[Equipment] REMstar Ultra Fine Filter and A Fib
My REMstar Plus is 16 months old and works well. However, I have become aware of myself waking up after about 4 to 5 hours of sleep and having to lift my nasal mask up a few times during sleep almost like trying to get a good breath of air. My hose is not tangled. I have just recognized that this has been going on for quite some time. I change the ultra fine filter monthly or when dirty and wash the foam filter often. I have taken the ultra fine filter out for now and the machine seems to "breathe" better. I was just diagnosed with A Fib and sleep apnea could be one of the causes. Any ideas as to what may be going on with machine?

Note: If you are not using the white disposable filter, simply insert the gray foam filter into the filter are
