Welcome aboard, Dave. I see you use the Simplicity simple nasal cushion too. I love mine. Its worked better for me than any mask I've tried. I have 2L of 02 bled into my line.

But I'm using the Resmed VPAP Auto. I have COPD but, thank God, have not needed the ST at all.

So, confuse me some more, are you a sleep professional - or not? Your profile not only says you have OSA, but also someone you love does and that you are a sleep pro and other to boot.

I'm just an apnean. A sleep apnea patient. But not a very patient patient.

Welcome to the Sleepguide community.

We are a group of patients and professionals that are interested in sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can contribute to a number of health issues, that if not treated can lead to serious consequences for those that have sleep apnea.

We work together to help those that are struggling with their therapy to find solutions to their issues that they may have. Various treatment options are available, with cpap/apap therapy probably being among the least invasive for those with severe sleep apnea.

Please feel free to join in the discussions and participate in the forum.
