That's great to hear Dave.  I was just concerned that you might be getting leaks in the eyes, as it's a lot higher than it's meant to be.  No leak problem means it's working for you.  Hope you're feeling better since your start of treatment with lots more energy.  Come and introduce yourself at the Driffield meeting, as I might not recognise you without the mask LOL.

Thanks for the welcome, the mask looks big but I was told today at the lung function unit that I was doing great with it and the data showed I had an excellent mask fit and it got better over the week. It works and seals. Jobs a good one :-)

Hi again Dave.  Just wondered how you're get on with your mask, as it's looks to be a bit on the large size?

Hi Dave and welcome to the forum.  Great to see you'll be coming to the Driffield meeting and Hunmanby OSA Awareness + Fundraiser.  I'll look forward to meeting you there.  Any chance of you bringing one of those adorable piglets along? :-D

Sleep2snore replied to Dave Cheeseman's discussion New diagnosis!
"If you do buy one make sure you get a good one and ask if they will look after it if you do buy one. Some clinics will supply filters and check it every year after the warranty is out.  They might even repair and give you a loan machine. …"

Sleep2snore replied to Ruth Furniss's discussion New to cpap
"It is quite normal, some feel it interrupts sleep due to using the machine and mask, turning over can disturb you with the mask moving and leaks.  Give it a month or two and you should start to feel a lot better.  If not contact your Sleep…"

Sleep2snore replied to Mathura Dutt Kalauny's discussion Pressure difference between Resmed S8 Vs Breas Z1
"It may be just responding a bit quicker or just suits you better. It amazes me that anything so small can produce enough pressure to work in the first place. I wouldn't worry about unless you start to feel it is not keeping you feeling…"

"Hi Mathura and welcome to our forum.  With good results like that it shouldn't cause a concern, as it could just be that the Z1 algorithm suits you better.  Just like with masks suiting people better, so can machines, but mostly…"

Pressure difference between Resmed S8 Vs Breas Z1

I have been using RESMED in auto mode. The pressure used to settle around 11cmWG with AHI between 2 and 4. I have recently switched over BREAS Z1 in auto mode. The pressure has now changed to around 5.5 cmWG with AHI remaining below 5. What would be…See More
