"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…"

Sore nose irritated face

Hi all,I am in quandary as I have used every type of mask the clinic can offer me. I was recently given a nose pillow mask after I told them about the irritation caused by my full face mask and was told after that there was nothing the could give me. By the way I have complex apnea which means it can be both central apnea and obstructive apnea. With the pillow mask I woke up in such pain and burning sensation I was in real pain, with the face mask I get skin irritation (no marks or red botches)…See More

Kath Hope replied to Linda's discussion Do charities take new surplus CAPD masks?
"I know exactly what you mean Linda. It's good when people purchase them when unsure of their size, but wasteful otherwise.  You can send them to our Hope2Sleep Charity who run this forum and address is on the contact…"

Do charities take new surplus CAPD masks?

when I request a replacement medium Phillips Respironics mask from my NHS provider I am given a pack that includes all size masks and new headgear.  I have queried this and have been advised this is how they are supplied.  It seems a terrible waste.…See More

Sleep2snore replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"Don't rule out a fault with the machine or restricted airflow. I would also not rule out that you might be one of the few that needs a different machine. In any case, it should not go to 20 and sit there, I would get it checked or replaced. If…"

Sleep2snore replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"That is hard to believe.  A pressure of 20 is quite high and very few require that amount of pressure. 1 ltr/min is nothing, the machine should cope with that without any problems at all. A lot of people get mixed up with pressure and…"

"I thought I had this problem solved but it got stuck at 20 again last night. My 95% pressure was 19, AHI  0.1 and leak 1 l/min. Sleepyhead shows that it was stuck at 20 for approx 30 mins ."

Sleep2snore replied to Ruth Furniss's discussion Cold air
"Don't know what machine ou have, but a heated hose can help a lot. You can get them as a stand alone but it is not ideal. If your machine has the facility for a heated hose it might be worth the investment. Heating the room will help."

Sleep2snore replied to Renee Rowlands's discussion Recommendation please for Oximeter purchase.
"There are plenty on the market, but one thing I would make sure it did was to store the data for printing or downloading. There are plenty that say they do this and don't, so be aware of buying off Amazon or Ebay."

Kath Hope replied to Ruth Furniss's discussion Cold air
"Like you say yourself Ruth, warming up the bedroom will help, but also if you don't have a heated humidifier then that would help - as will covering the tube with a Hose Cover."
