"very interesting video, I am due for my first yearly checkup with my sleep consultant on the 31st of this month, a bit nerve wracking as I have a HGV and PCV licence and although I do not depend on them for my job as I am a mechanic I would still be…"
"Hi Scott, I have a Phillips remstar system one with humidifier icl pipes masks & case instructions ect, it has 2684 blower hours has been regularly serviced & is due in July, I don't know what this is worth but I will accept any…"
Does anyone have a nasal pillow style mask & headgear they don't like or don't use? Mine vanished somewhere between Vancouver & Glasgow & I didn't notice till I got to Kirky. I have a spare one at home, but that's not helping me while I…See More
I'm hoping the next few nights will see me get my AHI down further, but i'm also keen not to put too much pressure on the situation.
I have to say i'm very impressed with the Hope2Sleep service so far, with regular updates…"
"Hi Andy. That's a good first night and sounding positive already. You may find your AHI comes down over the next few nights. Ideally we're looking for it to be up to 5 which is classed as 'normal.'
Your other goods will be…"
So last night was my first with my new CPAP machine (a Philips DreamStation with an Amara style mask), and got on surprisingly well. It took me a while to fall asleep and woke briefly a handful of times in the night but I would say it was very…See More
I was a mouth breather. I also slept flat on my stomach. I now sleep on my side, and with a nose-only mask rapidly learned to keep my trap shut at night :) The airway through my nose has significantly improved, which makes…"
"Thank you both for the welcome and the advice! I've read a lot about the humidifiers, so I suspect this will be one of the first things I will purchase.
I'm a mouth breather, so I'm hoping the hospital will provide a full mask when I…"
Sorry you've had a rough ride. How times change. My sleep study 10 years ago was just a finger pulse thing, and a camera. I had 86 events per hour. I guess we're all different, but the first night with my…"
Sorry you have had so little support from the NHS. We have an excellent sleep clinic here in Cleveland.
You won't have to surrender your driving licence but you will have to tell them if you are diagnosed with sleep apnea.
Once you are…"
I'm Andy and I am currently in the process of being diagnosed with OSA (I suspect), with an appointment at the Royal Stoke Uni Hospital to be fitted for a CPAP machine this coming Monday.
So far it has taken 12 months from…"
I just wanted to say thanks for sending us your surplus cushions and headgear. We've already given out one of the cushions to someone who was struggling with a split cushion. We really do appreciate this and so did the…"
"Thanks for your answer Kath. The app I have is Philips Dreamapper . It tells me minimum/maximam/ 90% pressure, My AHI and mask fit, Hours usage. I cant see anything about obstructive or centrals. Is my app out of date, or my machine?"
"I don't think those symptoms are specific to central sleep apnoea. Your app should tell you if those apnoeas are obstructive or centrals. It sometimes says 'CA.' Sometimes when people first wake it takes a…"
HiI was diagnosed with severe sleep apnoea Jan 2017 after hiring a device from Hope2sleep. Think I had this problem for around 10 years. I eventually got my cpap machine in August 2017. I have had a few ups and downs, and had my machine adjusted a…See More
