Just starting with Resmed Aircurve 10S Feb 2019
I'm on MAC and find that if I open SH before putting data card in reader, then put card in and click on "SD Import" it works much better.
What's worked for me with Resmed F30 full face: Switch on humidifier for a few minutes, put the mask on, feel slight airflow, select "mask fit", which gives big airflow and a red or green smiley face, fiddle with mask until it settles and smiles green consistently, then start sleep session. Listen and move fingers around outside of mask for leakage. Take out my hearing aids and don't have noise! (slight advantage for me) ;-)
In the past someone suggested it could be humidifier slightly loose. Shove it in firmly until it catches. Could the hose coming out of CPAP be not pushed in snugly? Let us know what fixes it.
This is such a great info portal. The resource links would give many newbies/everybody opportunity for better therapy. It sure would have helped me with glossary terms, acronyms, and Resmed's video of sleep interruptions, etc. All in one place. Passing this site along during a Forum reply only reaches those reading THAT topic response. We could all benefit.
I started 1/31/19 w/Resmed Aircurve 10S BiPAP and am now on my fourth mask, the Resmed F30, which has greatly diminished my leaks. My last 4 of 5 MyResmed sleep reports are 100! I'm feeling more energy and don't day nap any more. Keep trying PhyllisK, with that good ole "Show Me" state spirit, you'll get there.
Thanks. Appreciate everybody's efforts that's working on this.
OK, another discovery for me. Have not tried it (yet). It's from the Cleveland Clinic. Only $40, far less than an office visit. I used to $leep for free. Now it's costing me money, but I'll be a better person, right?

OK, this may be a little on the "woo-woo" side for some of you. Some of my friends think CPAP is "woo-woo" when I tell them(and isn't free). I just discovered this free app, downloaded it on phone, and am going to try it. Lots of good info. May also help some of my aged body's aches and pains as well. Maybe my diet as well. Asian practitioners have used this for eons. No needles needed with acupressure!
Our CPAPs help us when we are asleep. This may help some of us get to that starting point.
Any acupressure users on Forum?
Just discovered a free app that I downloaded on phone: CBT-i Coach, developed by VA. Have not tried yet, but has some very educational info. https://mobile.va.gov/app/cbt-i-coach
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=gov.va.mobilehealth.ncptsd.cbti&hl=en shows more info. Download app from your phone.
Has anyone tried this? Helpful?
If you were a Texan, you'd probably try TEQUILA! Not pronounced "to kill ya". ;-)
