CPAP Weirdness
#1
Grin 
Per normal pre-bed procedure I refilled the humidifier, tripped the pre-heater, took my pills, nasal sprayed, brushed my teeth and punched the radio to my favorite classical music station. Climbing into bed, I donned the mask and grabbed my nook. I attempted to get comfortable and do a little reading; but it became clear that something was wrong.

There was no air coming out of the nasal pillows no matter how hard I breathed. Back-tracking led me to discover that I'd failed to properly close the humidifier cover - what a relief, as I envisioned having to dig out the old travel machine. Or, worse having to send the S9 in for repairs.

You should get out your label maker and put a label near the start button: Humidifier Lid Closed?
I have one that says: O2 ON?

I discovered a disadvantage to my FFM. If I remove, it's nearly impossible to get back on while lying on my side.

Sometimes, what happens to me is that I think I closed the lid all the way, get in bed after masking up, only to hear this loud rushing sound coming from the machine.

I sometimes forget to hose back up. I should put a picture of Noo Noo on my nightstand. Smile http://cyberneticzoo.com/wp-content/uplo...leamer.jpg
