Health Update

A few sundays ago, I fell asleep at the wheel of my car mid-day (thankfully Ellen my wife was with me and I swerved and unnerved her enough to wake me). 

Of course I scheduled a follow up sleep study to be done (amazing how booked up they are) and that is taking place this coming Monday - Tuesday.   It will probably result in my "pressure" being upped to around 15-18 on the machine; which is getting high.  Just wanted those of you that know me why I wouldn't be posting Monday afternoon in case anyone noticed :-)

I tried that, but still my mouth dropped open and I couldn't breath through them correctly. The NOSE ONLY mask in the picture has been replaced by a mouth and nose face mask, still I my jaw drops open and I need the strap.

As did my jaw, but stopped when using the Swift Large.
I don't know why, but it did.

Yes, for some reason I just could not breath with that in (I still have one), and had to switch to one that looks a lot like this one:

I had that in the begining...

The one in my original post, is actually me with my "nose only" mask, before switching to the one I just posted. I tried everything except the one that covers the entire face (I have dry eyes already and the would just make things worse).

Mine has a built in heated humidifier, also works great for night long
inhalation therapy....
Goodhart (author)  iceng5 years ago
despite the humidifier, the air blowing over my already dry eyes, still dried them out further

Yes, mine is equipped with one of those also. It is old enough not to have a "removable memory" card, but not so old that it is loud. It is very quiet.
I have this same mask.
