Is this the time to try my untried masks?
Hi Y'all,
I've got a cold/and some unrelated pain flaring. I'd avoided wearing my two new masks I ordered from Supplier no. 1 because I was having a few good ahi's (under 5.0's in a row) and I didn't want to throw any monkey wrenches.

Well due to the above misery, I've been hitting 9.0-nearly 10.0's so shall I go ahead and try the new masks? I have to send them back soon if I am not going to keep them and I figure I should try a real sleep with them?

THoughts?

Susan The Snuffle Hen.

Well Snufflufagus,

You are going to need to try them soon and you may be forced to make some judgement calls due to the timing. I would start trying them now or you could send them to me and I will try them for you. HuhBig Grin

Best Regards,

PaytonA

RE: Is this the time to try my untried masks?
If I was in the same situation, I would fix one problem at a time. I would first fix my snuffles. Then worry about the new masks. I will return the masks now to the DME. And get the refund. And then later on, when I have fixed other problems, I will rebuy those masks, one at a time, and try them.

My 2 cents. YMMV.

Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.
