I only go there for the comic relief and to keep my mind off what's happening with our government at the moment.

Dont-know  I am an accountant so any advice given here is not medical. If I give any financial advice, you can take it to the bank. However, you will have a hard time cashing it in. Okay

From machine or charts for auto-cpap, set the min 1cm below median pressure, or 2cm below 90/95%. max at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings

For those of us who were raised in the era of "The 3 Stooges," and later, Rodney Dangerfield, the "other" forum is entertaining. I once (actually, twice) asked a CPAP related question there, and received NO replies. Same question here, 47 replies, all helpful.
Old man, new machine. Better sleep! Thanks

What other cpap forum are you guys talking about. I only know of one and this one is all I need. Couldn't have started my internet forum foray on a better site than this. In fact this is the only forum I chat on. Folks here are so sincere and go out of their way to help! Kudos to Supersleeper, moderators/monitors and all the staff. Thanks like

lots-o-coffee
The doctor says coffee does not affect my tinnitus and it's got lots of antioxidants....

Can't post the link, since that forum is owned and operated by a commercial Durable Medical Equipment (DME) provider (sells CPAP machines online), and most commercial links aren't allowed in our forums (see our commercial links policy in the forum rules).  That forum is owned & operated by Supplier #1 if you want to check it out.  You should be able to get to their forum from their online store-- look for a link at the bottom under "community".

Yep, increasingly folks tell me that their health care professional has recommended Apnea Board if they have any questions.  Of course, no one here is acting in the role of a health care professional, and all we can do is provide help as best we can within the scope our personal knowledge and experiences. 

As our caveat states on every forum page:  "INFORMATION ON APNEA BOARD FORUMS OR ON APNEABOARD.COM SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS MEDICAL ADVICE.

Ok, I just couldn't resist to see what was going on over at the other forum after reading your comments.  It's like a train wreak!  You can't look away.  They obviously have some very knowledgeable people over their trying to contribute thoughtful analysis but they have a classic example of "the blind leading the blind."  When members have to put "Don't listen to so and so because he doesn't know anything" in their signatures, that's a pretty good clue that the forum might want to consider some sort of moderation. 

But hey, I liked The 3 Stooges while growing up!  Now I know where to go to get my fix!

It's an absolute gong show over there with our former forum member (alphabet boy as he is called) occasionally (often) wreaking havoc.

It is soooo much nicer over here.

Let us not turn this thread into a forum bashing. Both forums serve a purpose and meet the needs of those who drift one way or the other.
