Hello David

When I first started with CPAP over 10 years ago, I gave up as I couldn't get on with the face mask.   Then a couple of years later I read about Resmed nasal pillows, tried them instead of the full mask and the difference was amazing.   I have used my machine every night since without any problem.   If you haven't already tried nasal pillows get them from your clinic or buy from Resmed - and you might find that you can happily tolerate your machine.   It is worth a try as anyone with OSA will tell you how important it is to find a way to treat it.

Regards

Yvonne

I've 'hit a wall' can any body help me?

I was diagnosed with severe OSA in November and I have been using a Philips Respironics CPAP machine and full face mask from early December up to now (about 5 months). My HPI's went down from 44 to about  14 in about 10 weeks and I was feeling much…See More

Sleep2snore replied to Chris Vesey's discussion Medistron batteries
"I wish the ResMed was 12Vdc, it would make life a lot easier. I wonder why they need 24Vdc anyway? My APAP is not mine to and see why it has to be 24Vdc! I don't think the clinic might be to impressed if I opened it for a look. "

"It is a machine and if you have COPD and suffer from hay fever and asthma it will cause problems that you will have to find a work around for.  Looks like you have already found one that helps. It is very much a case of experiment and see. "
