I have found that one or two calls a day at each bottleneck will expedite getting your copy of the test.
I went from sleep doc appointment to sleep study, to results, to new ASV PAP machine in TWO WEEKS.

The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Squeak! Squeak!

RE: Sleep test tonight
Also, forgot to add, the mask they gave me was the Resperonics Comfortgel Blue Full....It was not as comfortable as the old one I had (both full face).

The problem I had with it was that the bottom part of the mask felt like it was pushing up my lower lip. It was medium which is what I have at home but it feels bigger. The one I have at home has no brand name on it and it's so old, I don't remember.

The Nasal mask is the most comfortable but I often have congested sinuses and even if I use something to clear them, my mouth sems to open when i sleep and i cant get used to the chin strap. I was going to look online for a mask but in the end, this taught me to try them on and try several.

I'm just fortunate I have a mask I can fall asleep with now. It works because of mask covers I bought so it is cloth on face, not plastic. It's done wonders. If you can't take plastic on your face, you have to try these cloth covers. I bought them online and it was the best purchase I made for my apnea!!!
