Should I just use my dad's recalled Philips dreamstation?!
Is he not using it? If not, what is he using?

How old is your dad's recalled machine? How many machine hours?

Re: Philips corporate ploy

The technician starts you at a low pressure and watches for events to develop. He gradually raises the pressure. This may have to be done several times before he reaches...

putting me in a deep sleep as the brain is "afraid" that it will not get another chance at quality sleep.

I have been using the DreamStation 2 for a week. Getting the settings updated and learning how to use the device was simple. I am sleeping better and my numbers are better.
Did you get this machine as a replacement in Philips' Foamgate? Which machine were you using before this one?

Re: Non-mouth breather suddenly has dry mouth with new APAP

my instinct is to not even bother messing around with the APAP settings to see if they work, at least until the CPAP mode doesn't work anymore.

It must be something else, like food, or maybe a nutrient deficiency or an allergy,
