"In one way John, bearing in mind your AHI was 45 on diagnosis, 9 is very good, although if you're still experiencing the brain fog and tiredness etc., it's a pity the clinic haven't managed to get it lower despite them trying. …"
I can't speak for the Resmed Mirage FX, but we've sold the Wisp for years at the charity and our site has all 5 star reviews. The DreamWisp is the newest version with the difference being the hose comes out of the top…"

When the GP first explained sleep apnea as being asleep and your throat closing then you stop…"
"Hi again Frankam and was glad to be of help and reassurance. I was speaking with one of your nurses earlier and told her of your great overnight success, and she was really pleased. The nurses aren't here on the forum but they are…"
