This forum has helped me to stay after my health and don't back down from misleading advice from DME's that care more about what goes in their pockets rather than my lungs! I do feel and see the difference over the set pressure I had on my first machine. When I see my average pressure is above the preset locked in brick that speaks volumes and confirms what I learned. Just hoping to see my oxygen levels increase. I am recording them each night to show my Doctor and see what he recommends. I just recently received my new machine, my positives are it has brought my heart rate up, has not been uncomfortable at all with new pressure levels, and now I have a overhead hose holder that really helps me through each night now!(11-22-2012, 09:54 PM)2Tim215 Wrote: I'm sorry this turned into a bit of disagreement. I will continue my therapy, especially now that I have good machine. I certainly don't want anyone at odds with each other, especially as a group who has a lot to share from experience and different perspectives.
It's not really a disagreement as I understand the need for support for those who are having problems with therapy. My concern is that some people may join this site as I did in the first place to download the clinicians manual for their cpap machine, when I first joined I had been for my second overnight sleep study and had ordered an S9 autoset after reading all the brochures of the different makes and models available. I came to this site with a positive attitude as my night on the cpap machine was a positive experience, but it didn't take long to start doubting whether I was going to succeed after reading numerous negative experiences. It has been over 2 months now since i started therapy and I am very happy with my results.
