Hello to everyone reading this! I was diagnosed with sleep apnea (CSA & OSA) in late 2014. It came as a huge shock to me considering I am pretty healthy. So I received my apnea machine end of November 2014. Its been nothing but problems since. The woman from the company when she dropped it off did no explaining to me of how to use it. I've since spoken with my doctor and have had another sleep test done. My question for you is about my settings with the hose and humidifier. Last winter I couldn't use my cpap due to a deviated septum surgery.
So I usually go to sleep with my heat set anywhere between. 62-64 degrees. Currently I have my humidity set at 5 and my tubing set at 64. I am not sure if these are the correct settings for the winter. My doctor had told me back in September to raise my humidity to 7 so I listened to him and ended up with the gurgling issus due to it being to high and the room temperature being cooler. It was lovely having water shoot into the back of my throat! Haha. So in your opinion what would you suggest I set the tube and humidity at? Also while I am posting I am now about 2 months into being a full face wearer & I LOVE it , but for the past few weeks I am left with a permanent dark pink mark on certain areas of my face. Especially the bridge of my nose (which causes physical pain) and on my red lower cheek area. Its embarrassing!!! Any advice on that would be appreciated as well. Thank you all so much. Have a good day.
