Since I started using a machine over a year ago I have had on;y a few nights where I didn't struggle with major leaks as the pressure ramps up. I've been told about a product that applies to the mask that seals the mask to your face. Has anyone ever tried this product? Comes in a tube like silicone. it is called: "CPAPgel Mask Sealer"
I have been using my Dreamstation Bi-Pap for over 2 years now and have still not had one night where I haven't been waken up several times will mask problems. My pressures run high. Average Ipap and Epap have been running 18.75 with max for both at 24. I had been using the Resmed Airfit F20 and now the F30 (for the last 3 days. I spent quite a while getting the F30 set up and then having been trying to fine tune it. It is fine to begin with but when it ramps up it starts to leak. I keep having to hit the ramp button and start over. Same as with all of the other masks I have used. I don't know what to try next. The other masks, I would over tighten and that did help the leaks but I don't think that will work here and I really like the F30.
Ok. This morning my machine showed 7.60 for last night. Sleepyhead showed 2.56. That's the kind of differences I'm talking about. I'm not real concerned about it. I used my machine for a year before I even set my machine to show the AHI. I guess ignorance was bliss.
Ok. I am using a Dreamstation Bipap. When I check my machine readout I get one readout for AHI- say 6.5. When I download tto the Dreammapper ap the AHI for the same day will be lower- say 5.0. When I download from the sd card to Sleepyhead software my AHI will show lower still- say 2.5. The machine readout vs Dreammapper can be one or the other the lower AHI. But the Sleepyhead of of the card will always be the lowest. Anyone else notice this and which one is right.
