RE: Mask panic after long term use
On checking the clinical manual (thanks for the download guys)I found that changing the calibration is only marginally more difficult process than adjusting the set pressure, provided you have the right equipment, which I do.
So last night I performed of the recalibration. Kept the pressure settings as originally prescribed, Took 2mg of benzo, and slept for seven hours with the mask in place

Is it just me or does this board have a lot of engineer and tech types?
Many of us seem quite comfortable with tech stuff.

Yep yep. Noticed that straight away. Made me wonder if the genes that affect sleep apnea also give you an engineering edge. lol
