I just switched to a bi-pap from a c-pap, after 10 years. I had a very hard time breathing in through my nose, and it is so quiet (except when I am breathing in. Is this normal? Please advise. Thanks!

When you changed machines, did your prescription change for air pressure. a Bipap is usually recommended to allow easier exhale which should make breathing easier. As far as the noise, can't say. I really don't hear much from my machine.

Thank you for your reply! I ended up actually reading the instructions. lol The remedy was to take off the wait for it to get up to pressure, switch to the larger nose pillow, and add more humidity. It's perfect! The noise was because the nose pillow was too small.

Thank you! I love my new machine, as much as you can love a bi-pap. My old one is a cpap from 2006, and this one is way better! Take care!
