"As of now I no longer have to use a chin strap.  I am anxious about the sleep study.  Wondering if I will be able to sleep WITHOUT the CPAP….even thought I hate it it is a part of every night now and is what I am used to.  "

"Thanks, Mary~  Fingers are crossed.  My pressure is one point lower than when I began (7) and AHI is some lower (7 day average).  I am anxious about sleep study as I have not slept without CPAP in 2.5 years!   "

"Last procedure done!  This time he gave me meds to take before so less anxiety while waiting!  For the first time I was able to eat normal food on the way home after the procedure.  No pain after 12 hours.  If it only works.…"

"Some folks run their humidifiers in passover mode- not turning on the heat just letting the air blow over the water.  That would not give any heat though. "

"Interesting, I actually feel a little better when I don't use the humidifier, but the humidifier helps with sinuses. The cold air stuff's me up. Gonna try running heat and a nasal spray"

"I have both.  I use the chin strap with my Wisp and I also have a FFM if I choose to use that one. I'm a mouth breather.  I find nasal masks are easier to fit without leaks"

Are you not getting enough humidity from your CPAP, 99?  Yes, it's nice to dream.  Sorry it was a bad ight, what happened?

i do not have a CPAP  humidifier, very difficult for it to be prescribed

i have had several sleepless nights

purchased a room humidifier arrived monday

first use of humidifier Monday night although again sleepless i somehow dreamed beautiful dreams

Why can't you get a CPAP humidifier prescribed 99?

therapist did not like idea

November buy my own

Bet the therapist doesn't suffer OSA themselves.  That's disgusting as you should have got one free on the NHS :(

99, you may need to look at a new therapist, I have never used a CPAP without a humidifer and heated hose and from what I've heard don't really want to.

i live in the UK and the NHS (National Health Service) do not work that way

Who are you with 99?  People over on our UK forum haven't said of problems getting a humidifier from their NHS clinics, although they do often have to ask as they're not always offered them without requesting them.

ROYAL GLAMMORGAN HOSPITAL LLANTRISANT

I don't have particular experience with this hospital 99, but I've not heard of any who have refused to give out a humidifier when needed.  Might be worth asking again, as you are entitled to one.
