Received an email survey from Phillips. They basically wanted my opinion on what sounded like a good name for a new mask. There was no place to type a response….I wanted to say who th check cares what it is called if it worked!!!!See More
"This is not quite the same as the one that was done 10 years ago in a hospital OR. It is done over 6 months each a month apart and then is repeated yearly. All done in an MD's office with no sedation etc. Just a local to the tongue. Took…"
"I wish I'd seen this three months ago and would be the first to acknowledge that the plural of anecdote is not data, but I had this procedure a decade back and was off CPAP for a few years but it wasn't worth it. My doctor no longer…"
Medicare started covering oral appliances for sleep apnea in January, 2011 if certain conditions were met. These conditions included a face-to-face meeting with a doctor who prescribed a sleep study, a Medicare approved oral appliance, etc.I met the conditions in 2011, and my regular dentist made the device. I self-filed to Medicare, and, after 6 months, Medicare finally paid. A close relative of mine met the conditions in mid-2012, and his dentist made the appliance. He self-filed, and after…See More
"I liked the way it fit over the nose but the headgear was not comfy for me. It's always something!!!! It did not seem to stay in place well for me. We have lots of income tax deductions, don't we?? I can get…"
"Glad you feel better this AM. People that do not have sleep apnea do not know how fortunate they are. They just get ready for bed and fall into it. We have so much preparation and then the mental anguish of wondering what kind of a…"

"Ginny, you're so sweet. The CPAP can certainly be difficult at times. Mainly the mask. Last night I was clear and used the nasal mask all night. I've had sinus woes since childhood. When I first go to bed…"
Hi folks, I've just written and posted a new article on CPAP therapy at the site Squidoo.com. Would you mind taking a look and giving me feedback? Let me know if you have any suggestions or comments. Thanks everyone.
I think you've written an excellent article. It's well researched, thorough and interesting. but sadly is drawing attention away from this SG site where the article should have been posted you already have adverts and now this you want everything and that is not fair or just.
sure you want to make a living but do not be so obvious
99 the important thing is that the article got written, posted, and sleepguide received a link to it. There are many great apnea forums out there. I would suggest that you check a few of them out as they all have great information. Sleepguide is a great site and we need to keep up our diplomatic relations with the rest of the sleep community.
