CPAP and I have a 3 month old relationship.  Amara View mask and I typically cooperate with each other.  But lately my pressures have been running high and she is farting and leaking like crazy.  We are about to divorce.  Frankly, I don't think I'm cut out for this.

1.  Any tips to save our relationship?

2.  In one thread I read this:  " If you have an auto machine, there is a setting on your machine that allows you to adjust the mask at the highest pressure before starting therapy."  I think my machine is auto (dreamstation).......how do I set this to experiment?

My cushion replacement on Medicare advatange both ones I've had is.

2 cushions or pillows per month.
One headgear replacement every three months.
Full mask replacement ever 6 months.
Pretty sure that's universal across all advatange plans and straight medicare.

Ghost1958 that's true about pillows and nasal cushions. The cushion for a full-face mask is one per month.

RE: mask farts
Oh you all have really helped! I will implement some changes and inquire of my DME where my replacements might be. I started in August or Sept, so it's close to time they may be showing up.

I'd love some help with my SH graphs, I have questions about some other things there too.

Now to go to bed and see if Amara took her Beano!!
