Claude replied to Noreen LaVallo's discussion Where to put the Cpap: Higher or lower than the bed?

Claude replied to Mike's discussion Does CPAP Weaken Tongue?
"I agree with you. I can't even imagine not using my CPAP at night. I can't sleep soundly at all if I for some reason don't use it, which is not too often. I go into panic mode at just thinking that I may stop breathing; my snoring…"

Claude replied to wayne fleming's discussion STOMACH FILLED WITH AIR !!
"I'd rather wake up in the morning with "aerophagia" than not wake up at all.  I suppose there are certain trade-offs for being able to stay alive or not."

Claude replied to Glenn Watson's discussion cannot get used to my CPAP- very frustrated!!
"I too, thought I would never get used to the CPAP, but here I am 7 years later, and now can't sleep without it.  I am a stubborn person, and kept on trying until I found the right mask and pillow to get a good nights sleep. I just recently…"

Claude replied to Darillyn Patterson's discussion STOPPING FACE MASK LEAKING
"All these articles have prompted me to try a new mask.  I currently have the res-med full (nose and mouth) face mask.  I've decided to try the Hybrid Full Face  with Nasal Pillows and see what happens.  I hope it…"

Claude replied to Mike's discussion Medications People Use to Sleep?
"1 Tramadol and 2 Ibuprofen, and make sure no leaks in my mask.  I suck on vitamin C chewables to keep my mouth and throat from drying out too much."

Claude replied to Mike's discussion Can a Night Light Make You Fat?
"I tend to agree with you about the light and eating at night-although I do have a weight problem. My problem is due to limited activity because of back & hip arthritis problems. Safety is important, and we, like you, would never fall asleep…"

Claude replied to RockRpsgt's discussion How To Properly Fit a Mask. From a Techs Point of View.
"I have a question: when my mask leaks, it is always on the sides of my mouth kind of by the cheekbones.  something starts "flapping" and wakes me up.  Could that indicate the mask is too big?  I have a hard time fitting the…"

Claude replied to Mike's discussion CPAP Alert Service - OnStar for CPAPers
"I know I'm going to be the 'dumb' one in this conversation, but here goes. I have no idea how to get this type of information off of my machine, if it even gives it, that is. I know my mask leaks sometimes, because it wakes me up. I…"
