My new CPAP

Postby whoami » Thu Jun 06, 2013 1:11 am

Yesterday I picked up my CPAP machine. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea well over a year ago, pretty well two.
I was in denial, didn't like the Dr. he did not explain a thing almost only said buy the machine. Anyway, I had another test done and it was worse than the first.

I was lucky, LOL, I am not sure about that, to get a brand new to the market machine. The first in the area to have one. My hubby laughed and said of course, the newest model costs more,LOL

I tried it last night. I haven't noticed anything different other than the blister on my nose from the mask and the stiff neck and shoulder this morning.

Ever since my accident that injured my neck I hold my head on a tilt. When I strap on the mask it puts my head straight. I think. That is why I have the sore neck and shoulder. My hubby thinks I maybe lay down differently with it.

I can't use only the nose mask because I breath through my mouth. I also have a blister on my nose but I need to call them. I told them I have a latex allergy and they were sure there is no latex. I shall see what tomorrow brings.

Does anyone else use a CPAP? Curious to the cost in the UK. Here it was around £2000. And a new mask is £200
The added benefit to this one is that it also works like an APAP in automatically adjusting the force.

Expect the worst in life you won't be disapointed and you'll be prepared!
