Can CPAP help my headaches?

RE: Can CPAP help my headaches?
Thanks SleepRider!

They are also sending me a heated tube.  Is that better than the unheated ones?

The DME says that the heat is to prevent condensation in the tube, not to produce
heated air to inhale.  - I guess that's good, right?

RE: Can CPAP help my headaches?
Yes ResMed is the winner IMO. Besides better algorithm, note that a bit of info my RT made mention. ResMed's vs whichever, Respironics or others, if you like the breathing pattern of ResMed this applies from CPAP to NIV. It will feel similar. Same for Respironics, it will fell familiar from CPAP to NIV. Just something to note along with better therapy, it will feel familiar. Might be just the thing to help with success.

PS correct on heated hose. It's useful to combat rainout, a form of condensation in the hose because of use of the humidifier.

Your mask, humidifier chamber and tubing will work with the ASV too. The heated tube works just as your doctor described. I cover mine with a fleece cover to make it soft and quiet. Much more comfortable, even if the tube is across your face for some reason.

Ok.  My ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV just arrived.  How can I tell if it's really new as the 
DME assured me?
