I have used my Resmed S9 autoset for 4 years, with little trouble. I usually have 1 to 2 apnea events per hour. Tonight I put on the mask and before long, less than a minute, I felt like I couldn't breathe. I can't find anything apparently wrong with the machine and am fine when I took off the mask. The machine reads that I used it .1 hours with 8.5 events per hour. Weird.
I changed masks. I checked hose. I check humidifier. I unplugged the machine and restarted. I tried again and same problem.
I am "addicted' to my machine. I am having trouble going to sleep without it. Any ideas? I hope it is the machine but I can't imagine what it could be. Air is definiately coming out of the hose. Could it be an exhale problem? I don't feel like it is hard to exhale, I just feel like I can't breathe.
Thanks for any thoughts.
I think I figured it out. The port that goes between the mask and hose wasn't letting air escape. I thought I had tried a different port but in my tiredness I didn't. Glad I went and checked everything again.
