I am a "newbie" to sleep apnea and this community forum, so I am still learning the correct terminology for things here. Could you tell me what type of mask the Airfit P10 is? I just had my second sleep study, and it didn't go well in the least. Even though I was very happy when the technician placed a very small and lightweight nasal mask on my face, he told me that if I opened my mouth at all, he would have to replace it with a full-face mask. I think that major anxiety kicked in that night, because I was simply concentrating on keeping my mouth totally shut (and I am a mouth breather, not a nose breather by nature). Needless to say, I am really sorry that I did not sleep the way I normally do -- mouth probably hanging open and everything. I didn't get my second sleep study results yet; I am kind of afraid to know what I will find out. Normally, I am in bed for about 15-16 hours per night; have you ever heard of such craziness? For the longest time, I thought I couldn't get up and even function if I were not in bed until exactly 11 am. So far, I have yet to meet anyone here who is actually in bed for that long; I kicked myself out of bed a half hour early today, knowing that I had to move around earlier, since the mere act of remaining in bed for so long probably takes its toll on an apneic individual.
Right now, I am seeking out advice on the best, "appropriate" type of mask for me -- since I know that everyone is different and has different needs.
I am sorry to ramble, but I think I just had some things on my mind that I needed to get off my chest.
I am extremely happy to know about your improvements, and you also bring much hope and encouragement to me.
Have a great (and well-rested) day!
