Why Is My Father's CPAP Sound So Loud. Motor-like on and off sound
I was looking for some answers and was glad to find your videos on youtube.
My dad bought a Devillbiss Intellipap automatic machine with a ResMed mask, his air pressure is required to be at 12. He's got the mahcine on the auto mode, with a humidifier and heater at level 3.
I'd like to ask you about the cyclical noise the machine makes when it pushes air while my dad's using it. As you said in the video where you reviewed 4 cpaps, noises to be considered are those the machine makes when on and then those it makes when someone starts using it. My mom's a light sleeper so that's the main issue we need to consider. When my dad puts the mask on and starts breathing there's is a humming or motor-like sound that comes on when the machine's pumping air and off when he exhales. So it goes on and off corresponding to his inhaling and exhaling. In your review video you said that the Resmed is a quieter machine, but is that only when its on and running or is the 'whistling' motor sound it makes when its being used also quieter as compared to the Devilbiss?
Secondly, my mom's complaining that she still hear light snoring sometimes. The rep says this is due to mask leakage probably while my dad's turning in his sleep. Has you come across that before?
