ResMed Liberty and a Full Night of Sleep
#1
Hi:

I have been struggling with trying to use my CPAP since 1/14. I started with a nasal pillow set up, but I am a mouth breather. I could not handle a chin strap. I was then trying to use a Quattro and the most I could get was a couple of hours of sleep before I would wake up and feel like I was trapped/suffocating from the mask and I would rip it off. When I used CPAP at 14, I would feel pressure in the sinus cavity under my eyes. When I used the Auto function, that would help with the feeling of pressure. After my sleep study, I was prescribed CPAP at 14.

Well, last night I received a ResMed Liberty. I used it last night at the CPAP 14 setting and I had a great full night sleep from 12 am to 7am. I did need to use an OTC sleeping pill to help me get to sleep, but I think eventually I won't even need that.

My mouth was a little dry when I woke up even though I had the humidifier set to 5.

I honestly did not think that I would ever get a full night of sleep with CPAP. I hope this continues.

Welcome to the forum nico08! Congratulations on your full night of sleep. Hopefully, you can get the same results without any sleep aids. Looks like you're fairly new to CPAP and like most of us, looking for the right mask. Some people will find one that works for them right away, others can search long and hard before finding THE mask for them. I hope the Liberty continues to work for you. I tried one when I was first starting out as I liked the form factor of the hybrid type mask since it had a small footprint. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me though as I would develop leaks around the nasal pillows during the night which would wake me up. The Quattro FX has worked great for me and recently I've been using the Quattro Air and like it too. Anyways, good luck!

Hi nico08,
It's good to hear that you had a good night sleep with the new mask.
Hopefully the liberty will continue to work well for you.
Sometimes medications can cause dry mouth, so hopefully you won't have to keep using the sleep aids.

omgosh!! that sounds so promising!! I am waiting for that face mask to get to me as that is what I wanted to try rather than a full face mask (Quattro fx). Are you a side or back sleeper or a combination?
