"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…"

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

Kath Hope replied to Ruth Furniss's discussion Blocked nose
"Definitely nothing inside the humidifier chamber except plain water.  Olbas Oil on a tissue or Vicks as Eric states, and there's a more detailed article on the website here https://www.hope2sleep.co.uk/blog/cpap-masks-with-a-cold.html"

"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…"
