Hi all
Just got my CPAP 5 days ago and am slowly working my way through all the pitfalls, little tweaks and whatnot that goes along with this hissing beast. I already found lots of very good info over here, so thanks for having me Smile

RE: Hi all
Roelof, welcome, it does get better with time, you learn to tweak things until you get them right. The benefits of CPAP far out weigh the disadvantage or discomforts we sometimes have to put up with, good luck.
