I used it will my ResMed and loved the detail but now that I have the DreamStation I get minimal detail. I still like it.
You are a mouth breather which I am also. Before I got a full face mask, every time I would open my mouth to breath it interrupted my sleep. I've been on a CPAP for over 25 years and use a heater humidifier, heated tube and Full Face Mask. That works for me but I also have CSA (Central Sleep Apnea) which now makes me wear a non venter mask so that I re-breath my own air.
I had a UPPP done in the 80's and unfortunately the web didn't go into great detail about the procedure. The surgery was a bigger deal than I ever imagined - They had to cut and use stitches to close and everyone had to be removed over time as they did not dissolve. Took about 3-4 weeks before I got off of noodles and jello.
I was told that it was questionable surgery but I was desperate to get off the CPAP. I had about 30 incidents that rose to over 40+ and my snoring did stop. The surgery removed my uvula which I blame for my easily chocking due to food not going into my stomach. I had quite a few friends who had it with laser and they like me felt great at first but their episodes increased.
I'm surprised you haven't been referred to Dr. Thomas who I can consider the leader in treating CSA. I have been on a CPA (treatment for Sleep Apnea) for over 25 + years and was sent to the Sleep Clinic.
