I know I'm feeling much better in the 3 years I've been using mine.

Agreed. 

Recently, I was not sleeping well some nights.  I realized the hose I was using had the inner liner collapsing on the end at the machine.  At some angles, it was nearly choking off the flow.  Once I realized what was happening, I reversed the hose around and then switched to my spare.  I have a new hose coming this week.  Never seen a hose do that before.  Only change lately has been using one of those ozone disinfectant cleaners.

My wife couldn't handle my snoring.  After a few years of sleeping in a different room on an air bed, I went in for a apnea test.  Results:  severe apnea.   sad

Average apnea events per hour:  5.  Mine:  Over 30.  With my CPAP mask:  2 to 5.

It's better to not need it, but if you do need it it makes a huge difference in your sleep, and might literally be a life saver.

When I had my test back in.... 2015? Same night as the Baltimore riots... turned out I was having upwards 60-70 events an hour. Essentially I was breathing about 1/3rd of the time, and suffocating the other 2/3ds.

The new machine I've been using since late last year has an app that tracks usage statistics, including events per hour.

In the last month, however, I've had only 8 days where I've had more than 1 registered apnea event per hour; most days it's in the .3 to .5 per hour range, and one day I had zero apnea events.

Last night was an odd one for me, though... just could not get comfortable with the mask. Turned into a very restless night all around, and I just looked and I averaged air leakage of 46 liters a minute. That's MUCH higher than anything I've had going on; most nights I'm in the 20 liters or less range for leakage.

Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

I slept, but I slept like crap.

The first night in a strange bed is generally a night of little to no sleep.
