Sleep study

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

If any of you all snore loudly, wake up groggy, your other half says you stop breathing in your sleep, or you are tired during the day get checked for sleep apnea. I've known about sleep apnea for years but it never really sunk in hire serious it is. I'm sure I will be sleeping with a machine for a long time, if not forever & it will take some getting used to, but the benefits are worth it.
It took me a couple weeks to get used to mine, it's been over 10 years now and I can't sleep without it. It gets to be routine.

Wait till the condensation builds up in the night and runs in your nose. Wakes you up real quick. Waterboard is what comes to mind.

I've learned to run the hose under the blanket and next to my body to try to cut down on the condensation. Water builds up in the tube and it will get noisey.
My cousin was telling me about the condensation.

You guy's with the condensation build up, raise or lower your heat settings and put you unit lower than your bed. That way the condensation flows back to the machine when excessive. The blanket trick works for me as well. Have been using mine for 7 years.

My ex-wife who is a respitory therapist at a big hospital and I went and they told me I needed it. When i got to the medical equipment place the person that sets it up said that my readings were to low for any machine and they would set it at the lowest setting. They also told me that they get alot of people like my with low readings that are sent and do not really need the machine, the ex-wife tells me know that it is a big rage among doctors so they can make more money.

Maybe in some cases it's a Raid on Medicare, but would you take the chance?

My machine is set on "2" but I have no comment there as they never told me why or what that means. It works and I'd recommend it for all you guys.

Just have to be patient with it at first. Won't be long you'll be addicted like me.

I don't snore. I breath heavy.
It's what I tell my wife all the time.

When I sleep on my back, which happens once in a blue moon, I wake myself up snoring. #-o 99.9% of the time I sleep on my stomach. Cuts the noise down dramatically. Plus I sleep with my mouth closed, otherwise I dry out and get sick.

MY wife complains about my snoring, truth be told its her.
