Hi everyone!

I am glad to be here, and looking over things, I think I will feel right at home.

I have questions. It appears the answers can be found here.

I have a mild apnea (about 7 per hour). This apparently qualified for a lifetime perscription. Smile

I will say that I have a better nights sleep when I use it.

I would like to upload my charts for someone to decipher with me, so that I can read them in the future and understand.

What form would best suit the community?

Thank you.

In the interim. Man I hope this formats right...... No, it doesn't, not in the least, but since I can't upload yet, please bear with it. There is a long boring explanation for the large gap that appears if anyone wants it, but I shall not outright bore you with it.

Well you numbers look fine. A little leak action going on, but not all that bad.
Your max pressure is right up against your upper limit 0.06 away, you could try raising that a bit and see if your max follows it up.

Most importantly is how are you sleeping? Is there something specific that brings you by? Wanting to know if you should/could get a newer machine? Is there something more available now? Not quite as comfortable sleeping as you would like?

Short version;

The mask I have and am currently using is not the mask that I was originally fit for.

Trying to figure out how to get that one back without running up against those stupid @#$&%($&=:Angry@())($ prescription rules that apply to something that I have to (should) use the rest of my life. Better would be to get an xl mask, but I have not found one in my searches.

The leaks are because I hate shaving (read lazy) for the most part.
