PAP Mask: Practically tried them all.
PAP Machine: Use Phillips Respironics System One APAP with Aflex for mask testing
Humidifier: None
Pressure Setting: When testing, I use APAP with a range of 5-10

The red isn't from the tape. Techs use a red grease pencil to mark electrode placements on the scalp. The sore on that spot is from scrubbing electrode locations. Sometimes techs scrub harder or patients have more sensitive skin. The locations are scrubbed with a gritty paste that pulls up a layer of dirt, skin oils, and some skin. It being tender is normal. Them burrowing down to your skull is not.

Hope you slept more than you thought. :)
