My new CPAP mask has arrived. It is one of a very different type that I am trying – the DreamWear FitPack Nasal Mask I’ve recently been having skin problems, particularly on my forehead, where my normal CPAP mask has a silicon pad to support…

Random observations regarding my sleep. I’ve got a sleep clinic appointment coming up next week, so this is currently on my mind. Sometimes I wake up early in the morning, and manage to roll over and go back to sleep. However, I find that the…

Last week I wrote about the exorbitant price of CPAP masks, and sourcing cheaper options. Having tried my new mask for a few nights, I declared it a success, and decided to buy a couple more, to put away. However, by this time, the eBay…

A couple of weeks ago, my CPAP mask broke unexpectedly. Having said that, it is something I wear every night, and it is subject to being squashed between my face and a pillow quite often, so it is going to break sooner or later. I…

Good grief. Just received a very pleasant email from the good folk at Intus Healthcare, who supply me with CPAP equipment for my sleep apneoa. Turns out that Google are hassling them over a link I have in my blog sidebar. They interpret the links…

I have a sleep apnea appointment in a week’s time, at Papworth. As a result, I have just downloaded data from my AutoPAP, to prove I remember how to do it – I will do it again the morning of my appointment. The geek factor…

I’ve got an appointment at my sleep clinic next week, so I thought I’d better download the data from my CPAP machine. Last time I did this was before my desktop got replaced with a Windows 7 64-bit machine, so I was hoping not to…

A while back I posted about the Sleepweaver, a new kind of cloth CPAP mask. I definitely found it interesting, but gave up using it for two reasons. Firstly, there is only one size, and I found it a little small, although that didn’t stop…

Knowing that there are one or two other CPAP users here, I thought that this might be of interest. I’ve just taken delivery of a radical (at least to me!) new nasal mask called SleepWeaver. Unlike conventional masks, this is made of soft fabric, and…

[Note: thankfully this issue has now been resolved]

After it got dark, I was able to do the final test, and the answer is a minor *sigh*.

I really don’t know what it is about equipment manufacturers and backlit keys and displays, especially for machines meant for the bedroom. Am I the only one who thinks the bedroom should be relatively dark?

I realise that I have been posting a lot about my CPAP lately – obviously, it has been on my mind at lot. If all goes well, this will be my last such post for a while.

The nonsense with Papworth Hospital unfortunately continues, emphasising to me that you can think an organisation is really great (I’ve had no complaints in 10 years), but it only takes one major foulup and a total lack of will to fix it to completely change…
