"Hi Kath, thanks for the reply! I've tried every size of (possibly) every available mask and they all leak.  Thanks for the link ... I'll take a look. I may well try one of the pad-a-cheeks as the reviews are pretty good and…"

Sorry Amelia - I almost missed your comment.  I know she'll be back here when she can or you can email her if it's easier at marion@asiliveandbreathe.co.uk

The forum can be confusing sometimes even for me

Hi Amelia

I've had a quick chat with Marion today - she's been rather poorly lately and has been in hospital twice.  Anyway, she saw the comment you'd left her, but in her tired state couldn't work out how to leave you one back, so can you add her as a friend and copy/paste it in there so she can reply easily?

Best Wishes

You're very welcome Amelia

Marion's been on hers too for around 15-20 years due to scoliosis. She's also with Papworth and this is her profile on here if you want to connect http://hope2sleepguide.co.uk/profile/MarionWhiting?xg_source=profiles_memberList  She's recently changed to a new machine and no sure if it's less bulky.

Good to hear you got the machine you needed Amelia, and we do have several people on the Nippy's - in fact one of our members, Marion from As I Live I + Breathe,  has used one for years + is the author of the book we sell 'CPAP + Ventilator Secrets.'

Thanks for that - I was just curious!

Hi Amelia, your profile say you use a NIPP|-2 machine - what is that?

At 17:39 on February 23, 2014, June Ostiadel said…

Hi Amelia, Welcome to Hope2Sleep. I am relatively new on here and I've already had lots of help from Kath and useful discussions with her and other members too. I'm not using the same equipment as you, however, I suppose we may still encounter similar problems (although I hope you have none)! See you around. June
