I was diagnosed with severe apnea about 3 months ago. Went to DME provider with script in hand. Came home with ResMed Airsense 10 Autoset, Respironics Nasal Wisp, Heated tube, etc.
I had trouble initially due to my mouth opening during the night. Back to the DME. Came home with ResMed AirFit F10.
This was a little better, but as pressure increased, leakage was highly disturbing to sleep. Gotta love waking up to "farting" noises around your eyes 5 times a night. Couldn't stick with that. Took a few days off to think/research.
Went back to Wisp adding Chin-up adhesive strips to keep my jaw closed. Things went much better as evidenced by much lower AHIs, less large leaks.
Over time, despite washing regularly, and replacing monthly, the Wisp has been leaking into my eyes. Very disturbing.
Went BACK to DME. Came home with ResMed Swift FX Nano nasal mask. TOTAL DISASTER! Cannot get that thing to NOT leak even sitting up.
Every time I need to try something different, it takes days to get in touch with DME (Apria) because their branches hide behind a phone center, then more days to get an appointment, then hours driving to/from the appt and keeping the appt.
I just don't know what to try and I'm ready to quit.
My pressure generally runs between 9 and 14 with the 90% being 13.2 over last 30 days. The nasal masks leakage (both Wisp and even more Swift FX) seem to be at the bridge of the nose.
ANY SUGGESTIONS? Thanks so much for reading this far, if you have.
