Thanks for sharing your experiences, I hope to take all the input I'm receiving and using it to find out what works best for me. Thanks again.
Thanks for all the tips, I suppose I will just need to try a few different things until I find what I like best. So far, So good as night 2 was also a good night. Thanks again. :)
Thanks for your input and let me start off by saying since my family has a history of diabetes I do keep an eye on that and get tested frequently at a doctors request but thankfully and issues has been handled through diet. Not sure how long that will last but I'm crossing my fingers. We have always been water drinkers but the middle of the night drinks just started when dry mouth showed up. I have a DreamStation with a mask that covers my nose & mouth, not sure what they call it but I can check when I get home. I did have water to the max fill but it is dry in my home due to our radiator heating and I have been thinking of buying a room humidifier maybe it's time to pull the trigger on that cause it would help I'm sure. I also have a heated tube and can set the humidity level and temperature of the tube. last night I just ran everything at the factory set levels. Maybe I'll drop the humidity 1 level the tube temp was at 1 so not sure if I should drop to zero or bump it up 1. I guess I will need to try a few things until I find what works best.
Do you clean yours by hand or did you buy one of those auto cleaning machines like SoClean? I think I want to buy the machine because I want to make sure it stays as clean as possible. Do you have any thoughts on that? Thanks again for the input, I really do appreciate it.
Last night was my first night wearing a full mask C-PAC machine. I wouldn't call it a comfortable night but it wasn't uncomfortable either... if that makes any sense. I didn't wake up at all and usually, 1 to 2 or 3 times a night, I make a trip to the bathroom. Not last night. the machine said I slept 6.9 hours which if true was basically(almost I turned the light off 71/2 hours before my alarm set) the whole time from when I went to bed. I did notice that all the water was out of my reservoir but only had a slightly dry mouth. In the past 6 or 8 months every time I woke to go to the bathroom I had a very dry mouth and easily drank 2 to 3 bottles of water throughout the night. I guess that's partly why I in the bathroom so much at night. I like sleeping on my side but I did not feel like the mask was sealed well when I did so I spent most of it on my back. That's ok but I am more comfortable on my side. I hope this works out 1 way or another cause I feel this will be my biggest challenge when it comes to the machine. Any advice is appreciated, thanks for taking the time to read my first impressions of "MyApmea".
