"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.
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.
