It will take you a while to recoup from the exhaustion you have and that obviously caused or contributed to a hospital stay. Stick with it so your body can recover. You most likely have a huge sleep deficit and your organs have probably suffered from it. It takes time to heal just as if you had an injury to a part of your body or you recover from surgery. the worst thing you can do is give up. Have you tried the carefusion chin strap? it is a sturdy one. YOu can look at the product reviews and read others' experience with masks, chin straps and other products.
I've found I have always needed software to show you DAILY usage graphs. I can get basic number of hours from the machine but it doesn't tell me how many hours each day or over how long the hours have been counting.
this is getting weird. after the sleep study last night, [ which was conducted without a cpap] to get another base line. the tech said 'you dont need a cpap'
i had less than five per hour and that is not enough to qualify.
i had to take a bunch of pills to sleep but 'we got to get data and if you dont sleep we wont get any data' no joke -sherlock. thats what i am trying to tell you. i am thinking i should not have taken any meds.
