Yes I do have the under the nose nasal mask. Tried it for a few minutes but wasn't too sure. I should try it again. Is that the one you are talking about Apple203?

Nothing actually goes in your nose.

I went through Apria and they said I had to be a person that breathes through the nose and keeps their mouth shut the whole time they sleep. I was like... I am not sure if I open my mouth or not... lol

It takes time to adjust. Just stick with it, eventually you will hate sleeping without it. When I don’t use mine I feel horrible. The only time it gives me problems now is if I’m sick.

For those having trouble, do you have an auto adjusting APAP machine, or a fixed pressure CPAP machine? And do you have the ramping option? If you dont have these features, could be why you are having trouble.
For the record, I am no expert with only one night under my belt so far, but it went pretty well. Went down from API 65.5 to 9.6. So I still have some work to do. Oh, and the heated air hit my cold bedroom and I had condensation problems until I moved the machine to the floor.

Hi. I'm still having so much trouble with the CPAP machine. I just kept trying thinking it would get better. I was furious with it last night. So much full-on pressure right away and my head gear twisting this way and that causing my nasal pillows to move and blast loud air. I got up to see if I have ramp option (I had it a decade ago and I didn't have this struggle). So, thank you for mentioning it bc there is RAMP but it is off and I can't turn it on. I'm going to call American Home Patient about it. Thank you again. This just may help me.

Hope it better for you last night @KatFight! I've used my new machine now 6 nights in a row for just about 8 hours a night. Its not perfect: at least once every night the mask slips and it sounds like a tornado landed in my bedroom, which wakes us and the dog up. :rolleyes: BUT, overall, I am feeling more rested already. sleep apneas still hovering at 8-9 per hour -- hope surgery takes care of that!

I have used mine for about a month now.... and amazed at how much better I feel. I'm down to about 2 episodes a night and looking forward to seeing how the surgery changes this. Would love to get off of it, but feeling so much better (no daytime naps) makes it worth the effort.

Did you have an overnight sleep test with your sleep doctor? If not you may need to. When I got my recent CPAP, the insurance company would not pay for the overnight test and just approved the machine for me and the doctor could only pretty much guess what the settings would need to be. It's only when the doctor told the insurance company that the guessing waan't working that they approved the overnight test, but once he found the proper settings I've been sleeping great ever since.
You need to contact your sleep doctor and check into either having the sleep test or getting your settings adjusted. Also, talk to your weight loss surgeon and let him/her make the determination regarding whether you need the CPAP in working condition before the surgery or not.

No, my straps were fine. It was the pressure they had to adjust. I also had them turn the heat off since I'm in SoCal and it's not cold enough to need it.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
