Welcome


Good luck with your start as a "hosehead".  Make sure you stay with it and if you run into any issues or have questions, many experienced members are here to help - just ask.

PS-- I merged the two threads you started, because they're essentially the same subject matter.

I am a newbie here, I was diagnosed back in September last year with Sleep Apnea. However I just received my machine yesterday after going through a paperwork hunt and a change of insurance providers due to a new job in October. I was given a Dreamwear CPAP with Heated Humidifier and Wifi data upload . I use a nose mask but might look into getting nose plugs. My first night I slept ok I just wanted to introduce myself.

By nose plugs, I hope you mean a nasal pillows mask.  Very comfortable for most of us.  Look into the Resmed Airfit P10 (for her if you're small).  The upload to your provider and MyAir is by wireless phone line, and that data is very minimal.  Double check what model you have by looking on the lower right-front of the machine below where it says Resmed.  There are 3-models, CPAP, Elite and Autoset.  The CPAP produces minimal useful data, so hope you have one of the others.
