Son gets his machine today
My son gets to be setup with his new machine today. He got a choice of the PR 560 Auto, or the Airsense 10 Auto. I steered him to PR - he is only 33 and active! loves camping off grid. Told him he can't go wrong with either, but that the PR will likely suit him slightly better Smile He picks it up today @ 4

Trying to get him to join the forum or at least read it... but mom's here Big Grin you know how it is. I am very excited for him to be on treatment. They didn't waste any time getting him a machine, either - his results were first seen by his Doctor (and published to his online "mychart") Saturday night. His apnea is horrible! AHI of 102 when calculated for 8 hours - but there is at least 1 hour where he is clearly not sleeping during the test (position is upright and events for that slot are blank) and a terrible rate of desats with lowest at 69% I have great hopes for positive results, and have infected him with my enthusiasm for same. He can't wait either Big Grin

Oh - and he did *not* have to go to Apria. whew! I looked over the DME he is being sent to, and they are a Northwest outfit. They have online ordering for supplies, and they will come to your home and set you up if necessary. They have a 24x7 staff. Looks good so far! Hope they do that well for reals.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: Son gets his machine today
I've been on my Airsense 10 Auto almost a month now. I'm 36 and My AHI was also 100+

I don't know much about the PR but the Airsense 10 has been fantastic! My AHI is on average between 0.8-4.5 per hour now.

glad that everything seems to be going smoothly and that your son will have his machine today and hopefully his health and sleep will improve but very little problems adapting to his treatment

RE: Son gets his machine today
Thanks, me50!! I expect him to adapt well to the treatment. I have for the most part, and he is much less "sensitive" to everything than I am. He's a bear of a dude. He's been suffering with this at increasing levels for quite some time - I suspect he had apnea as a child (same as me. my fault, my genes....) His sleep study was pure OSA - should respond well - if anything he may need higher pressure and a bipap considering men tend to need more than women and mine run above average. but I am getting ahead. He needs to do the apap first. he wants my assistance, and that is good too. I like to meddle Wink

RE: Son gets his machine today
he's in there right now... trying on the p10! he has facial hair, so its the best opt if he can keep his mouth shut (debatable! Bigwink )

told him to ask for a heated hose

RE: Son gets his machine today
I started out with a PR years ago and it didn't help so I quit using it. Then I got an s9 elite and that didn't work well either so I got an s9 auto. that didn't work well either so another sleep study and I got the vpap and it is better. After over a year with this machine, I am still waking up but it seems lately that I sleep longer before I wake up and the data is improving.

wishing your son much success in his therapy! good that he has your support and knowledge
