Is this the time to try my untried masks?
#1
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?

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

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.
