@Gracia Hello Gracia, thank you for opening this discussion. I'm sorry to hear you're still dealing with snoring. Let me tag some other members who can possibly share their experiences with this as well.
Hi everyone, how are you doing? Have you ever experienced continued snoring with your CPAP device? What does it mean? Is there something Gracia should do? Is it a sign of a problem with the fit of the mask or the air pressure?

I find that the nasal pillows are the best. They are light and non-invasive. The headband for the nasal pillows is barely detectable.

@Courtney_J The only time I snored with ny nasal mask was when the pressure was not high enough. but you need to know the difference between snoring and breathing with your mouth open. it is a different sound often mistaken for snoring. Buy a chin strap, it fits over your head and under your chin with a strap that goes around the back of your head. For sure if your still snoring you will need the pressure turned up. Also the AirSense 10 can be self titrating, it figures out the right pressure on its own.

Well folks some of us are experiencing a real problem. If any of you own a Phillips Dream Station ( White) The foam seal deteriorates and on top of that it causes cancer when inhaled. The FDA has said stop using your machine and Phillips says they can't replace the foam ring without FDA approval and the insurance company will not replace the cpap machine unless its at least 5 years old. and send you back to the manufacturer and the FDA.
