"Hi Sleep2snore, Chris, Kath,
Great to hear you are pushing the boundaries of off-the-grid CPAP use.
I have used my Resmed Airsense 10 with 12V DC power. I purchased the Resmed Airsense 10 DC converter. It is quite pricey at £70 and is…"
"My first 2 weeks starting CPAP were the hardest, but my sleeping started to improve as I adjusted.
Hang it there...you should find it gets better.
For me wearing the mask is now rouyine.
Good luck, billysleep"
I have been using an Airsense 10 for the last 6 months. In the early days I had a similar problem, the higher pressure would both initiate a leak and also wake me up. In the early days I was adjusting the mask tension a lot more and…"
I am also looking for some portable power for camping and sailing trips. The vendor provided batteries do seem expensive. I am thinking to try the Li-Ion portable batteries on the British Snoring site which are £269 and are supposed…"

"Well I turned EPR on and tried the mask again last night, but again I stopped breathing which woke me up gasping for air. It seems to happen just after or not long after I drop off, after the third time I changed mask back to original one and went…"
"Sorry for the delay as I managed to get myself locked out of the forum lol. Please don't be messing with the pressures and contact your hospital if your wife has noticed you looking gray. Perhaps go back to a different mask until…"
"There is no link between the 95% pressure and the AHI.
A few nights back my 95% pressure was 19.46 with AHI 0
Last night my 95% pressure was 17 with AHI 0
When the AHI does increase its normally hypopnoea,s
So why does the APAP want to increase the…"
"Hi thanks for the reply’s I will look at this as the wife said I was gray yesterday and after looking at the instructions again it says about the symptoms I had to not use and talk to my clinic so a bit worried. I used my other full face mask…"
"I would say if you have the Ramp Start enabled to make it start at a higher pressure. Check also if you are using a big enough cushion as this is a common mistake. Same with Nasal Pillows, people tend too use a size to small. Check you…"
"That is not impossible, even dust and mites can cause problems, even the mites that are so tiny you can't see them and they live on your body. However, only you yourself can work out if certain food make things worse. It could be…"
"I am now finding that the pressure the APAP runs at during the night is dependent on what I have eaten that evening.
I have found that if I have bolied rice rather than chips with the evening meal then my 95% pressure can reduce by as much as…"
"Hi Lee. Sorry to hear you're still having problems with masks. It's not normal to feel there's not enough air with the DreamWear as that mask usually give people the opposite sensation of feeling more pressure than…"
Hi all I’m having trouble with my DreamWear full face mask,I’ve spent a long time getting the fit right but I have two problems 1. The bit between my nostrils somehow hurts it’s bearable but I would sooner not have the pain and 2. I have to breathe…See More
