"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,my name is Ann and I stumbled across this site when looking to see where I could sell my CPAP machine but after reading some discussions, I now think that I may be better keeping it. I bought the Sleep Cube as it was fully automatic and as I…See More
Hi, I’ve been using the ResMed mirage Quattro since I was as diagnosed5 years ago. I’ve always hated it and found it so uncomfortable. Last week I bought myself a ResMed airfit F20 with quiet air and it’s the best thing ever. Nothing covering my…See More
I have been using a Cpap machine for 7 months. I too struggled with a full face mask (Simplus as issued by sleep clinic) but I changed from a large to medium size mask and it is a lot more comfortable and, because it fits better, I…"
"Using the Quatro Air is certainly working. My 95% pressures are still below 15 and also Im getting a much better sleep.
I think the reason its working is that the inlet is lower on the Quatro Air and is also directed downwards. This direction of…"
I am offering these never used masks (all in original packaging with User Manuals) for half the current retail price (check them at www.eu-pap.co.uk) , that is £50 or £60 including shipping within the U.K. …See More
"The best thing is to ask your clinic, they all appear to work their own way, also if you are going abroad it is worth checking if it is still covered. If not you might feel better if it were covered by insurance. Ask if your home…"
"You might need to try a good few masks before you fine one that works for and with you.
Once you find one they will stop making it next week if your luck is like mine!
Contact your clinic and check it is not to big or get another mask.
"I think it is a Humidifier not a Dehumidifier but that is an easy mistake to make.
The humidifier is controlled from inside the machine and as far as I know, the only repairer is ResMed UK.
Someone tell me otherwise!
The other option and maybe…"
"I've not heard of any repairers here in the UK. If it's the System One Remstar and it's under 2 years old it has a 2-year manufacturer's warranty. If you got it from your hospital they will change it for you."
I have a RemStarAuto M Series CPAP machine with a dehumidifier. The dehumidifier has stopped working. I have dome some testing and the humidifier works when hooked up to another Remstar so the fault is somewhere in the main device. I have tested the…See More
