Questions Therapy Thread/Mask Leaks/Wipes
Back on CPAP after 5 years, 30+ days in. A few questions, I will set-up a therapy thread. I have redacted my sleep report for that post. My AHI per Oscar is much higher than the data from when I did CPAP 5.5 Years ago (Sleepyhead) which was like 0.5-1.5 most night versus all over the place but higher now.

What data should I post, do you need the old data???, one thing I noticed my old machine a different but same model Resmed Airsense 10 Auto never recorded me having Centrals but they seem to be a significant like 50% of events now.

If I only post new data, should I just pick a day? I feel like most nights I'm awake ALL night  bothered by mask/ leaks, is there a way to figure what part of night I'm ACTUALLY Sleeping?

I'm finding my F30i is leaking more, is it worn out?? I can't afford a new cushion every month and my Medicaid insurance, if I time it perfectly get 3 cushions a year. Sad
With my old machine I used an F10 (with a gecko nose pad that wore out) leaked some but the cushion I think lasted a whole year. Silicone seemed "thicker" than the F30i.

Finally I was going to buy unscented Baby Wipes, but all either have an oil or Aloe extract. Is Aloe extract bad?

Ditch the f30i and get a F&P Vitera. I had a RT rave about the F30i.... LOL Up all night? depending on your meds try melatonin, light snack, and chamomile/lavander tea about an hour before bed.

Lets see current OSCAR report.

Any thought on wipes?

Resmed info says any wipes OK without alcohol. I'm using Cottenelle wipes on my AirTouch F20 but there are cheaper brands. Thankfully Medicare will pay for one a month--so far I have made it to 6 weeks before stopped by leaks.
