6 weeks into my therapy and after sorting through the masks and mask sizes - I decided a couple of days ago to use the medium ResMed nasal pillows instead of the small one and BINGO - what do you know - a perfect seal for me.

Last night I registered AHI 0.00. Dancing

I am off to the sleep doctor today to borrow an Oximeter overnight to test my saturation levels to see whether therapy is really working. I-love-CPAP

Congratulations on your 0.0 AHI milestone, Diane1048, and good luck with your O2 saturation test.

Thanks JWR. And thanks to everyone who welcomed and encouraged me. I won't get discouraged if the numbers go up. I'm in this for the long haul. I understand there will be issues that I will have to deal with as they come up. When that time comes I will have questions for you guys, although, so far I have found the answers to all of my questions by searching the board. This board is an invaluable resource for anyone who has sleep issues.

I have a cold just starting so the next few days could be interesting.

On a side note I had my first compliance appointment with my sleep doctor. I was 94% compliant, had an average sleep time around 7 1/2hrs with an average AHI just over 1. I can't remember the last two numbers exactly. I don't have my copy of the results at hand just now and it too cold to go get it out of the car.

Welcome to the 0.00 club! I've had quite a few lately, with very little to no leaks. For me those are my issues I fight.
Fun isn't it, just the challenge of trying to get it makes me strive more for the "perfect" sleep. And since I've been here, I've NEVER slept better!!Grin
gonzo Thanks I hope it continues Sleep-well
