Just found this forum. I've been diagnosed with moderate OSA : 30-ish incidents per hour so I've decided to sign up for a trial period with a Resmed S9 Auto.
Received the machine yesterday and mask fitting (Full Face as I'm a mouth breather).
Tried it last night and had it on for 3 hours before I took it off. It wasn't very restful - I think I dozed a bit and was awake at other times. Seemed like there was a lot of pressure and occasional leakages (probably because I toss and turn frequently).
Using the machine seems to cause my nose to get stuffy and block. If I remove the mask, my nose clears up and I can breathe through it. Any ideas? Is it because humidity or temperature is set wrongly? I have humidity set to 3 and the temperature to 27 degrees Celsius.
The other thing is that it seems there were times when the machine seem to think that while I am swallowing I have an apnea event and starts pumping lots of air. I'm not sure if its my imagination...
I'm going to try to get into clinician's view to see what the settings are.
Thanks for any comments/responses
