RE: Newbie Getting Sleepier!
My old PC did not like Sleepyhead. I need to update a few things. I found out my sister in law and my brother have each been using a CPAP for 1 and 4 years respectively. They have shed some light on their struggles. I have asthma, so I am a bit scared to adjust from the auto settings myself. I did go back to the basics and rewatch the videos about the masks and fittings. I did get a comfortable fit at the sleep clinic when they showed me step by step what to do. In a nutshell going back to basics showed my straps were out of position. Since making those small adjustments, I am getting less leaks. I am now at 0 to 5 L per hour for the past several nights, and have scored 3 consecutive nights of 100 out of 100 pts on the MyAir site. I have more energy and will go exercise this afternoon.
