airfit 10 - finally arrived

You are planning to sell the unit that was recalled?
After factory repairs, I hope.
Or will they send you the philips encrypted model--brand new?

Re: Do I still have sleep apnea?

Thank goodness your bite has been improved.
Sorry if you expected the surgery to do more than was possible.
OSA is usually due to irregular structures not easily reachable during surgery.

Re: cleaning routine

Are any of the sanitizing machines good? So the ozone is not good that's 03? And what about the ultraviolet light, is that a waste of money also? Aren't they using that hospitals.

Well, maybe not nasty, but not fun either. The diarrhea is stubborn, but even a half of an imodium totally freezes me up.

Re: Are CPAP machine hose standard?

I destroyed two hoses in my first month of treatment.
In my sleep--no effing idea how.
Since then, I have hung my hose from a DIY crane attached to the wall above my pillow.
Now my hose is safe.
