"Either they have not set your minimum pressure and the machine is slowly finding the level you require, or they have not set up a minimum pressure. I don't know how or if they set your machine up, but my mate got one and under Covid rules they…"

"He really needs the attitude that if he is given a machine or a trial "This is going to work for came hell or high water!"  though it is not easy getting started or used to a CPAP machine.  Sometimes you just need to keep…"

"This came to a head a couple of weeks back where, even while just sat in front of my computer at home, I felt like I wasn't breathing properly, even with none of this going on - I was having to manually breathe. I got tested for covid that day…"

Sleep2snore replied to thatbloke's discussion Having major trouble and getting very frustrated trying to use CPAP machine - help?
"With the last point in mind, because I never feel like I'm breathing "normally" with the mask on, I then end up taking over and "manually" trying to concentrate on my breathing with it on. This, of course, means that…"

Sleep2snore replied to thatbloke's discussion Having major trouble and getting very frustrated trying to use CPAP machine - help?
"Note that this feeling of not breathing properly also happens even if I put the mask on for a bit during the day, just to try to get used to it. I simply do not ever feel like I'm taking in enough air when I breathe in, and therefore have to…"

"While having the mask on, I don't ever feel like when I'm breathing in, that I'm actually taking in enough air. It feels like the mask pushes my lower jaw and my lips into a certain position that then prevents my normal breathing from…"

Sleep2snore replied to Amanda S's discussion Which is the best sleep apnoea test?
"The best test is one you need help to get all connected up to, it can be done at home but is very expensive to hire the machine.  Best to do a study over two nights, though it costs to do this.  Kath I think does sleep studies, but then…"

Maxine Chaplain replied to Maxine Chaplain's discussion Using humidifier
"Thanks so much for the advice. I now have my new one and will try the water/vinegar regime. Yes, we do live in a very hard water area which doesn't help so I'll give the distilled water a go too. Many thanks "

Kath Hope replied to Maxine Chaplain's discussion Using humidifier
"Hi Maxine That advice is correct, except you really want to be giving a deeper clean once a week with a more natural disinfecting regime.  The manufacturers recommend doing this with 1 part of white vinegar to 5 parts water and leaving to…"
