What can I use instead of headgear? Or fix?

RE: What can I use instead of headgear? Or fix?
Check out the BLEEP DreamPort Nasal Mask.  You can google and/or youtube it.

I asked my guy where I get supplies and he's heard about it -- just doesn't have it in stock yet.\

Looks interesting -- may get expensive in supplies but NO headgear?

I have the bleep and love it. Lots of us on here use it. It's great to have no straps of any kind. Also, most insurance will cover it. I get mine for free.

Bleep mask is what I recommend for no headgear. The cost of it has come down a ton in the past year. You can use it for around $0.50 day now. That's cheap. It sure doesn't leak!

Thanks. But where can you get them for 50 cents? I see them advertised at $24 for 16 pairs. $1.50 a pair

Amazon and makesleepeasy both have them. MakeSleepEasy you have to buy in bulk, but they net down super cheap to around Fifty-Six cents I think.

Dear Bezi,
I recommend you to check this link below about TECSA.

Thanks! The question is whether the doctors are aware of the treatment options... The article has given me questions to ask when I finally meet with the doctor (hopefully next week).

According to the article, BIPAP and ASV can help with central apneas. Why does everyone tell me I should be using ASV? I don't think I've seem BIPAP recommended by anyone.

BiPAP with back up. BIPAP ST.
Other option is ASV.
