It will be beneficial to you, if you can, to download sleepy head and ResScan software and monitor your data.

Happy sleeping!

RE: First night
Hang tough, and remember, the sooner you keep the mask on all night, the sooner you will get used to it.

Start telling yourself you can't breathe in bed without it, and other stuff like that to brain-wash yourself.

RE: First night
Well, the first night wasn't too bad. It took me a little longer to fall asleep than usual, but not too long. I noticed when I rolled to my side that it would leak a little around the edge of the mask. Not enough to hurt anything, and not really bothersome, but I would end up going to my back again to stop the leak. I woke up a couple times during the night and I couldn't tell the machine was even on until I'd change my breathing a little and feel the pressure. I don't think it will take me long to get used to it. I woke up about 3 hours after I went to sleep and thought real hard about taking the mask and throwing it on the floor, but I didn't. I did notice that when the alarm clock is across the room, your wife will get a little irritated waiting on you to get unhooked to turn the alarm off when you wake up an hour before she does....
I noticed 3 things I have questions about.

1) My throat was a little sore when I woke up, and has continued to be not for about 2 1/2 hours, should I turn up the humidifier?
2) It seemed that over 7-7 1/2 hours of sleep, there was only a trace amount of water missing from the humidifier, is this common?
3) I noticed I had a stale taste in my mouth when I woke up, is this normal? I think I am normally a nose breather, but resort to mouth breathing automatically when I seem to not get enough air.

I had my humidifier set on 2, this is where the lady who set me up with the machine said she usually started everyone off at.
Other info- S9 Elite, H5 Humidifier, Slim Hose, Mirage FX Nasal Mask. Arkansas is known for high humidity so this could be a factor. Pressure of 10, 20 min ramp starting at 8.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Your throat being sore could be that you opened your mouth during sleep. Have you tried a full face mask? Have you tried a chin strap?

Just curious why they didn't give you an Auto Set.

I am sure someone else here will be able to answer your other questions for you.
