Interesting perspective, Monkeyfeathers. Thank you. Insight like this is what I need, so I don't freak out if something changes along the way.
So just to be completely clear, all I need is the DreamStation, and the mask, correct? All hoses and jazz will come with both of them (the heating one for the DS and the one connected to the actual mask), correct? I'm getting excited already, can you tell? XD
KSMatthew, I am on Amazon because it is way cheaper than the ones listed on the supplier list. :/ Thank you though, that is definitely the way to go for newbs like me.
The hose comes with the machine and connects to the mask. Some masks will come with a short hose already attached, you connect the CPAP hose to the end of that .
Thank you for the info. The nasal mask worked pretty well for me in my sleep studies. I would like to try a full mask though. Basically, I want whatever will leak the least. Do you know of which mask leaks the least? I know it probably also has to do with a person's shape, size, of their head etc.

Thank you green wings, I didn't like the nasal pillows because of the pressure emitted. I believe that the dream station comes with heating tubing. Now I'm thinking bout getting the full mask just in case. I think I mean leaks from the mask, not sure. XD I know that I didn't need the strap when I did the nasal mask in the sleep studies.
