waterboarding at 4 AM
Posted by: space-time
Date: September 30, 2010 12:45PM
4 AM, I was happily sleeping, then suddenly my CPAP maks filled with water when I turned from one side to another. Not funny.

what happened was I believe the humidifier for the CPAP machine was set too high, and water was condensating inside the CPAP tube, and when I turned, the tube moved and all that water spilled inside the mask, and in my nostrils.

I suspect the baby might have turned the humidifier knob too high, but then again it is my fault for not checking the settings every night.

Is everything in your house is connected to that one clogged drain!?

I'd check for new life insurance policies held by family members.

I'd take these signs as a warning to not go on a cruise anytime soon. Water is the bane of your existence this week for sure. smiling smiley

Yowza.. that's a toughie.

Worse was my early morning wakeups from aspirating... well, let's just say they were wet burps and leave it at that.

My wife got used to me leaping out of bed choking and dash to the bathroom. She referred to it as "Male Menopause Morning Sickness".

Glad you're OK.

I did LOL at Phil's response, but if it makes you feel any better, my mom's CPAP tried to drown her once or twice when she first got it. Sorry you have to wear it at all, but hopefully this won't happen again.

I was pretty interested until I saw the $139 price tag. Youch!

Btw, how often do you guys change out your cpap mask? I find that after a few months the soft rubber around the edges doesn't hold a seal as well.

my insurance covers mask, tube, air filters (sometimes 2, sometimes 6?) and the water reservoir every 6 months, no cost to me, no deductible.

they also let me exchange the mask in 30 days if I don't like the model. I started one year go, and I just got my 3rd maks, and seems better that the previous 2 models, but they were also good. just looking for the perfect mask.

CPAPs are for people who have, erm, trouble snoring and, uh... suffer from sleep apnea.
How bad does that have to be before you qualify for one?

My wife has had success with a home-made synthetic fleece insulating cover for the hose. It also helps if she has the machine lower than the top of the bed so condensation in the hose runs back down into the machine.
