Hi. I usually fall asleep with my full facemask device on, in less than 10 minutes. However, I find that often times I wake up after 3 or 4 hours and feel like I just can't get enough air thru my machine which causes me to lay awake for hours. I don't have that problem when I fall asleep for the first time. Anyone else have similar issues? Thank you

Yes, just started on this one week ago. Middle of night, after bathroom break, seems like minimal air coming through.

Have you checked the machine to be sure it is indeed still putting out air? The hose for kink? The vents on your mask blocked by PJs or cover or anything else? I had that experience a number of times several years ago and I think for me it was the vent was blocked by how my face was mashed into my pillow, and that wasn't good.

Also, if it is consistent, check hose for small leaks? Don't know why it would be different later in the night, but...

Do you have nay data from your machine? It could be useful in understanding this. Also, what kind of machine do you have? Different machines have some slightly different features like autoramp which may not be helping.
