New to the board, not CPAP.
RE: New to the board, not CPAP.
The only consistent thing is the presence of episodes of airway obstruction and restriction from positional issues. Since you tolerate the PS 4.0 easily without CA, you may want to try adding in PS up to 5.0.

RE: New to the board, not CPAP.
Use the mask that works best for you. If you can control mouth leaks, then a nasal interface is preferable. I have never had to resort to taping, so it's hard for me to relate to that, but I know a lot of members do this.

RE: New to the board, not CPAP.
Sorry to post again so soon, but the last 2 days have been dragging. My daytime drowsiness is pretty bad since the change of the p.s to 5 and well im just not feeling all well. Also I'm not sure if its because ive had a slight congestion but its been very hard to breathe in the mask, to the point where I'm taking it off in my sleep.

Dude! when a change is clearly worse than were you were at, you need to go back to previous settings, even if I suggested it. Don't continue this. We may work on PS to refine it, but we sure don't want to cause a worse result. There is not CA activity, and everything is obstructive, so we need to reset and figure out what is going on.

Attachments are from my charts since I've been using the dreamwear nasal piece (1 week now)

So I ended up getting a Dreamwear nasal piece instead of a FFM and it seems like its working best for me. Large size was the key here.

AHI is low again but still feeling a bit tired BUT its an improvement from my previous FFM tiredness. I actually wake up onmy off days and I cannot stop sleeping. I notice when I sleep 8+ hours (which I can only do on my day before off nights since i wake up at 5:30 am everyday for work) I just cannot stop feeling like I could sleep all day. Its not a tiredness drowzyness just like It takes me a whole day to actually wake up. I think I'm sleeping too hard? So weird.
