I've been using a Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset for Her for a little over a month. This is the only machine I've ever had. I have a Wisp mask and it's got a quick release feature, which is cool. When I get up to go to the bathroom or (only rarely) see to one of my 21 month old twins, I usually just unclip the mask and wear the head gear. I lay the hose down on the bed, blasting away. It just seems like this is going to shorten the motor life and the machine itself registers this initially as an unexplained apnea and then a large leak.
So, am I supposed to turn it off and then turn it back on? Or is this the proper way to leave bed at night?
(on a side note, our electricity went out and was out for 5 hours early Sunday morning) I only got to use the cpap for 3 hours. I felt like death warmed over all day yesterday (and woke my whole house up with my snoring - since there was no other sound in the neighborhood!!)... I'm so grateful for this machine. I think I'm an addict!)
Yeah, I just push the off button and take off my nasal pillows.
