Well, some of us get up and down all night, and so the magnet would be nice.... But it's $100 so no-go for me!
it's easier to just disconnect the short hose and leave the mask in place.

Re: zonker therapy thread redux: vauto is coming

On a more serious note. When I moved from the Air 10 AS for Her to the VAuto, Pugsy advised me on the settings based on my AutoSet settings. She also shared her experience on increasing Pressure Support (PS) to 4. Based on her experience, I set PS to 4 and love it. Feels so much more comfortable th...

Re: My Airfit P10 nose pillows slip off

to add to the replies you're getting, did you know that putting the p10 head strap in with your laundry and dryer can shrink the strap back down a bit?

you might want to put it in a laundry bag first.

good luck!

Re: Resmed Aircurve Water Tank Mod

Has anyone modified the Resmed Arcurve water tank in a way that makes filling easier? My thought is to make a 1/2" hole in the top of the tank to allow filling via a funnel. The new hole in the water tank could then be plugged with a rubber stopper. This would eliminate the need for removing the ta...

In essence, setting the trigger higher encourages the machine to help you more, with less effort on your part.
well, i certainly need MORE machines in my life doing that! :lol:

Try setting trigger to high, or very high.

Diagnosed in June 2021. Due to recall etc i’m still waiting for a machine. A kind soul gave me a used machine but I don’t know if it’s appropriate to use it since I have no idea how it works or what settings I need. Tired of being tired.
