Sierra, I got this 3 days ago, I have used it every night and I can tell you so far I have more energy during the day, I am not napping as much and I don't feel as sleepy, so never be certain unless you have tried something as it's unfair to pretend to know when you don't know. I am linking this, I bought them on Amazon. Comezy Anti Snoring Devices
I am not promoting this product in anyway, there are other brands and sellers of these, I would also think Ebay has these as well. I am just linking this to show readers what this is.
I have a high deductible health plan and was told my CPAP machine would cost me $2000 out of pocket. I went on Amazon to see what they sell for and ended up finding alternatives, such as Anti-Snoring Nose Vents for $10 or so. The one I selected had a 4.5 rating while the CPAP machines has a 3.5 rating. Of course it's all relevant, the higher rating on the vents could be because they are so inexpensive that people don't have high expectations. But it does tell you that these vents must work to some degree if you have that much satisfaction and there are hundreds or thousands of ratings on these devices, not just a handful that may have been rigged. Anyone have experience with these?
Anyone user a minimally invasive "mask" like this and does it work well:
Does anyone take their CPAP when they travel? Do you take your regular device or do you have a smaller travel device?
I see responses like I went from mid-30s to under 3, I guess the bigger question is do you feel more energetic and less sleepy now that it is down to 3? Overall do you feel better?
Hello Everyone, I am very new to CPAP, actually I have not acquired this device as of yet. I am told my insurance will purchase me one, however I want to be able to choose and purchase my own. I want one that is very comfortable and not intrusive. I don't mind paying more for a quality machine that brings more comfort. I was distracted enough with the sleep study devices being on me that I don't want this product to defeat the purpose. I appreciate any advise for a newcomer as well and heads up on what I should be aware of. Lastly how are your results? Is anyone getting amazing results? Did anyone get some very bad results? I appreciate your input as well as details behind your replies. Thank you!
