I was prescribed and given a Phillips dreamstation on Wednesday. The first two nights, I used whatever factory setting they had (heated hose at level 3 and humidity (I think) at level 3). I slept like absolute trash and ended up sleeping 2.5 hours my second night.
It was awful.
I found this subreddit and read some of the advice about desensitizing myself as well as reducing the heated hose to make the air cooler. OMG, That did the trick! I read for a few hours with it on those settings and then quickly fell asleep for 9 hours! AHI was 5.6 the night before and was 1.9 this morning! I actually feel like I got good sleep.
Thank you, so much!
