First night on CPAP
Had my first night using the Dreamstation Auto CPAP, even though it is set at 11. I chose the Pilario Q mask and had what I would call a very good night. The machine isn't set to show me how many AHI's I had however. How do I find out this info and how have other users liked or disliked this mask.

Hi Newbie Granny,
You can request the Clinicians manual for your machine by email. See top of this page......CPAP Setup Manuals.

I have used the Pilaro Q and like it. It a very comfy mask, sometimes I switch it out with my P10 mask which is my favorite. Wink

Here is a link to reviews for the Pilaro Q

RE: First night on CPAP
Well done on getting through your first night with the CPAP. I recall my first few weeks were challenging, but its second nature now. Best of luck.
