It’s a shame there can be such a stigma attached to using the machine.
No stigma for me. I just tell them, "You look like you could benefit from using CPAP."

Re: Weight loss drug trial claiming to reduce Sleep Apnea. Hmmm?

From the subject article: In both trials, people on Zepbound lost, on average, around 20% of their body weight, which Lilly suspects contributed to the reduction in sleep apnea events. Most likely, the immediate cause was the weight loss. In people who did use PAP machines, Zepbound led to an averag...

trial and error
That's the way the human race started. Starting in Genesis 2:18, God uses trial and error to find a suitable helper for Adam. :D

That's about all you can do. Trial and error.

There are 29 reviews here, but IMO, most of the reviews are useless. https://www.cpap.com/productpage/snugz-cpap-mask-liners

How do you feel near bedtime? Fatigued but not stressed? Energetic during the day? Any excess sleepiness during the day?

Re: New spray offers hope for people with common sleep condition

So you're saying they ran it several times and swapped around the taped and untaped folks? 1. They ran all ten subjects through with a placebo. 2. Later, they ran all ten subjects with the spray and untaped. 3. Later, they ran all ten subjects with the spray and taped. My conclusion: It was a very ...

Re: New spray offers hope for people with common sleep condition

Two groups, one mouth-taped, one not. There's only one group that was studied three times. How do you interpret the following sentence? There was no systematic change in apnea-hypopnea index (AHI3) from placebo versus BAY2586116 with either unrestricted or nasal-only breathing versus placebo (47 ± ...

Be careful what book you choose!

The narrator matters, too. Some are dreadful.
I listen to a podcast by a terrible guy. It could be that I sleep to avoid listening to him.

Re: Leakage and Pressure Level adjustment

feel my leakage is still on the higher side On the chart you posted, your mask leak (95% - 15.6) is low. The machines adjust for mask leak up to 35 lpm (manufacturers say 24 lpm). If the leak is not waking you up or causing dry eyes, I wouldn't worry about it. Why did you only post 8 minutes of the...

Note that the improvement was only noted in those not restricted to nasal breathing... what's up with that?
Check it. It's the other way around. The study was restricted to those who do not breathe through the mouth. It could be poorly absorbed in those who mouth-breathe.
