CPAP pushing air into stomachI use to use my machine but it is very hard to use when air continues to go into m stomach and filing it like a balloon. I have to take off my mask and strain to sit up and expel all of he air from my stomach just by opening my mouth. Is there something else that I should do or that I should be aware of?01/03/2012 07:46 am | by Gabe Rincon
Gabe – contact your physician- this is a fairly common occurrence and is usually related to you not exhaling properly and “swallowing” the air. Talk w/ the physician or sleep center that prescribed the CPAP for you and they can help w/ recommendations or changes in pressure etc, that may help.01/10/2012 08:50 am | by LeighAnne
