I got my new machine and F&S Simplus face mask, night #1 was fine but I did wake up feeling like I was being suffocated a couple times and pulled the mask off. That goes away with time right?
Last night it started making farting noises and no matter how I repositioned it or tightened it, it just wouldn't stop shooting air our by my mouth and eyes. It only happened once my pressure went high it seems (about 15-16).
Since I'm in my 1st 30 days my DME is able to switch me out for free so she's got a Quattro lined up for me to pick up tomorrow to try.
I sleep with my mouth open, so she suggested a full face mask. She said if this doesn't work we could always do a nasal mask with a chin strap but she said she's had good luck with the Quattro.
My AHI went down to just over 6 on night one and 4 something last night so it's definitely working, and the machine is surprisingly quiet.
Does anyone have this machine (Respironics DS560HS apap) and have any idea about how to get the bluetooth to work? She told me it's enabled but the manual says she has to give me something to make it work and the Sleep Manager software doesn't work right with just the initial modem that is there for the insurance company.
i did just download sleepyhead, and that seemed to give really good info.
