CPAP night 3

Last night, Jack desaturated (dropped his oxygen levels) even with the CPAP properly in place. It seems that Jack is so used to breathing through his mouth that he did it even with all the pressure pushing through his nose. I called the wonderful people at Respiratory Sleep Associates. Bruce, a respiratory therapist, met Jack and I at home at 5 pm so that he could fit Jack with a chin strap and so we could try some different headgear. The new headgear he brought does not really work for us but, as you can see pictured, the chin strap is doing its job so far. Here’s hoping for a restful night of sleep!
