RE: Bleep Sleep Dreamport Mask
I copy below my post on another site night 2 tonight

So I have received my Bleep Dreamport’s and Dreamway shipped from the US

First impressions 


There is loads of bits to the Dreamway that all come apart :- 

The Tube/Swivel
Clear Plastic Vent
Silicone body
Clear plastic QR clips to connect to the Dreamports

I am not sure how resilient the Dreamway clips will be think I need to plan on getting a spare Dreamway and one for my working away machine I wonder how long i can keep using it until it needs replacing I wont be replacing it regularly as I am paying out of pocket

The dreamports have a lot of packaging

1xBox per 16 ports.

A years supply becomes a large box compared to the size of 24 nasal cushions (If you get a new one every two weeks) 

I was excited to try it out anyway so I made use of a couple of Dreamports for a dry run the first thing I did was take the whole thing apart then put it back together so I can see how it all works. It’s a bit fiddly and I find the attaching of the QR clips to the Dreamports very tricky even in front of the mirror (as everything is reversed) I had better success working blind, a couple of times I had leaking between the QR and the Dreamports when I moved the tube about.

On the whole I like it but it is a fiddly setup It’s weird as others have said with the whole contraption hanging off the end of your nose with everything plugged together its quiet I will do the filter over the vents thing to cut out the blast of vented air as its disconcerting when compared to the Resmed P10

First night report...


I love the Bleep...

I did use a Clone Resmed filter as a defuser of the blast of air from the vents.

Was really weird lying down the short tube is stiffer could do with being made a bit more flexible than the one on the P10, I had to work out the best way of dealing with the hose. I decided to push my existing CPAP hose between the pillow and the headboard with the Bleep hose running along the pillow to my nose that felt comfortable. It was not bad but definitely different having the hose stuck to my nose and felt a little strange when I have been used to the P10 for the last year.


Within 10 minutes I was asleep, I remember turning over in the night and closing my mouth as I mouth breath occasionally nothing new there as I don't like wearing a chin strap it disturbs my sleep more than the mouth breathing and a soft cervical collar gives me aerophagia. 


I awoke at around my normal time.


I can confirm the mask works with the high variable pressures associated with ASV Last night for a short period my max pressure was 21cm of H2O the leaks were much less than my P10 apart from when I opened my mouth all in all a great night, here is a graph showing the pressures and leaks

RE: Bleep Sleep Dreamport Mask
I use the bleep dreamport and have been for the past month or more. I’ve provided a review in the product review thread here. I switched from the p10 by resmed because it leaked, burned my nostrils and marked my face up pretty bad (all three of those things were equal trouble). In my opinion, it’s a great mask for all of those reasons, not to mention gets rid of the headgear altogether (stupid permanent wave in my hair). It hasn’t hurt or stung my face at all. Interesting note: on the forum you’re starting to see people cutting off the p10 tubing and swapping it out for the dreamport tube to get more flexibility. I just stretched mine out more and now it’s really floppy and loose. Best mask on the market, even at the price it demands. Oh, forgot to mention, my cpap  pressure has dropped by two with the same ahi as before...and I’m not the only one. I guess no leak can do that! Who knew...

RE: Bleep Sleep Dreamport Mask
Just as a follow up I grafted a P10 hose to the Bleep mask it solved my issues with the hose pulling on my nose

I did have a bad night last night with leaks I had got a bit slapdash with the positioning of the Dreamports on my nose I did not have the ports central in my nostrils so I got some leaking where my nose meets my top lip. The leaks were not huge but very annoying so I had to use another set of Dreamports after about an hour

RE: Bleep Sleep Dreamport Mask
I clean my skin with a liberal amount of Makers Mark now (keep my mouth open to catch the excess) lol, then use cut down dreamports with the ends pointed out at my ears. That seems to help with connecting. Had a leak the first night because I didn’t clean my nose. Didn’t read the instructions haha, but watched Jason’s video at free cpap advice and saw the inventor applying them toward the outside more. Haven’t had any leaking or problems lining them up since that night.

Bleep is the company name. Bleep, LLC is what’s listed on the website at the bottom of the page. DreamPort is the name of the mask. Hey, bleep rhymes with sleep! Maybe that’s it. Or maybe the owner curses like a sailor.

RE: Bleep Sleep Dreamport Mask
We've been using them for about a month now.
Very happy with them. Wife always had problems with the headgear slipping up/down on her hair.
We're trying to get Apria to start stocking them so we don't have to pay out of pocket. Feeding two people is $160/mo.
