I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea since 05,06? and originally given a Resmed S7, with Quattro Nasal mask. I live in the US and back then I traveled a lot internationally, so coupled with travel and trying to get used to using a bulky Cpap machine caused me to not really use it like I should have. Back in 2012, I decided to try and use it and make it work. After finally getting somewhat used to it, I realized what I had was very uncomfortable and offered very little info and comfort from the therapy. I could not tell if the machine was just not working, or if I was still struggling to get use to CPAP machine.
In my research I discovered this wonderful website that helped me make some drastic changes in my CPAP Therapy and change DME. For one I learned you can and should ask for what you want, and not settle for what the DME gives you. Getting supplies for the old resmed quattro mask and accessories for a discontinued S7 (Humidifier) from my old DME was painful, but that's a whole different story in it's self.
To shorten this story, With my research I settled on what I wanted which was the new Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset and the Airfit N10 nasal mask. Found the DME who offered it and still took my Insurance. I am now a very, very happy camper. So far only 4 full nights with new machine and mask, and man what a world of difference. AHI is around 3.4 per night so far and I feel much rested than I did with the old S7. I'm Currently using the Rescan 5.1 software, and it works perfectly with the Airsense 10. Now I just need to learn what all the stats and terminology means. AHI and AI is the only things I understand so far, but I'm learning. This website also linked me to docs on terminology lingo for CPAP therapy and how to use and understand the Rescan Software.
So I just wanted to say thanks again for this wonderful forum...
