>Another one is the Oracle. Works in a similar way.<
From my web searching on the subject, the Oracle is an oral
a nasal interface. It blows the air in through your mouth instead of through your nose. Use of a heated humidifier with the Oracle is kinda mandatory, as you can imagine...
The CPAP Pro is a nasal
interface with no headgear. From what I've seen, it is nasal pillows, essentially attached to a "doctor's night guard" type dental appliance - the kind of thing your dentist would prescribe for teeth-grinders.
I can see the possibility of drooling with it, but I drool now anyway, so "what's the diff?"
I'm currently using (or not, 'cause it's not comfortable and comes off while I sleep) a Breeze with nasal pillows. If I wear it all night, my nostrils are sore. It won't stay put, 'cause I'm a side-and-stomach sleeper.
I've done a search of both "cpap pro" and "cpappro" on this site as suggested, and I see some negative feedback but some very positive.. I don't see that most of the feedback is negative, just that most of the anecdotal references are negative, like "my doctor said it can cause TMJ" or "most of the feedback is negative," but I don't see anyone that posted "I tried it and it gave me TMJ" or "it made me soak my pillow with drool so I had to stop using it." I did see one person say they were a mouth-breather so they needed to wear a chin strap with it. That doesn't sound like negative feedback to me,.
How TMJ or even awkward positioning of your mouth/teeth/jaws could happen from an upper-teeth appliance, I don't know. The jaw is attached to the lower teeth, last I checked. Most you'd have different is your jaws wouldn't close 100%, just like when wearing a "doctor's night guard."
By the way, a site search for "cpap pro" gives a bunch of stuff for things not CPAP-Pro related, and "cpappro" gives 2 hits. I don't see how that translates to "plenty of info."
Plus, I saw at least two posts relating direct experience where they are happy with the device, and none relating direct experience with negative results. The negative ones are, as I said above, anecdotal, like the negative posts in this thread.
I plan on doing more googling before I make a decision, but I had to jump in with my 2 pennies.
