    Hi Clive
    Yes he is mouth breathing your right, as only has nasal pillows and a chin strap to help keep mouth closed. But he is sleeping 7-8 hours of a night with it, I was just curious why he was making the noise. It makes me wonder if he is getting the full benefit of this then ??? Thanks Clive your so informative xxx Ang

    Hi Ang

    Mick is doing very well sleeping 7-8 hours per night. If the morning headaches have gone and he is not falling asleep several times during the day it is working. The nasty headaches caused by CO2 in the blood are the main test.

    Hi Clive,
    Yes his morning headaches and neck pain (which we thought was muscle pain) has gone, the neck pain was due to the way he was breathing. Like you though for the first week or so we were only getting approx 2-3 hours which was really tough but now he actually can't wait to get on it of a night and he is a sleep in minutes. And no sleepiness during the day where as before as soon as he got up he was falling asleep again. Just more breathless during the day now and of course those swollen ankles which we are seeing our docs about on Monday,thanks for putting our mind at ease, it really has xx Ang
