"I originally started using the device, by
breaking off the soft palate lifter as I had trouble with gagging and found the device worked well except for a lot of
saliva. A couple weeks later I purchased another having been told that the device works better with both tongue retainer and
soft palate lifter in place. I found that I can now tolerate the soft palate lifter after more practice. I will keep the original
device for spare parts.
The saliva problem has gone away and I'm dreaming more and waking
up less. I found with CPAP that I was getting tired during the day even though my apneas were being treated. There was always
leaks, cleaning, hose getting in the way, the full face mask was pulling my lower jaw in and my sleep doctor prescribed Madofinal to keep me alert during the day, just prior to me researching for an alternative treatment.
You mention two advantages with your device on your web page, but I found that by having my teeth in the
mouth piece my lower jaw does not fall back and this also helps.
I just want to say, I'm now CPAP free, more
alert when I'm awake, I have less wake ups during the night and not in need of any medication. Thank you, Harry!

The sleep study with your device resulted in 0 obstructive
apneas but central apneas. The 3.7 result was cpap at home. The central apneas I had instead could not be explained.
My wife and I have put it down to the anxiety of attending the sleep study.
