... 276tmes in an 8 hr sleep :(. Very shocking to me indeed! Doc is starting my pressure between 9-15. Nit sure what its set at right now, I fo back for a f/u next month... however, I have my humidity set to 5 and still having a dry right side of my nose w/lots of dry boogies which I didn't have before starting on the machine... is this normal until I get my settings right or what? It only goes to a 6 for humidity ..I still wake up with bad headaches :(. I get tired again around 12pm and ready to go to bed at pm :(. Was hoping to feel energic by now... this is my 3rd wk on the machine... it doesn't take long to fall asleep once I get hooked up... can anybody give me some feedback please :)
Hi. . .. I've been using CPAP for about 3 years now. . .and have been very determined to make it work.. In this effort, I have tried many things. Hope these tips can be a help.
Perhaps the biggest plus that happened, is that a Respiratory Therapist suggested using BioTene . . . swishing it around for about 30 seconds in my mouth before putting the mask on.
My pressure is 18. . it's like a wind tunnel, so I know what you are talking about. . .
Also, I am using the Res-Med Quattro FX full face mask with a chin strap to keep my mouth closed during the night. . .
After using every mask that I could find, this is the best one for me. If you find a better one, please let me know.
My humidity is at 5 as well. in the mornings the water pot is empty or close to it. . and sometimes yet have dry lips. That is tolerable though. . .
Hope this is a help. If I can give you a hand with any other info. . . contact me
