Common Questions and Answers about Cpap machines uk


233622 tn?1279338505 I tried a lot of CPAP machines before buying one. Usually your insurance will have you "rent" them before buying. This way you not only find out what suits you best, but also you avoid having your DME provider pass off a lemon to you. If the machine makes strange noises or in any way seems defective, give it back and ask for another one - I know I did that and I'm glad I did!! My current machine is very, very quiet and has had no problems. I'm sure it was new and not rebuilt.
1218873 tn?1300094816 The subject line c**p stands for CPAP, right? I've used a CPAP machine for my OSA for 3 years, and it has made all the difference. Pointers: If your insurance makes you rent a machine for a time, that is sort of useful. Try it for a while, and then do TONS of online research at the mail order providers. A CPAP support forum i frequent has tons of people moaning about how their insurance companies and the DME companies have limited their choices and ripped them off terribly.
12080135 tn?1453631171 As for the snoring, have you had a test for sleep apnea? A few of us here use CPAP machines although it isn't necessarily related to MS. There are a lot of emotions after a diagnosis, I bounced around from denial, fear, loneliness and depression. Especially in the first 6 months. It was in that period that I started seeing a counsellor to try to wrap my mind around everything. It was during therapy that I figured out a plan to live with MS.

Before taking supplements, you should request your physician to perform one of the common blood clotting tests, to determine if your blood is clotting normally. I would do this before taking alpha-lipoic acid or ginkgo baboa. You shoiuld also request a hematocrit. An abnormal hematocrit if often a cause of abnormal blood pressure.
Avatar f tn I'm glad that they have gotten you started on the IV infudions.It is a big shock to the body.Are they giving you the 1000mgs at one time? My first infusions was done 4 times a day at 250 mgs,the second set of infusions was twice a day at 500mgs and the last one done a week and a half ago was 1500 mgs at once for 3 days. I don't like the ports,the last one was done very nicely and it didn't bother me. The taste is nasty,drink lots of water. Get some rest.
Avatar m tn are you being treated for your sleep apnea with either a CPAP or BiPAP. You probably are...I am wondering if you keep your sats up at nightime these days even with CPAP. Something to consider... I hope that you get answers soon...
Avatar n tn , while today this problem is better understood and treated with mouthpieces, CPAP machines, etc. Looking back, Howard Hughes was a classic sufferer of OCD, but that ailment wasn't sufficiently understood during his time. In my experience, that's where we are with the problem being described on this page. Here is my own story: I first began to wake up suddenly (usually bolting upright as others have said and often screaming and/or gasping) in the summer of 2006.
Avatar n tn The easiest and cheapest way is to insist that the Dr. does the regular AND the CPAP in the same night, when they wake you up say around 2 or 3 to see if air pressure solves apnea if you are prone to it. Doing it over 2 different nights I feel is a waste of money and shows how parts of the medical system milks you and the insurance company to bill twice. D) have sex. It will relax your body and help you possibly get a deeper night of sleep absent other issues.
Avatar f tn But I don't want to risk damaging my eyesight until I know it's safe to use. If you have apnea, the CPAP seems to be the treatment of choice. They diagnose a lot of that at the UCSD Sleep Center I went to. People have had amazing results using the oxygen at night, and it can really change your life and improve it considerably. So if that was recommended treatment--it's worth a try. Mine is more of a body clock issue, and needs light to reset the neurotransmitters properly.
147426 tn?1317269232 I had a sleep disorder test done recently and found out I have severe sleep apnea and since I have used my CPAP machine this week the symptoms are beginning to fade and I feel better. The medical profession states that it is possible to get lesions from lack of oxygen during the sleep apnea.
2214462 tn?1339431583 Cortisol normally lowers at night when and while you are sleeping? So I don't really understand that comment. Apnea is caused by a lot of things from sinus issues to weight to...
Avatar f tn Even moving the jaw several millimeters is apparently enough to open the airway to eliminate apnea. I did talk to a CPAP specialist and she said CPAP helps, but the surgery is the cure. Well, in my case, it should have been, but I trusted a hack, so now everything is worse. I wont lie to you, its a tough surgery. I do believe my recovery was very hard because the vault collapsed and I was in remarkable pain for so long.
Avatar m tn (should have mentioned, I'm getting a second opinion at the Royal Manchester eye hospital, which is the place to go for eyes in my neck of the woods. It's the UK, though, so it will probably take a couple of months to get seen, now it's down as non-urgent). Here's another question. How big are your spots? If I hold my arm outstretched, mine are about half the size of a fingertip. I know that's a bit vague, but I don;t know how else to rate them.
Avatar n tn I took a digital blood pressure cuff with me and took my pressure regularly--still do. At first, I had to stay below 120/60. I secretly started lifting light weights on circuit machines about 3 months post dissection, mostly just testing the blood pressure, seeing where I could go, what elevated my pressure. At 5 months, with no change in the occlusion (per MRA), I was officially cleared to lift as well as continue to do cardio.
