Felt like I was sleeping with a military gas mask on and didn’t like that claustrophobic sensation
My first few nights were terrible with F20. Now, though, I have got used to it.

At the time, when I began the rental, Res Med India did not have F30. Now, they do have AirFit™ F30 Sys-APAC. Is that the version you have been using?

F30 Sys-APAC

That listing info must be for India but I looked it up and it looks identical to what I use, so yes that’s it

Re: mouth breathing:
I came across tutorials and videos about taping your mouth closed. I've been using medical tape and it's helped a great deal. I ordered some transparent tape marketed for mouthbreathing sleeping.

Thanks for these advices and I apologise for the belated reply. I had to reset my laptop and lost a lot of user info.

I wanted to know whether there is any way in which one can assess the extent of noise from the CPAP and whether CPAP is working well from OSCAR Data. The noise from the Airsense 10 Autoset machine has started affecting for the last three weeks or so and i am waking up a few times because of the noise.

But the thing is that I am autistic and some of my sensory issues have worsened in the last month (possibly due to a change of job and city) and I have become more sensitive than normal to sound. I thought my refrigerator was noisy but a friend came and checked that it was not. My heightened sensitivity had made it intolerable. I do not know whether it is the same with the CPAP. Initially, I was not too perturbed but my AHI has jumped from being between 1-2 to around 4-5 for the last few days and I have been very sleepy in the afternoon these days, much like how it used to be before the use of CPAP.

So, is there way to verify whether my CPAP is working fine from the OSCAR Data or whether the noise is just a manifestation of my heightened sensitivity to sound.

thanks

Have you tried a sound machine with white noise to mask the sounds?

New to CPAP in Sept. 2021. N20 and MAD caused dental pain. Currently trying the Resmed Airfit F20 (medium). ResMed Air 10 Autoset for her machine.

Minor suggestion on posting etiquette:

Please don't quote the post immediately above your current reply.

Unnecessary quoting makes the topic cluttered and harder to read.

Thank you so much.

Good machines don't wake you with noise, so if yours is doing that, go back to wherever you got it and get a replacement. Unfortunately someone else did that many times but the batch was apparently bad and all of them had the noise!

Good luck.
