Cool glad I did
over 11 years ago I was diagnosed with mixed apnea and narcoleptsy, I was fortunate for having worked in the hazmat industry, so sleeping with a mask on my face wasnt a problem. I felt better the first night on therapy, my doc told me I was so bad if I had gone any longer I would not be here today and wouldnt have seen my kids grow up. so with over 38,800 hrs logged I guess I'm some what of a veteran to this now with my first machine usein the last of its 9 lives I finally recieved a new one a few days ago thanks to medicare, what a difference new technology makes and yes I am disabled and legally blind so sorry for any type o's..lol..so dont give up on it..there is light over the horizon and u will get there with determination...Sleep-well

Congrats on the new machine, need4sleep!

Yep, the new CPAP technologies (even during the past 3-4 years or so) has made CPAP machines much more efficient, effective, quiet and better as far as data-capabilities with an increase in comfort as well.

Glad you got to upgrade!

Good to hear your story. Spelling is not important (I didn't notice problems), but hearing first hand how someone has increaded their life span is important. Thanks
