RE: correct Position for PAP Machine
Found a good folding chair with flat seat so it isn't on the floor..  Seat has a slight slant, only a couple of degrees.I got here straight from the hospital where i used their equipment and asked if they had distilled water.  They gave me saline solution which I used two night before I realized what I had they had given me!   Caught it  and my spouse brought me in a jug of distilled.  Had to clean out some residue from the tank.  Seems to work OK--has a 0.00AHI last night and figures have all been below 1.

Saline solution? Guess that gave a hint of salty sea air.

Wish I could ID what that nurse put in my humidifier. Hospital Grade distilled or some other. Whatever it was, it was in a sealed rectangular bottle, about 1 liter I think, had about 2 inches left in the bottle after she filled the empty tub. Smelled slightly sweet too. Shoulda brought it home I guess. Mornincoffee
