Hello Everybody!
Hello,

I was just told of my apnea (although I already had a good idea it was there but didn't want it confirmed)

It's good to see an active forum for this area and that I'm not the only "Hose Head"

You must excuse any questions of mine that maybe simplistic. I will try the search function first though.

Cheers
Thanks

RE: Hello Everybody!
welcome to the forum .... what S9 are you using?
have you looked at the S9 setup
http://www.apneaboard.com/resmed-s9-cpap-setup

the S9 manual available via Email ... scroll down to section three
http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual

as you using Resscan software ... here is the report interpretation guide
http://www.apneaboard.com/ResScan_Interpretation-Guide.pdf

you can find masks and other stuff much cheaper from US
I've used supplier#2 and supplier# 10 .... both good and ship down under (some don,t)

Hose head. LOL Laugh-a-lot Makes me think back to Halloween. I was going to wear my mask with the hose attached. Go as an elephant. My wife suggested people would see me as stranger than I really am so I decided not to. Questions, questions. As everyone here has learned, there can never be too many questions. We all had a start sometime.

RE: Hello Everybody!
Thanks everybody for the warm welcome.

After looking at the Resmed mask prices in the USA & Australia it seems it isn't just my auto parts that will be coming from the USA.

Cheers
