Please help with treatment review
RE: Please help with treatment review
Thanks sleeprider!

I changed the setting last night before I slept.  I feel pretty good; except my dog woke me up and that's the gap shown in treatment.  I gave her some Rescue Remedy and went back to sleep.

So here are two screen shots. (edit: failed. My computer hates me. so...I've added the screenshots in two following posts. my apologies. )

The first one is with the "man" setting activated. I've been using that for a while.

The second one is with the "for her" setting activated.  Pressures seem different.

Good news...the Knightsbridge Dual Strap seems to be working and keeping my jaw closed so I don't mouth breath.  The other recent change was that I read a posters description telling how to adjust a mask. It really helped.  I've had leakage from the bottom of the mask....I wasn't aware of that.  I couldn't feel leakage there.  However, adjusting it ever so slightly made a difference.  I like the Knightsbridge Dual Strap better than other chinstraps I've used.

To my eye, pressures were similar, but flow limitation higher with for her. I don't think making conclusions on the basis of one night is good validation, so go with what feels best and it may take more time to decide.

Thanks sleeprider

If it ain't broke don't fix it

I'll put the "man" setting back because I've done that for a while.

I *think* my big issue is getting a good seal on my mask, and keeping my mouth closed. (I wish that I tolerated a full face mask. I've never kept one on. Closest to successful was the F20 by ResMed. but it leaked horribly on my face.)

Thanks so much.
