I thought CPAP's were a bunch of crap. I was wrong. The test showed I had an oxygen saturation levels of 86-87 during sleep. Not good. Basically not enough oxygen going to the brain. (see there is a specific reason why I am so scattered brain)
CPAPS are wonderful, awesome advances in technology. First time in 55 years I have slept with my mouth closed. Why? because it feels like a huge wind tunnel from your nose to your mouth if you don't close your mouth. It is wonderful to wake up feeling like I have actually gotten some rest. Not sluggish and exhausted. It is wonderful to get to mid day and not be totally exhausted. It is wonderful to not spend the entire day yawning. I don't toss and turn all night long and wake up at least 6-7 times. It is AWESOME to only be breathing warm humidified air.
But most important is that the Ranger is now getting good sleep. No more rhino sounds, no more tossing and turning because the person next to you is so restless.
Oh, the little pillow nose thing was slightly annoying at first but now it is fine, except when your nose is runny. Then it is gross.
I will have to think about a design for when people have colds.
