I have a full face mask which is fairly comfortable and seems to fit well but my husband has noticed that I am snoring at night during the early morning hours with the mask on. My machine says the mask is fitting well (smiley face) and the score is always low ... 1.9 etc. Is there no need to worry or should I make an appt. with my doctor? Thanks, Janie

sounds like you need some very minor tweaking since things are otherwise going so well for you.  i'd ask the doctor to bump up the pressure a centimeter or so and see if that resolves the problem.  maybe your pressure is not quite high enough to eliminate all snoring. 

ideally it should be though.


I would check your numbers very carefully during the last 2 hours of your sleep. This is when we receive our peak REM sleep. Look for upward spikes in your numbers during this time. If your apnea is more "REM Specific" you may want to try an auto-setting with a VERY small range.


Snoring does not always mean that there is a problem. If you feel good, numbers are good, and the snoring is not bothering anyone I would not worry about it.
