Sleep test tonight
Ok, Big Saturday night for me. Going to a sleep test. I have been through this before about 10 years ago so I know what to expect. Also, trying to tire myself out today so I can get through the night sleeping!!

My question is, which full facemask should I request? The type is best for me to use vs. nose or pillows...but do you have any suggestions that I can ask them for?

Thank you!

RE: Sleep test tonight
Philipg33, as you would know most FFMs take some getting used too, I use the Resmed Mirage Quattro but the newest Resmed FFM on the market is the Quattro Air, I have heard of good reviews for it. Good luck with the sleep study, I have one every two years, I don't think you ever get used to sleeping in a different environment with wires attached, let us know your results when you get them. You may also want to look at upgrading your CPAP but that's up to you.

RE: Sleep test tonight
Thank you all for the well wishes!

I'm pretty confident for this study! I think I've gotten used to a FFM over the last month at home. I am most definitely going to upgrade all equipment. That is the only reason I'm doing this as I needed a Dr. RX to get anything. My test was too old to use and also, I had tonsils and my Uvula removed since I was diagnosed in 2003. I was severe at that time, now I'm "moderate" . Either way, I'm still TIRED!

I will post how it went! Thank you all for the words of encouragement!

RE: Sleep test tonight
Hello all,

Well, unfortunately, they will not tell me the results. I have to wait about 7 days for the report to reach my Dr. I did get the report back from the study without the mask. If you want, I can post numbers. The test said I have "moderate Apnea" as opposed to Severe which I did have 10 years ago. I think it said I have 17 AHI / hour. The one negative it did say is that my sleep efficiency is lower than the the test 10 years ago...

As soon as I hear the results I'll let you all know. Thank you so much for the interest!!!
