Hello, I'm Dan. I'm 46, and I have dealt with positional sleep apnea for 12 years by simply sleeping on my side. I live in the Denver area and am a systems administrator. I just recently decided to try to get a CPAP machine because of issues I'm begin having with my arms due to sleeping on my side, and that's why I'm here now.

Hi, I'm Marc. I'm new here also. I found out that I have sleep apnea about 6 weeks ago. Started CPAP about a month ago and still getting used to it and trying to reduce mask leakage.

If you are looking for mask leak advice, helps to know what pressure(s) you machine is set to and what type mask.

I'm using a Resmed N20. The machine is set between 4 and 20. Leakage is usually in the mid 30's to mid 40's range.
