APAP versus CPAP

"After many (many!) years on CPAP, I can now open my mouth and even talk, whilst the CPAP is blowing air up my nose.  I guess it's trained my airways."

"Hi It may be worth a chat with your sleep clinic to see if they have a different mask you could try.  And Kath's mask liners may help (I hear, I've never had a problem).  Overtightening your mask can be a cause of leaks…"

"Those adrenaline shots when you stop breathing and your brain wakes you up can certainly send you dashing to the loo.  CPAP worked for me too (diagnosed 2008). Great night's sleep on night one, and only got better."
