New Dreamstation Auto & Amara View mask
#1
Hi everyone ,
I am new to this board and I just got a new dreamstation auto and Amara View FFM (its really a hybrid) from my DME. I'm on Medicare so I am happy with my new machine
With the exception of software the dreamstation is great, heated humidifier and hose, nice quiet machine.
The Amara view mask is basically a dremwear nasal pillow with a mouthpiece attached.
I cant get it to seal, but I think it might be a good mask for someone with lower pressure. My pressure is 15 and my machine is set up as a CPAP not on auto.
I'm calling DME today and trading it for resmed f10.
Last night I used my old swift II and my AHI was about 10.
I'm told I chipmunk cheek when I hit REM so had large leakage number
I'm getting an Airfit p10 today and will work on mouthleak problems.
