Son of CPAP

This is the follow-up to my previous cpap entry. After watching the footage I saw how horrible the mask was fitted to my face.... The straps were all tangled and stuff. Plus, the method I used for putting the mask on was not quite how it was designed to be done. Oh well, I learn.

Video Here

All that annoying equipment for a good nights rest huh? I would think that that thing would make it harder to sleep.

man! that thing is insane. though i feel this video went full circle. the cpap makes you look like scorpious, and your crazy man at the end was very scorpious-like.
so is this the end of crazy snoring???

Yes, the end of snoring. Impossible to snore when your mouth is chin-strapped shut.

good to hear that the brain cloud is gone, screw the waponis.

Luther, I thank you for that reference. That is where the term brain cloud came from. When I heard it I realized it perfectly described the way I felt.

Wow! Hope it works out great for you. This is the first I'd heard about this machine. Will check out your other entry on the subject.

My two brothers have used the device. One swears by it... and one swears at it...

Good luck and be sure to give it some time and adjustment.

Wow, that thing looks like some kind of ancient medieval torture device.

Brad, I struggled with all kinds of masks for the past few years. I had ones that only went in my mouth, ones that only went over my nose, full-face masks. None of them worked for me. i would push them off at night while I slept, and loathed putting them on. Finally, I heard a commercial on the radio for a mask that had no straps, and it has been great. Check out http://www.nomask.com . The only issue with this mask is that you have be able trim the excess plastic from the mouth guard, but I had my dentist do it for a few bucks. If your current mask works, go with it, but if you are up for a change, check this one out.
