Hi Marion, I've just joined up and have been told by Kath you're also a long-term NIPPY user (or have been in the past) and have written a book about it. I've been using a NIPPY-2 for 16 years and am fine with it now, though I did have teething problems for some time, like most I'm sure, and keep a good supply of flannels in my bedside drawer as drooling has always been a big problem for me (hated the chin straps which always ended up soaked!). Kath mentioned that she thought you'd moved on to another machine and I'm curious to know which one, if you don't mind sharing? I visit Papworth every year and always plead with them to try me on another (lighter) machine, but none seem to "do the job" - I have combination apnoea after a stroke. I hate the weight and size of this one and am worrying about having to use public transport for me and my husband to get a few days away in the summer as he's just had to revoke his driving licence due to his own ill-health. Anyway, I do hope you're keeping well and would love to hear from you when you have a minute.

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
