I had high hopes for my new CPAP machine. I plugged it in, put on the mask and away we went. Way too much air so I hit the "ramp" button which drops the air flow down to half and then slowly ramps it back up to your prescribed number in the next 30 minutes. By then I was used to the air flow so I didn't really struggle with that anymore.
But what I didn't like is all the stuff attached to my head. I know I'll get used to it but it felt uncomfortable last night. Plus I ended up with a red mark on my cheek which lasted half the day. I kept needing to yawn but that's near impossible with a hurricane blowing into your mouth. Then my nose kept itching and to scratch it I had to lift the mask off my face and that created another high wind to my neck area.
I did sleep in between changing positions. I even think I slept good when I was sleeping. So I do believe this will help, I just have to become accustomed to an octopus on my face blowing air into my nose and mouth.
