Mask issue
Mask issue
I was diagnosed with severe OSA in December. I got a prisma smart cpap with dreamwear full face mask. ( I hope I've got that right).

For the last month or more I've been having an issue which is constantly waking me up during the night. Its like the mask is too full of air and I can't breath with it. I usually turn off the machine and turn it back on. If I'm lucky it'll only take me 15/20mins to drop off to sleep. It could be longer. This can happen up to 10 times a night. Sometimes which i believe is common, I'm taking the mask off me in my sleep.

I have spoken to the company I got the cpap machine from and they are saying the machine is detecting an apnea episode and is increasing the air output to stop the episode. According to them my body will have to get used to it.

Has anyone else had this issue and found a way around it?

RE: Mask issue
I strongly suggest you download OSCAR and post your readings on the forum for more accurate suggestions regarding your experience with your current CPAP setup. If you look at http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/User-Sleeprider (signature section) you can find instructions on downloading Oscar, setting up the charts, and posting them to the forum.
