Good day

I'm new to the forum and new to CPAP therapy and wanted to thank all of you for willingly giving your time and advice/insight. I typically find forums invaluable in this regard and so far believe this one to be no different. I look forward to much reading and much learning in the coming weeks/months/years.

Again, thank you all, administrators and contributers alike. Thanks

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: New to the forum
Thank you for the warm welcome. Alexa my pressure is 6 rright now, but I'm new to treatment and that's what they started me at. I expect it to be raised slightly Monday when I bring my data in. II'm happy so far tho, my AHI was 41 and my machine says last night was 10 so progress is being made. Smile

Hoseheads Dielaughing good one
