"It's a shame nothing can be done about your polyps and septum, which is no doubt the cause of your issues.  It too hate the Oracle, but there are a lot of people who use it very successfully - just not you or I lol."

Edam replied to Edam's discussion Flexifit 432
"I have been seen by  ENT consultants who have diagnosed nasal polyps and a deviated septum. They have considered that surgery is too risky and as one of them said I can still breath through my mouth."
Monday
Kath Hope replied to Edam's discussion Flexifit 432
"I honestly don't know Edam, as people usually ask us how to keep their mouths closed rather than open.  It sounds like you need an ENT referral due to severe nasal issues.  I had to have some surgery to breathe better in the masks."

Edam replied to Edam's discussion Flexifit 432
"I tried the Simplus last night but the 95% pressure went up to 19.5 from 14 on previous nights using the 432. What can I use to keep my mouth open when using a Full Face Mask???"

Edam replied to Edam's discussion Flexifit 432
"I bought the 432 from you and would have gone to the Forma if you sold it at the time. The under chin design of the Flexifit/ Forma range of masks allow my mouth to stay open. With  nearly every other full face mask my mouth would close during…"

Kath Hope replied to John Garbutt's discussion How long to get machine
"Welcome John and good to hear you've been diagnosed now and especially with your sleep apnoea being severe.  It really depends on each sleep clinic as to how long you'll have to wait for your CPAP - some give them out immediately,…"
Saturday
Kath Hope replied to Edam's discussion Flexifit 432
"Hi Edam.  Good to hear the new mask is helping, and those F & P FlexiFit 431, 432 and Forma's are still a favourite for a lot of people due to the chin support.  (In fact we added the Forma to the charity's website yesterday…"
