    Anyone use CPAP machines?

    Just wondering if any of you use a CPAP machine and did not have a sleep study conducted? What has your experience been? Are they hard to use?

    Stan Efferding recommends getting one and discusses how it has improved his quality of life and it got me curious.

    I don’t but I do have a deviated septum and have difficulty breathing well through my nose. I’ve tried nose plug devices that keep your nostrils open. They feel weird and fall out which is too bad because they really improve my breathing. I also have a fan that blows at my face which helps (maybe it provides 1-2cmH2O of Cpap instead of the 5+ from a machine?).

    That is what I would recommend, I’d be careful with cpap if you don’t need it. It is probably harmless but technically, adding pressure to your lungs transfers that pressure to your lung vessels which increases right ventricular afterload (the pressure your right ventricle has to ouch against to move blood).

    I don’t know what affect this would have long term (if any) but I’d only use cpap if a doc recommended, not Stan “only eat beef” efferding.

    To counter myself, hypoxia and apnea can cause pulmonary hypertension too.

    I have had a study and had to use after. It takes some getting used to, and def don't sleep too much cause can leave marks across your face depending on what mask or nose pillow you use. I didn't even know I had it until ex complained about my snoring. Then told me I stop breathing as she'd shake me. Then I knew there was something to it, but I still didn't care. But it's made me sleep and wake up so much better. Overall glad I decided to give it and get it

    I've had one for like 10 years, but had a sleep study done.

    If you don't have sleep apnea not sure why you would want one.

    It's not a great conversation starter when you sleep with a chick for the first time.

    I use one. I was excited to get it once diagnosed, so I got used to it quickly. I feel like I can't sleep without it.

    DId a sleep study in july. Found out I have sleep apnea. Used machine for 2 months until 2 weeks ago. Found out allergic to mask causing face and nose to become red. tfw a few weeks ago a teacher asked me if I was punched in the face. Redness went away though. I ordered a non silicon mask and its still not here. I hate the machine though. Im single now and every day I think to my self that I will never get laid again. Think about it

    You bring a girl to your home, shes gonna spend the night. You are like brb babe let me put my mask on. Shes like wtf?? All of a sudden she remembers she has to turn in a hw assignment and has to leave. You are confused and almost high because of the mask. She leaves and you pass out. You wake up wondering if any of that was real. For real though imagine dating with one. Then come back to me

    Stan Efferding looks and sounds like he's about to explode any minute from high BP. Can see him needing one although he should probably try to add in some cardio or cut down on the red meat/tech intake first.

    A friend of mine uses one, he's very overweight and has horrible cardio/VO2 max. I honestly think VO2 max and bodyweight is the best predictor of needing one of these machines. Most people could probably fix their problem by just getting their heartrate up for an extended period a few times per week.

    Explain it only if she asks. Put in on after you turn the lights out. Take it off before sun-up and snooze. On the other hand, you can leave it off and snore and gasp all night. That's pretty attractive.

    Use one. Definite game changer. Book a sleep study and find out if you’re suffering from it. If you are, the mask takes a week or so to get used to. If you’re finding mask indentations an issue, pad a cheek makes good liners. Good luck.

    Yeah man, I just don't bust it out until after sex. Then they just don't want you to leave.

    I remember one time I had it in my car (I put it in an overnight bag when I think there will be sexors), and after we were done with sex, I told her I had to get something from my car. I came back, and she was so happy I was back she couldn't have cared less about the c-pap. She thought I was bailing after sex.

    Really I've never had a woman have a negative reaction about it, but it's still annoying to have to explain.

    my last gf made me believe that if I went vegan I could conquer sleep apnea (and diabetes and ulcerative ****tis) even said she herself was on her way to sleep apnea and diabetes until she went vegan. What a bitch. Never in my life have I known such a bitch. It's like "SHEESH WHAT A BITCH!!!!!!!!!" that much I'm tellin' you.

    Good for me I don't do ONS even if I could pull them. So it'd have to be someone I've been dating and can see myself in a committed relationship with first.

    That's what keeps me from explaining it to a woman staying over...

    If you don't have sleep apnea not sure why you would want one.

    It's not a great conversation starter when you sleep with a chick for the first time.
    lol, yes I think it would be a deal breaker . I look like Bane when I sleep now.

    But it’s heiped ,as my blood cell count is now in check. You just have to find that happy place where the mask fits but doesn’t leak .
    To tight ,and it’s uncomfortable. It’s woke me up many times when it started hissing . I’ve actually had the noise work into a dream,then woke up .

    Facial hair wouldn’t help keep it sealed properly,and I have my best luck when I’m clean shaven . I don’t use a full mask, just over the nose

    why would you not do a sleep study? that makes no sense. Cpap machines are extremely expensive, like a couple thousand, so you arent just going to go grab one, and if you have insurance and get a sleep study they cover most of it.

    Almost all my serious bodybuilder/powerlifter friends who arent twink physique bois use a cpap machine, seems to come with the territory of being a big muscular dude who competes in fitness.

    Has anyone had a sleep study done? If so is it like an overnight stay? I'd think the full 7-8 hrs of sleep right? Also, do most health insurance companies cover it?

    I'm looking into getting done as I think I might have sleep apnea, but it's weird for weeks I'll sleep like a rock, but some other times I'll wake up gasping for air. Lately, it's subsided, but I'd like to get to the bottom of this. Thanks in advance.

    For me 10 years ago it was an overnight stay. The doctor had a private practice and had a bunch of rooms in the back made up like hotel rooms. There were cameras in the room so they could monitor you while you slept (sorry no fapping). And they hooked a bunch of electrodes up to me.

    After my diagnosis I had to go back again for my first night with the c-pap.

    I believe these days they can do home testing, sending you home with some equipment and monitoring remotely.

    Yes health insurance covers the sleep study, and the c-pap machine if you as diagnosed with sleep apnea, but your deductible will apply.

    good luck bro
    This machine is obsolete

    they have at home and overnight at a sleep center. i did the at home version years ago that came back negative but the chit fell off of me in the night sometime. the sleep center version is the way to go. they attach all sorts of wires and whatnot to you. i have a difficult time sleeping anywhere from home so i decided to get baked in the parking lot before i went in to ensure i would sleep. once asleep they woke me up after a few hours and put a cpap/mask on me and i slept the rest of the night. i went from having 30+ episodes per hour to maybe 1-2 episodes per hour with my APAP machine

    insurance covered my sleep study & APAP machine and pays for new gear(masks, hoses, etc) every 3 months

    They usually are about 6 hours because they have to hook you up to all sorts of stuff. You go to your doctor who refers you to a sleep specialist and then insurance should cover a portion, not many insurance companies now if any have 100% coverage on anything before a deductible so you're looking at spending a hundred or two out of pocket. It is two studies too, one is to diagnose and see where you lie on the sleep apnea scale and the other one is to record everything to set your machine to the right levels and write your prescription for the CPAP machine.

    Its a major cause of death in this country actually because sleep apnea leads to brain and heart damage pretty significantly and you can have varying degrees of severity of how low your blood oxygen level gets with sleep apnea which can accelerate the damage a LOT. For instance I woke up about 200-300 times each study and my blood oxygen level was at 70% which you get brain and heart damage at levels below 90%, I would have died by now if I did not get a cpap machine.
