DS2 possible issues

DS2 possible issues
I received a replacement cpap in March, a Dream Station 2.  The last few weeks I have had really poor sleep and my eyes are very puffy each morning.  AHI is good but I feel lousy, tired all the time.   Could this be from the machine?

RE: DS2 possible issues
Do you notice any air leaking from the mask and possibly blowing in your eyes?

Also, check your humidity level. Too high of humidity could cause a host of issues.

Could you be having an allergic reaction to something else outside of Cpap use?

Also, check whether it has the proper pressure settings. We’ve seen multiple people receive DS2s with default settings rather than their current prescription.

Thanks for your help. Eye puffiness is improved. I removed some possible allergens from bedroom. Reduced humidity. Paying attention to leaks. This is definitely a work in progress.
