Sleep2snore replied to Sue Butcher's discussion Best CPAP MACHINE FOR CAMPING?
"If you are hooking up to the mains it is not a problem if you are in the camper van. I used to use CPAP in a caravan hooked up to the mains all the time. However, if you are in a tent, that is a whole new ballgame."

Sleep2snore replied to Terry Foxon's discussion Sore nose irritated face
"Maybe you have a reaction to silicone? What type of Nasal Pillows did they give you and what sore of pressures are you on? CPAP or APAP? Do you have a humidifier? Nasal Pillows can irritate the inside of the nose until you get used to them being…"

Sleep2snore replied to Adam Humphreys's discussion DC power leads
"Some of these machines are 24VDC, such as some of the new Resmed machines, just to make life complicated. You need a 12Vdc to 24Vdc adaptor.  These are £100 + shocking cost for something so simple!"

Sleep2snore replied to David Vinnicombe's discussion Masks?
"I had quite a few, in fact I have the box my forst machine came in stuffed full of masks that I tried and failed to get on with. Nasal Pillows is the only ones I can get on with, though I do sometimes get a dry mouth.  I know what happens, it…"

Sleep2snore replied to David Vinnicombe's discussion Masks?
"Try putting the mask on when you lay down, the shape of the face changes when you lay down quite a bit. Failing that, try another mask, it sometimes takes a few before you get one that fits. There is a great need for a mask fitting service, one…"

Sleep2snore replied to David Vinnicombe's discussion Masks?
"I do believe you get Gel pads that go over the bridge of the nose http://www.hope2sleep.co.uk/liquicell-nasal-cpap-cushions.html these are reported to be good, though I have not tried them myself. The hybrid mask was not very popular though those…"

Sleep2snore replied to mack parsons's discussion CPAP trial
"Keep the mask seal spotless and your face clean of any oil and sweat. The other thing is a lot of people at the start have to mask far to tight, after a few days it starts to cause problems. Do you have a reaction to silicone? You can get mask…"

Sleep2snore replied to Iwan Davies's discussion Sleeping with CPAP on the sleeper (train)
"Well, I would have a small battery and have it charging and the CPAP running on 12vdc, that way when the train supplies some power it will top up the battery.  However, sometimes the power on trains flicker so I don't know how that will…"

Sleep2snore replied to George's discussion Sleep Apnea and DVLA
"Yes, the bridge of the nose can take a bit of a bashing, usually due to the mask being to tight. However, I was the same until I changed from a face mask to Nasal Pillows, Funny thing is that all the running up and down with a cut in the bridge of…"

Sleep2snore replied to Dinah Davies's discussion Newbie
"Write down any questions you may have and make a point of asking them. If you breath through your nose or mouth, remember to tell them if you know, it might just surprise you how many people don't know (included me) as I never thought about…"

Sleep2snore replied to Adam Humphreys's discussion DC power leads
"A thing to watch when using DC power leads is some machines use the centre pin being negative instead of positive as in most cars these days, so be careful when connecting DC power leads. Also car batteries are not the best to power a CPAP machine…"

Sleep2snore replied to George's discussion Sleep Apnea and DVLA
"Yep, if you don't drive, you don't get into an accident.  Let the other half do any driving if there is any to be done. If you don't drive you will not be stopped, so you won't get a find.  If you are not suffering from…"
