I have for the last years felt me very tired the whole day and especially in the evenings. In front of the TV I almost fell in sleep after some minutes.
I visited my lokal doctor and she sent me to hospital for testing.
I went home with a box to put on my stomace and some connections to sensors on my body. There was also an oxymeter connected to the box.
In the morning I went back to the hospital and they looked for the recordings.
I had an AHI of 20 and oxymeter showing 73%, so I was ordered a CPAP machine.
I got the Philips Respironics and an Activa LT mask number " S "
I must say I wasn't comfortable with this mask. I adjusted it after descriptions in the manual, with place for my fingers unter the headgear. As I am often sleeping on my stomace, and turning from one side to the other, ( like a propeller ), I have problems with my mask and of course leaks. A big problem was also the tube around my neck.
I went back to my hospital after two weeks and got a Swift LT which I found much better, especially the placing of the airtube over my head.
But reading the SD Card I found not so good results as with the Activa LT.
I'm now back sleeping with my Activa LT. But a big problem is, as I'm so much moving in bed, that the Activa LT is pressing me so hard under my nose and my teeth so the last night I stopped my PR machine.
Tonight again I will change to the Swift LT.
Now I'm thinking of testing a Quattro FFM.
I don't know if I can have the same size of mask ( the "S" ) as my Activa is?
Mostly now I have an AHI lower than 5. The lowest during 34 days is 0.28 with the Activa mask.
Someone who can advise me?
