Got a new humidifier but still have the problem. No answer yet from the supplier.

Thanks for the link. Still working on the problem. Can't figure out why it will work okay for a few nights, then suddenly get a humidifier failure message on my machine. I might try a new CPAP machine. Perhaps that's the problem.

I just had the humidifier replaced. Am checking with the supplier. Hope I can get an answer.

Does anyone have problems with the Luna H60 heated humidifier? I keep getting a "humidifier failure" message after using it for a short time. I have a new humidifier and a new water container and have not changed the way I sleep. This is a new development and is baffling. The CPAP machine works fine without the humidifier but I'd prefer being able to use both together.

I was told I can wash my hose every other day if I use distilled vinegar (3 cups water to one cup vinegar). I pour it through my hose many times. I like to rinse my nasal pillow every day. I have been doing this for over a year with no problems. I hang up my hose every day to dry. I also change the distilled water every other day. No problems.

Hopefully over time you will adjust to the CPAP machine and will see it as your friend. It does take a while to get used to. Now I can't sleep without it. Keep the thought in your mind that it is a way to improve your health and feel less tired during the day. Good luck.

Nov 30, 2018 · Total hip replacement - What to expect for recovery in Joint Replacements

I had my hips done in 2001 and 2003 without cement which meant it took longer to heal. I used a walker for 6 weeks the first time, and 3 weeks the second time. I think therefore it's important to find out how yours will be done. With cement you will be up and around more quickly. As my procedure was so long ago, I don't know how the hips are done today. I've had very good luck so far. No problems at all. Good luck to you.

Nov 3, 2018 · Cleaning your CPAP mask. in Sleep Health

I was originally told I could empty the water every 2-3 days, but I like to clean my hose on the same day I empty the water. It's easier to keep track of. It seems like there is a lot of varying information out there on how to keep the apparatus clean. I prefer the distilled vinegar because otherwise I'd have to wash the hose daily with soap and water. When I travel and can't get the vinegar, I clean every day. I'm willing to put up with the cleaning if I can get a good night's sleep. I wish there was some good scientific information on the best way to clean and on frequency. Anybody have such information?

I've been using the CPAP machine for about a year and a half. It has become essential for a good night's sleep. I was told I can clean the tubing every other day using distilled vinegar and water (3 cups water to 1 cup distilled vinegar). I just put it in a plastic bucket filled with the vinegar solution, pour the solution through the all plastic hose, and rinse with plain water. I clean the nasal cushion every day. I am religious about cleaning the tubing and it has become part of my morning routine. No big deal. I clean the other head gear about once a week and the distilled water holder about every two weeks. I change the water every other day and let it dry.
