Re: Need help, suspect UARS. Want to try APAP - need advice and guidance.

Just want to add that I see some flow limitations - minor, but you may be able to up the pressure slightly to correct that. With an EPR of 3, I would guess that your feeling of difficulty breathing is more psychological than anything else. I do know that if I use the suggested size small nasal pillo...

Re: Cleaning unreachable parts inside the machine

I also want to point out that in the Airsense 10 the air flow is through the filter before flowing through the humidifier. he the air goes through the hose, into your nose, through the lungs then is exhausted through the mask leak into the room air. after being diluted through all of your room air t...

I can hear mine at pressures greater than about 12 cm h20. I use a white noise generator program running on a box fan to mask the noise. It works well for me.

Yes, allowing a party to save face is very important to getting what you want/need. Some forumites could learn from a frog.

Re: Very difficult to contact doctor

Go to the dr office in person and talk to a human. It's hard to avoid someone who is standing there. Then once you get your prescription and so on find a different Dr who is responsive to patient concerns.

Re: Resmed 10 and "Events Per Hour"

Another possibility is that you are wearing the masks too tight or too loose. You need to get into your sleep position to see if the mask is loose or tight. When you wake do you reset the mask tighter or looser? I know in my case with full face, nasal and pillows I need to have my masks tighter than...
