    I don't have sleep apnea / apnoea, or use a CPAP machine, but I know people who do.

    Recently the orthodontist who made my splint gave me a bunch of different resources for sleep,
    pain management etc and in there was a link to the new WINX machine. I dunno anything about it, but it sure looks a lot less bulky and annoying than a CPAP. Thought I'd pass it along in case it looks useful to anyone:

    Instead of a mask on your face/head, it uses a mouth-guard sort of appliance, attached to a small machine.

    If you need a BiPAP not CPAP this may not be useful. It requires nose breathing. About half the CFS patients with OSA cannot nose breathe.

    Thanks for this information. Very interesting. I found some citations but accidently deleted them.:eek: I will come back and post them later.

    From what I have read it looks like it's an individual solution depending on your situation.

    Again, thanks!!
