Please don't jump. I just got this no mask and will not be able to use it. The exhaust ports are VERY noisy, at least 10x more than the air noise from my current mask. The ports also blew air all over my face, it was the small air leaks on my current mask that I was trying to get away from . It was like someone blowing a compressor hose all over my face. I give you that a mask is uncomfortable but the no mask is intollorable. I gave it a try of about 1.5 hrs. and then gave up. Also sometimes the air would not come through the nose pieces, into my nose and I would be suffercating. Don't know why that should happen. I am just out $156, --Senior discount. I have had medic training, am mechanically inclined and very good at figuring how things work, so don't think I'm inept. I am very upset.ShineOn wrote:Sue, thanks for posting your experience.
I was wondering, I've seen mention that the exhaust ports are kinda noisy - not "whisper quiet" like they advertise. Is that true in your experience with the CPAP PRO?
The only other complaint I've found so far is that it's not as easy to get parts as it is for other interfaces. Probably because the manufacturer isn't one of the "big guns" like Respironics or Puritan Bennett so most apnea device providers don't resell it. My provider doesn't, and also said that another patient had talked them into ordering one for them and that patient returned it to them almost immediately. They didn't tell me why, though, but it's not a product they resell so of course they're not about to recommend it.
I suppose it's like anything else - there are folx that will love it and folx that will hate it. I think I'd like it but I'm still not ready to jump.
