Back on the machine...well sorta

Back on the machine...well sorta
So, after some 8 weeks of fighting *constant* breathing problems, I have subdued my lungs to the point (thank-you Big Pharma) to the point where I can once again attempt to slay the CPAP dragon.

I finally solved the seal issues on the Philips Amara View mask...my leaks have been consistently at 0 according to the machine....

The first night was promising 3.3 hours on, with 1.8 AHI ...  but I woke up and I could not get back to sleep with it on.

The next two nights were head congestion fails....

Gonna try again tonight.

So far...pretty much the same level of success as before....not more than a couple hours at the start of the night....then I wake up feeling like the damn machine is trying to suffocate me.

Last night was 59 minutes....

Doubtfire61, either your pressures are to low or you have to low humidity, at a guess.
As Walla Walla says, post a few data charts from Sleepyhead.
Let the dog see the rabbit.
I am NOT a doctor.  I try to help, but do not take what I say as medical advice.


Every journey, however large or small starts with the first step.

Sleep-well

I'm going to put the data today and hopefully can post my meager results tonight.

I currently operate with humidity off, but I put either cold water or ice cubes in the tank....

Note that the coughing is throughout the day...air quality vs. allergy issues
