There has been a very interesting thread on CPAPs and now I would like to ask about BiPAPs. I have been on a CPAP for about a year. Last night I had a second sleep study and it started with me using a BiPAP. I had a horrible time with it. I felt it restricted my breathing and I could not stay asleep. Kept waking with a feeling of panic. Later into the night I woke and realized I was breathing easily and then drifted back to sleep. When I woke this morning I felt so relaxed and was still breathing easily. The Techie told me that he had switched me back to CPAP during the night because I was fighting the BiPAP so much. They did increase me from 12 to 14 pounds of pressure.
Have any of you made the switch successfully? At this stage I want to stay with the CPAP. And included that in my notes about the sleep study for the doctor.
