On the MyApnea staff team working to improve the lives of sleep apnea patients
Boston, MA, USA
I would definitely recommend contacting the equipment provider for guidance, as water and electronics is never a good thing! I believe you can contact ResMed myAir's support team here: https://myair.resmed.com/Support.aspx
The machines are supposed to have some sort of protection that can stop water from entering the electronics, but you never know if there is a damaged machine.
Best of luck!
I believe the target audience for this American Academy of Sleep Medicine podcast is sleep clinicians, but I wanted to share because this episode has an expert in medical marijuana and OSA talking about the research and what we know. My takeaway from listening is that there really is NOT any strong evidence here. If anyone else listens, let me know what you think!
There have been some wonderful responses already! I just wanted to share these old threads on this same topic in case reading about the experiences of others is helpful (or even just provides comfort)! Evidently this is a common problem...
I also just switched from a queen to a king and from a 'regular' mattress to foam. With both changes I noticed a big reduction in how much tossing and turning from my spouse (and doggy) I notice at night. I honestly barely notice they are in bed anymore!
We got around the monstrosity of the king issue by ordering the mattress online. It arrived in a box, which was horribly heavy, but at least we were able to handle it and get it up the stairs of our very small house. My only fear is when we move :). The idea of getting two twins is interesting!
All this is with the caveat that neither my husband nor I have PLMD.
I am so sorry. I appears your posts got inadvertently caught in our spam filter. You should be able to post and add attachments successfully now by dragging imaged into the comment.
Let me know if any issues come up. You can also always feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if any IT questions come up again.
I apologize again and hope you have a good experience on this forum moving ahead!
These are all great responses! Since the topics relates to insomnia, I wanted to share these two articles. You touched on many of the points, but figured a comprehensive list of 'sleep hygiene' guidance might be helpful. The first one is more related to COVID-times:
Hi Sleepea! Let us know how things go with the new mask. I hope this resolves the issue...
This post is a few years old, but just wanted to toss it into this thread for reference... https://myapnea.org/blog/2016/02/what-is-complex-sleep-apnea
hahah that is hilarious and very accurate!
Glad you are both still here! Hoping others see this warning and come back too!
