CPAP Machine Choices - read this before you accept a new machine

Astraith, post a SleepyHead chart, and we can go over it. The terms we use like obstructive, central or mixed apnea are defined in the Wiki Definitions. http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...efinitions  And lots more information in the Beginner's Guide to Sleepyhead. http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...SleepyHead .  Mixed apnea is often called complex apnrea and is someone that has both central and obstructive apnea.  Central and complex apnea often require an adaptive servo ventilator (ASV) for treatment rather than CPAP.

Hello Cook, I'll have my VA "consult" appointment in two days. I believe that will result in a machine and peripherals. Sounds like they took good care of you with regard to the machine. I'm worried about your difficulty in getting the necessary supplies. Is that an inherent problem when using the VA? I ask only because I also have good private insurance and could go that route if I need to.

I can only speak to the VA at Viera/Lake Nona and theyhave been wonderful in getting a machine and supplies.

Good Luck.
