    One thought on “Ten Things Doctors Won't Tell You About Your CPAP Machine”

    1. All cheers for CPAP!Elmore seems to have suffered from every CPAP adjustment problem, while many of us experience none or few of them; doesn't matter. If you have sleep apnea, CPAP WILL save your life, IF you take the sleep study in time. Additionally - without going into personal experience! - your family and friends may just find out that you aren't really an a$$hole. Well worth finding out.

    2. This is a new outlook on using CPAPIn my first year of CPAP I found Mr. Elmore's book to be very encouraging. I have put off using the machine by ten years, but have found it to be beneficial with the balance of humidity and better breathing for my COPD airways. Chronic bronchitis has improved.

    3. Thank you!Concise and informative. I like how the information was structured and presented for a CPAP ignorant person as myself. Thanks.

    4. Funny, somewhat helpfulThis is a short, based on a patients perspective. Nicely written somewhat informative. Beginners may find helpful information. Good inspiration

    5. Sleep goodVery informative information. Enjoyed reading it. I have had my machine for about a year now. It wasn't to hard to get use to sleeping without.

    6. If you think you have sleep apnea or you're going through the process of adjusting to a CPAP machine this book is worth the read. My apnea isn't as bad as Phil's but if I'd had this book when I was diagnosed things would have gone much smoother for me. Phil weaves in his wit and humor throughout this informative guide while sharing his personal near-death experiences. Every pulmonologist in the world should buy this book and give it away to their patients with sleep apnea.

    7. Good infoI have to have a sleep study soon and was unsure what the outcome would spell. So much of Mr. Empire's accounts sure hit home as to what I have been going through. I have had so many other tests done only to be told I "was normal". But my health kept getting worse then when I just couldn't breathe even sitting up I asked for this sleep study. This short easy to read and understand book has put me at ease and I feel more ready to tackle my sleep apnea.
