  • Perceived effectiveness for Sleep Apnea Disorder: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 8 hr Daily
Advice & Tips: I am now using a wisp nasal mask. Prior to the mask change, I started having severe dry mouth/throat and I still have it with the new mask. I let a Ricola dissolve in my mouth during the night but sometimes I wake mid-sleep to add another because the dryness keeps waking me. I dropped effectiveness to moderate because I have been increasingly waking feeling worse that I did before going to sleep.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Sleep Apnea Disorder: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 8 hr Daily
Advice & Tips: Only using for a few days. Full, light weight, face mask. Still have problem with expiration pressure and heat in mask upon expiration. Inspiration pressure is OK. Have to get used to it. Need a Bluetooth module to use SleepMapper iPad/iPhone app which I hope to get next week.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Central sleep apnea: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Obstructive Sleep Apnea: None
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 7 hr Daily
Advice & Tips: Make sure you are getting your machine and supplies from a reputable company. Use word of mouth or even use a DME that you are already familiar and comfortable with that you trust. I had to switch to BiPAP and when I did, I also switched my DME to the one who manages my mobility aids...I didn't know I could request them when I got the CPAP. Major, major difference! If I would only known...my nightmare CPAP experience would never have happened. All due to wrong size masks and tightening them down too much (because they were the wrong size).
