RE: Accidentally fell asleep with mask on, but didn't turn CPAP machine on
Also just to clarify, I made it sound like I slept a full 8-hours without my machine on, it was probably about 2-hours max. I remember having a dream, waking up from the dream and realizing I didn't have my machine on. It actually happened to me before (kinda). I rolled over once and my machine fell off the box I have it sitting on and the power adapter unplugged. I think that was only for a few minutes though.

Thank you all for the replies and calming my nerves. I updated my profile to the machine I have and I will download that app.

Is it possible to put your machine on a nightstand/table near your bed? I put mine on some type of drawer liner so that it won't slip off... of course after it fell one time. That way, no unplugging of the adapter and since I did that, no rain out either. If you can do that I think you'll have happier sleeps. Coffee

Well I have it on a metal box. It's like a gig box for musicians. Not a cardboard box, so it doesn't slip off. It was just I pulled it off with the hose. Totally my own doing! lol

Welcome to the club. There are those that have and those that will. I have done it a couple of times - usually if I get up in the middle of the night and then crawl back into bed. No big deal, just a blank spot on the recording and a night of poor sleep.

Thank you Trish! CPAP is definitely helping me (when I use it right, lol). I've also changed my diet once I was diagnosed with apnea. I've lost around 75-pounds in a year. Just trying to get healthy and enjoy life.

I've gone to the bathroom and forgot to hose back up when I got into bed. I empathize.

Hi Jneditch,
It's great to hear that CPAP is helping you and don't beat up on yourself for not turning your machine on last night.
CONGRATULATIONS! on your weight loss, keep up the good work and enjoy life.

Thanks. Half way there. We need the model in addition to PR System one.

It says something like REMStar Auto near the LCD display. Tell us what that says.

Also take out the water tank, then turn the CPAP machine over and look for something like REF 560P on the label on the bottom. Tell us what that says.
