Tried out a CPAP last night and Iím not sure about that thing. I cannot figure out how Iím supposed to breathe using it.
Itís a new design that fits over your nostrils and Iím typically a nose breather (in/out) and itís tough to exhale with the air blowing up my nose.
If I exhale through my mouth, I end up with dry mouth and itís noisy as heck.
I was really hopeful that this thing would help, but Iím not so sure nowÖ

Try to use it while watching TV or reading at first and slowly you will get used to using it. I had to learn to keep my mouth shut while wearing it at night. It may seem difficult at first but it will pay huge dividends, I had no idea how poorly I was sleeping until I got my CPAP. No more headaches and groggy feeling when I wake up in the morning.

I ware the 1/2 mask with no problems sleeping. I don't know if I could wear the ones that just stick up your noise.

You know why women can't use a cpac?. They can't keep their mouths shut.

I tried 2 or 3 different masks. I finally settled on a Dream Wear under the nose and found it works best for me. I'm 13 months in and sleeping much better. The snoring has stopped.

Not gonna be comfortable or used to it at all after 1 night. Just give it time.

It's a huge change that will be very well worth it once you adjust to it.

Make yourself wear it. I'm 2.5 years into mine. I have to wear a full face mask because my nose stops up every night. Get use to it and you will feel so much better. Might even extend your life.

You must breathe through your nose for it to work. I have used one for 20 years and want even take a nap without it. If you breathe through your mouth you will get a dry sore throat. Prop your head up more to keep your mouth shut. After a while you will grab it every time you lay down.

It just takes time. If it has a setting to start with low pressure and gradually increase that might help.

Get with your CPAP supplier or sleep doctor and tell them the problem. I had that problem years ago and would not use one until they had a way to drop the pressure for exhaling. Most new machines should have some kind of programming that will allow for the exhaling.
And it will take time to get used to it.
For a long time I would swallow a lot of air, you know what that causes... anyway, someone finally told me how to prevent it and don't have any problems anymore.

As other have said, it takes time to get use to it. This isn't like getting a new pair of sun glasses or shoes, this is something that you have never worn in your life. Some people struggles 2-3 weeks and other 2-3 months. I fell into the latter group and at times I thought I would never get used to it. Don't give up. It will add years to your life.

I’ve had chronic sinus problems all my life. Consequently, I’m a mouth breather and hate it. I wake up feeling like the 3rd Marine Division marched through my mouth. Wife told me I have sleep apnea. No matter what I’ve tried I can’t learn to sleep with my mouth closed. Suxx.

I had a hard time with CPAP. Couldn't exhale. Sleep Dr tried the Bi Pap and I could exhale.
CPAP I'd same pressure on inhale and exhale

Bi Pap is bi level. Different pressure on inhale and exhale.

Auto pap is the machines algorithm adjusts the pressure automatically as needed

Like above, keep mouth shut and breathe through your nose only, you will get used to it pretty quickly and you will love it. Don't get me wrong, it takes a bit, but not too bad.

Itíll take a while to get use to it. But youíll be glad you did. When I did the sleep test they said I was getting 70 percent oxygen to my brain. Suppose to be 94 or something. Wife took videos of me at night to convince me to go. I would go through the motion of taking a breath but not getting any until around the 6th time. Then only very little. If I hadnít gotten one when I did I donít think Iíd be here now. I asked for a nose pillar type but have to have a chin strap to hold my mouth closed. Face use to be all red and tired all the time. Now Iím good. At first it felt like it was blowing so hard I felt like it was taking my breathe away. But I just keep putting it on and if I knocked it off just put it back on.

I think you can take a sleep test at home, rather than at a sleep lab which I had to do years ago where they hooked me up to electrodes and wires. I would get an MD to evaluate your home test results, recommend the best home test and set your pressure . My RX is a lifetime one, so I can order a new CPAP with it for life.

I use a full face mask and have a back up since the CPAP can go out on you like any machine. Also have a back up battery that can be charged with a solar charger or car charger durig power outages, as well as a wall outlet. I take generic Claratin daily to keep my nose unstopped. You will get tangled in your hose occasionally, but you will wake up and adjust it. I would be dead without it.

I've been using one for 25 years. Now I use the portable model that's has a battery. I have taken it climbing at 14k, napping in the duck blind, napping while glassing in the west, and use it at home. Only place I haven't used it is while in a tree. I use it for naps mainly because I'd make too much noise otherwise.

on another note, if you cant get used to the CPAP, go back and ask for a Bi pap. It senses you breathing out and decreases pressure until you are done, then builds back up. I have a bipap and i can not tell there is air being pushed in me. works amazing.

I use the transcend. Have their battery, plug and 12v charger and solar charger. I have it set on automatic and don't have problems with it. It's bigger than a deck of playing cards (they advertise it's not) but it works for me in almost all camping situations. It's not cheap. The battery is around 250. But I've used the same battery for about 5 years. I run it off the battery and keep the battery plugged in. I get about 1.7 nights to a charge so in the Backcountry I need to charge it every day. I'll probably buy another battery so I can have one charging while I use one.

Are you over weight? I would get a body composition done sand focus on your diet as weightloss.

Weight can have a lot to do with it but not the only issue. As I've gained weight mine hasn't gotten worse. As I've lost weight it hasn't gotten better. But I've always had a medium case. I can't imagine what a severe case would feel like.

I've tried every mouthpiece from $25 to $1700. None of them have worked for me. I am considering that implant but I'm not sold on it. It would be nice to take a nap and not snore badly and also sleep well when I don't have the device. Like waiting in the parking lot for my wife or while I'm driving long distances. That one's the hardest. I keep waking up and have to correct which lane I'm in.

I've tried every mouthpiece from $25 to $1700. None of them have worked for me. I am considering that implant but I'm not sold on it. It would be nice to take a nap and not snore badly and also sleep well when I don't have the device. Like waiting in the parking lot for my wife or while I'm driving long distances. That one's the hardest. I keep waking up and have to correct which lane I'm in.
Glad I'm not the only one
