Re: LSAT

Check your local Facebook Marketplace. I found my backup machine that way. I often see several machines listed in this area.

Re: F&P Evora Full Face Mask

There is flexible flap located in the mask frame right above where the hose connects. This is the antiaphyxiation valve.

Re: Full Face mask???

My wife and I both used the ResMed AirFit F20 for two or three years without having major leaks. You can also look at the ResMed AirSoft F20 with the foam around the edge of the cushion.

Re: Question regarding SD card usage for Airsense 11 Autoset

1. You can not get access to the cloud data from your machine. Some of it can be seen by members of the medical community, but it is not available to the users. 2. There is limited data stored in the machines memory. This is similar to the information you see using MyAir. 3. You can only view the de...

Re: OT.....Trump falling asleep in court

In the past, he has made claims that he sleeps only three hours a night. If I did that, I wouldn't be able to sit still more than five minutes without falling asleep.

Re: Confused regarding Mask/Tubing/Humidifier Tub Cleaner

When I first started treatment, I used baby shampoo to clean my equipment with. After about a year of using the shampoo, I decided to just use dish soap and have been doing that for the last seven years.

Re: Journey to Optimizing my CPAP Settings!

I would recommend an increase in your minimum pressure to 9. If you feel that is too much of a change, try it it at 8. You bumped up against our upper limit a few times, but it was for a short period of time each time. I would leave the upper limit where it is for now.

Re: My provider

People that do not use PAP machines do not understand how much leaks can disrupt a person's sleep.

Re: Blowing my own trumpet...AHI -low events achievement

Congratulations on your low numbers. Yes, the medical community considers anything under 5 as being properly treater. However, many of us here on the forum consider anything higher than 2 as being unacceptable. My AHI is usually less than 1.

Re: Help my poor nose!

When I had that problem, I used a small piece of moleskin on my nose every night. You can find it in the foot care section of Walmart or drug store. If you decide you need to use it for an extended period of time, you can buy rolls of it from Amazon.

Re: New ResMed full face mask....the F40

I'm always looking for a "better" full face mask. I have used the Evora since shortly after it came out. I will check with my local DME on Monday to see if they have it in stock, yet. Doesn't look good. They don't have it in stock, and the person I talked to said she didn't know if they would stock ...

Re: CPAP recommendation (DS1 alternative)

The most recommended machine here is the ResMed Air Sense 11 automatic. A close second is the Air Sense 10 automatic or automatic for her.I'm slightly biased as I have only used ResMed machines. The sleep lab my wife and I use only prescribes ResMed machines.

Re: Cleaning CPAP Equipment

As often stated here on this forum, we all clean to the leave we are comfortable with. If someone wants to clean things every day, that's fine. If they only monthly, that's fine, too. What ever level of cleanliness you are comfortable with is up to you.

Re: Inclined bed: a solution for apnea's and snoring...?

I have used an adjustable (inclined) bed for several years because of severe arthritis of the spine. When I did my sleep study, I used their hospital bed so I could raise my head when I slept. My AHI was 49 when sleeping with my head raised. I don't think the inclined bed helped me very much with my...
