Re: general questions/therapy

Does anyone feel like mask liners affect and/or reduce air flow? When I use the Silent Night liners on a FFM, the airflow feels different to me. "feeling" doesn't come into play. Mask liners *cannot* change the airflow, they don't get in between the mask and your nose, unless you're using them very...

Re: general questions/therapy

Free equipment

I have a FlexiFix 432 FFM (medium) that I'm getting rid of. It's free, except for the shipping cost. It is new, however, I did try it on for sizing. I'm getting rid of it because it's too big for me.

Re: general questions/therapy

Hi everyone! I did a one night experiment. Despite aerophagia, I bumped EPAP to 7 with EPR of 3 ---CPAP mode. Though not perfect, flow limitations improved significantly with EPR of 3. Flow rate graph still looks abnormal to me. Questions: 1. Flat line/dips at top of inspiration curve: What are thes...

I was using Somnifix, but it is fairly expensive. I like the idea of cloth tape. Any suggestions?

For mouth taping I tried Somnifix but had a reaction to it. I now use 3M tape for sensitive skin (the tape is light blue) and have had no reaction to it.

Re: Has anyone here used Wellue Oximeters

I have the Wellvue oximeter ring and I love it. It seems accurate and the data transfer to the app on the phone or computer is easy. The only downside I've found is I've been unable to get the data integrated with Oscar. I'm on a Mac and I'm not very techy. Grumpyhere graciously showed me the step-b...

Re: general questions/therapy

The idea with the short hose cozy is to prevent the warm air from the heated hose from cooling off once it leaves the long heated hose due to the ambient room temps being cooler. The short hose cozy helps slow down the cooling off of the air once it leaves the heated hose. Pugsy: I bought a "Snuggl...
