AHI finally dropping
#1
Wow...the body is an amazing thing. With nasal pillows my AHI was seldom above .50 and never above 1.0. I switched to a nasal mask because of leaks and the nasal pillows only working for 2 or 3 weeks. So I got TrueBlue nasal mask. My first AHI was 3.50...on no! I started using it last Thursday and every day my AHI has been lower. This morning it was .9......yeah!! It must take the body a while to adapt from one mask to the next. My leaks with both masks have been nearly the same. And now, I get the best sleep ever. I hardly wake up at night, and if I have to adjust my mask when changing from one side to the other..I do not remember doing it. I sure am happy now!

Congrats kitley...

The right mask is really, really important. Each person is different as to what works for them. Glad you found the right one for you!
