I have mild apnea but I am still tired at the morning. I rarely snore and have narrow nose passages. I tried CPAP with pressures from 4cm to 7cm, but I couldn’t sleep with the face mask for more than 30 minuets. My pulse oximeter ring showed bigger oxygen drops with the CPAP than without the CPAP!
- Does CPAP supposed to help people with apnea that don’t snore and why? I can understand that CPAP can help people that snore because the pressure keeps the airways open, but why should it help people that do not snore?
- A small survey for people that have apnea and rarely snore: Do you have obstructive apnea or central? What device do you use and what is your pressure settings?
- What would you recommend for me to try next?
