"Hi Sharon, I can empathise! For 18 years I had no problem at all, then recently both my mask and machine became obsolete and I'm really struggling with the new equipment. I don't actually use a CPAP machine, I use a NIPPY-3…"
"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…"
"Hi all, just saying "hello" to fellow sleep apnoea sufferers. I'm 59 and have been using Nippy ventilators for the last 20 years for my combination apnoea caused by a brain haemorrhage. I'm treated at Papworth and…"
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?
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.'
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

Hi all,First of all, I would like to say what a great forum! I feel I might just be using this more often.A little background if I may?I was diagnosed late last year with OSA, with an AHI of 29 - so on the edge of severe OSA. If I'm honest, I wasn't…See More
"Hello Everyone I'm so glad I've found this wonderful informative site. Just been diagnosed recently with sleep apnea and finding it all very difficult. Just cannot get used to wearing the mask and take it off most…"
"I have never done that because the general consensus is that any addition to the humidifier chamber might corode the metal plate. However, I do get the odd cold and frequently suffer from blocked nose at least on one side and my answer which works…"
Does anyone have a nasal pillow style mask & headgear they don't like or don't use? Mine vanished somewhere between Vancouver & Glasgow & I didn't notice till I got to Kirky. I have a spare one at home, but that's not helping me while I…See More
I'm hoping the next few nights will see me get my AHI down further, but i'm also keen not to put too much pressure on the situation.
I have to say i'm very impressed with the Hope2Sleep service so far, with regular updates…"
"Hi Andy. That's a good first night and sounding positive already. You may find your AHI comes down over the next few nights. Ideally we're looking for it to be up to 5 which is classed as 'normal.'
Your other goods will be…"
