I went to my compliance appointment the other day to discuss how I was getting on and for the second time mentioned how much I hated it due to leaking mask face puffing up like a balloon etc etc. I tried a nasal mask and have tried the full mirage quattro mask, I made sure I was issued with a chin strap this time as the nasal mask doesnt work otherwise as my mouth will drop open in the night.
The nurse asked why I was under recommended compliance and I explained the above re puffing up and waking up ripping the mask off half way through the night as I felt as if I was choking also new job and alternate shifts.
The nurse went through me like a ton of bricks (fillipina) and threatened me with reporting me in September here in the uk (if the law changes with dvla,which she hopes it will ) and all sorts and confirmed she could see everything all the data on my machine and could tell me how many apneas I have a night.
Guess what? I have a Resmed S9 Escape ??? What Data???
It doesnt record anything except start and stop times and the settings on the machine. To be honest I have never met such a patronising individual in my life so will make sure I see a different individual next time, get on at me yeah but do not lie to me.
So I managed 5.2 hours sleep with the chin strap and nasal mask and 3.2 with the full mask which dropped to 2.9 last night so am off back to the nasal mask as the erm numbers look better
Anyway this is a useful forum and am glad its here even if it is just to moan.
