After reading many posts, there appears to be a group of people that feel as I do. I wonder what the percentage is compared to the total population? My story:
I was diagnosed with sleep and recd a phillips respironics System one Hid DOM auto machine with humidifier. They came to my home and provided instructions and setup. That was the last time I had 8 hours of sleep. I have changed masks, nasal pillows, changed humidifier settings tubing, turned of ramp, turned on ramp, adjusted ramp numbers but still no help. I have taken tubing and masks upon discharge from hospital recently and used on my machine. Hospital therapy not much different than home therapy. I constantly adjust mask and find I need some air leak around nose to feel like I have enough air. I have slept a few hours when I am over tired but always am up at 3am pulling mask off. I feel that I cannot get enough air to breathe. I have called the supplier but not getting a response. Talked with my MD who nods and says " it just takes time". Consequently, anytime I am in the recliner, I fall asleep for 2-4 hours screwing up my sleep pattern. I gave myself 6 months to acclimate . It is past 6 months and I have been unable to sleep with the machine on. sorry for the verbose missive! Can anyone help? I am close to tossing this torture device in the trash! No wonder there is a hgih number of non compliant patients!
