"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!   "

"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"

"All - I have the solution. Because it's summer, and hot, the HUMIDITY setting should be set to ZERO. Once I did that, the heat plate did not heat up. Yai!! Also, I was told there is no need to put water in the container."

Hi All, I need help. I've only had this machine for 2 months. I use it at level 12, as prescribed by my Sleep Study Doctor and have not had any problems with it since raising the level to 12.
