wow. That looks uncomfortable. Is that a nightly occurrence?

Every night, and it's actually pretty comfortable. It beats not sleeping. I know that @benfrank will back me up on that.

Sleep apnea FTW. I hate that mask thing, so I've opted for nasal pillows.

gfmorris says:
I'm a stomach/side sleeper and would dislodge nasal pillows in a flash. With the mask, I can full on hibernate if I want, which I do in winter.

is the full facial piece standard now? I remember when I had one that it was just the nose

Matthew_Moore says:
@andrew they have all sorts of crazy masks you can get now.

gfmorris says:
Yeah, the full mask allows you to mouth breathe if you're stopped up. I mean, having a cold with the old style of CPAP just stunk on ice. I've only ever used the nose one once, and that was for my second NPSG ... took me about a half-hour to get the in-nose, out-mouth rhythm down.

@gfmorris i dont open my mouth at all now. in and out the nose. took some getting used to the breathing against the pressure but i'm down now.

I know and have known lots of folks who use CPAP successfully, and I'll probably end up with one someday. I'd like to be able to sleep all night and wake well rested.

Matthew_Moore says:
My machine has a release of some nature (I'm not sure what it's technically called) where the pressure backs off when it gets resistance, so I don't do any mouth breathing. Who knew your disorder would bring us all together! Maybe we need a sleep apnea team ;)

That is some crazy get-up! I do agree with @pip, fighter pilot.

I think we'll need to have a CPAP theme. I roll with the pap, too.

@matthew_moore @benfrank @mackle I agree ... team CPAP FTW!

Well, better make it Team Apnea, since @benfrank has that BIPAP stuff.

@jnonfiction Only if untreated.

The lighting in this make me think you aren't voluntarily wearing that mask.
