Welcome to the Hope2SleepGuide Forum, which is a service run by the Hope2Sleep Charity founded by Kath Hope with a marvellous team of trustees and volunteers.
Kath herself has severe sleep apnoea and hypoventilation/hypercapnia, and has used CPAP for several years and is now on non-invasive ventilation. Our trustees and volunteers are all either sufferers of sleep disordered breathing or clinicians/medics working in this field, and most importantly, we are all passionate in supporting (with empathy) others and raising awareness to help people live healthier and more energised lives.
Whilst we do not give medical advice, more often than not, with support, tips and knowledge, people can overcome any problems experienced with our therapy, and there is a whole page dedicated to this on the website http://www.hope2sleep.co.uk/tips-for-problems-sleeping-with-cpap-or...
Please come and join us, and don’t feel obligated to use your ‘real’ name if you prefer to remain anonymous as this is a public forum. Don’t be shy in posting and sharing, as we’re all in this together and to help each other.
Best Wishes for good sleep!
Great.....will look forward to hearing from you Jonny. This is where we put patient stories http://www.hope2sleep.co.uk/patient-stories.html
My pleasure, and nothing but the truth - what you do is wonderful!
I also tried the Amara Gel mask which was very good in helping with symptoms, but did give me many red marks on my face and a rather painful point on the bridge of my nose - all, obviously, alleviated with the View mask.
I would of course love to be one of your Patient Stories, I will get in touch on your email as suggested.
