I had an appnt due 5th May for results of NHS sleep study and to get the machine and mask. Since most appointments are being cancelled I've paid for a private sleep study despite having an NHS one several weeks ago.
I'll get the results within 7 to 10 days and I'd hope to buy a CPAP but I'm a carbon dioxide retainer and had BIBAP in hospital.
I'll see what the results say and hope to get advice on the best machine to buy, very quiet, automatic and I've very thin skin due to lifetime oral steroids for severe asthma on my face so full face mask I'd prefer with covers to protect my skin.
I hope to get help and suggestions from here on the machines when I get the results which were 30 uhi I recall but that's all I recall.
I'm willing to pay for an expensive machine and mask as long as it is suitable for my needs when I get the privately done sleep study.
I've asked several times my consultant secretary for my NHS Result but no answer or email b or letter.
Ask i know its my sats drop into 60s through the night and i use oxygen to bring it to 88 to 92%..I've received the text to say I'm on the GOV list and to remain inside for 12 weeks.
